Well it may not have been Brucie or, dare we say it, Tess, but it was nevertheless a great honour to receive a national honour for our Old Brewery development in Hambledon from none other than the dancing ace himself, John Sergeant!
Our landmark project, a joint venture with partner Bargate Homes which delivered 28 new homes on the site of the former Hartridges Brewery, had already won the prestigious accolade of the Local Authority Building Control (LABC) awards for Best Large Housing Development in the south east region, as well as the NHBC Pride in the Job award.
Now at the national finals it scooped its third award, winning Highly Commended in the LABC National Best Large Developer category.
All the entries were regional winners drawn from across the entire country so the standard of competition was extremely high. Due to the very high standards the judges awarded a number of Highly Commended certificates.
Tony Burton said: “Such a huge amount of thought, care and attention goes into each of our developments and to be recognised nationally and by an industry benchmark such as the LABC, is a great honour, reflects the very high standards Bargate Homes set and is an accolade in particular for site manager Dave Guy. The whole of Metis Homes is very proud to have been involved in this special scheme.”
