Walton Homes builds on success at national construction awards

Family run housebuilder Walton Homes is celebrating after two of its developments were chosen as annual winners of the LABC’s The Bricks Development of the Year Awards (The Bricks).

Walton Homes earned their place in the prestigious national construction awards shortlist when its Acresford Park and Woodwinds developments won the LABC Warranty’s monthly Site Recognition Awards. Winners of a Site Recognition Award are nominated by LABC Warranty’s risk management surveyors during their regular inspections of building sites, with site manager Andy Shenton recognised for his management of Acresford Park in Handsacre, and Carl Brough for his management of the Woodwinds development in Tamworth.

Site Recognition Awards score building sites for the standards of health and safety, workmanship, site tidiness and site management observed by surveyors. All monthly Site Recognition Award winners for the year are entered into The Bricks consideration, with LABC Warranty’s technical specialists selecting a shortlist. This rigorous, evidence-led approach makes The Bricks one of the most prestigious awards that builders and site managers in England and Wales can earn.

Walton Homes Director, Amy Summerton, said: “We’re delighted to receive recognition from the LABC in The Bricks Development of the Year Awards – and thrilled we have achieved this across two of our sites! I’m particularly pleased for Carl, Andy and their teams working across the sites – this award is recognition of their hard work, professionalism and expertise.”

“As a family business, we pride ourselves on our locally sourced team of building and construction specialists’ long-standing commitment to delivering excellence for our communities.”

“The Bricks is one of the hardest prizes to win as a builder and site manager,” said Sarah Dee-Shapland, Technical Director at LABC Warranty. “It requires site managers and their teams to work constantly to uphold quality, safety, and workmanship across all the plots under their care.

“Winning a Brick also requires the buy-in of builders to support their site managers, backing them to put together teams and contractors to deliver great homes on great sites. I’d like to offer my congratulations to The Bricks winners this year, they should all be proud of the incredible work they’ve done on their sites.”
