Ortus Homes’ Bewick Grange development has received a commendation in the ‘Best Site’ award category of the prestigious NHBC Health and Safety awards.
The national awards scheme aims to recognise and reward housebuilders with exceptional health and safety standards, helping to drive up safety standards in the industry by showcasing best practice.
After a record number of entries, Bewick Grange’s Site Manager, Dave Haigh, scooped a commendation in the ‘Best Site’ category after being selected by an independent judging panel, and following multiple inspection visits carried out by NHBC Health and Safety advisors.
Now that the first-round winners have been announced, Bewick Grange will go on to compete for the Highly Commended, Regional and National titles to be announced at the Awards Gala Lunch on 3 July 2015.
Steve Secker, Regional Managing Director for Ortus Homes, said:
We always put the health and safety of our workforce and the general public first and to see that recognised with these awards is extremely rewarding.
At Ortus Homes we are committed to creating communities that help older people stay independent for longer, and this award will provide an extra boost to our dedicated site management teams to show that their efforts in this regard don’t go unnoticed.
My warmest congratulations go to our Site Manager Dave, and we wish him every success in the next stages.
Dave Haigh, Site Manager for Bewick Grange, said:
I’m absolutely delighted to have received a commendation in the ‘Best Site’ award category, and would like to thank the whole site team at Bewick Grange for their commitment to upholding the very best health and safety standards.
Currently under construction, Bewick Grange on Swan Road will welcome its first homeowners in Autumn 2015.
