Hills Homes in line for award

Written by Pete Davison.

housing development by Marlborough-based Hills Homes has been selected as a finalist for the West of England Local Authority Building Control Award’s 2011 in the category ‘Best Housing – Large Developer’.

Smith’s Court in Purton, a development of 13 cottage style homes set in the heart of Purton, will be judged alongside a number of other housing developments with the winner announced at an awards ceremony to be held at the Bristol Marriott Royal Hotel on Friday, June 24.

Regional winners go through to the LABC National finals to be held later in the year in London.

Last year, Hills Homes won the LABC West of England and National ‘Best small housing development’ Award for its seven exclusive homes at the Old Dairy, in Castle Combe, near Chippenham.

Nick King, group director Hills Property said, “It is an honour to be selected as a regional finalist two years in a row. We bring the same quality and care to all our developments and believe Smith’s Court has a real chance of making us double winners.”

At the time of going to press only five homes remain available for sale in the development.

The LABC West of England Building Excellence Awards recognise and reward the best quality, design, construction and project management across every class of building from domestic extensions, social housing, private housing, schools, hospitals, commercial and retail to industrial properties.

The regional finalists are acknowledged as amongst the best projects in England and Wales.
