Award Winning Housebuilder

Three Grace Homes Developments Reach the Finals of the Building Excellence Awards

The team at Grace Homes were delighted that three separate developments reached the Finals of the prestigious LABC Building Excellence Awards for the Central Region. The Fieldings in Brigstock was short-listed for two awards - Best Small New Housing Development and Best Change of Use of an Existing Building or Conversion. White Lodge Farm in Burton Latimer, and Mackworth Drive in Finedon were also both short-listed in the Best Small New Housing Development.

Everyone worked closely together to ensure the works were completed to a high level of compliance, and this has been borne out by the positive feedback received by the building control surveyors. As ever, our customers are the most important barometer of how well we have performed. Some of the positive feedback received for these developments includes:

“All of our friends and family have been very impressed with the property, and we are hugely impressed with the quality of the finish.”

“We have lived in two new builds before, but Grace Homes’ quality of build and finish is much, much higher.”
