Nottinghamshire housebuilder nominated for Building Excellence award
Rippon Homes’ Wellow Gardens development in Ollerton has been shortlisted for the East Midlands Local Authority Building Control (LABC) Building Excellence Awards 2020.
The exclusive collection of three-bedroom bungalows has been nominated for Best High-Volume Housing Development for the East Midlands region.
Built using modern methods of construction with timber from the market-leading Walker Timber Group, the properties at Wellow Gardens are designed to be sustainable and more economical to run, with details like improved insulation ensuring efficient heating. The homes are all beautifully crafted, providing every homeowner with ensuites, spacious rooms and internal storage space, as well as turfed, fenced rear gardens, allocated parking and a garage.
Tom Fairlie, sales director of Walker Timber Engineering, said, “We are delighted to have worked with Rippon Homes in providing energy efficient factory-built homes that are manufactured to a high standard and with a commitment to sustainability.”
Set in the village of Ollerton, just 20 miles from Nottingham and nine miles from Mansfield, the development is ideal for commuters with great transport links to Mansfield, Nottingham, Lincoln and Sheffield through the nearby A614 and A1.
The annual awards celebrate the achievements of individuals in the construction industry, as well as excellent buildings, compliance with regulations, craftsmanship, and the ability to think of creative solutions for difficult problems. This year’s winners are due to be announced on Thursday 27 August 2020.
Rippon Homes is a partner of the LABC, meaning that it ensures buildings are safe and follows standards set by the regulatory bodies through the building regulations.
Ian Dyke, managing director at Rippon Homes, said: “We are absolutely delighted to be shortlisted for this award.
“We put a great deal of care and consideration into the location and design of every development, so it is wonderful to have that recognised by LABC.”
