A retirement living complex built by Lovell in Peterborough for independent living provider Cross Keys Homes has been Highly Commended at one of the construction industry’s top awards events.
The Lapwing Apartments scheme was honoured in the Social Housing Development of the Year category at The Bricks awards, organised by LABC Warranty and judged by a panel of industry experts.
The Highly Commended award recognises the impressive build quality of the Orton Brimbles development which was completed by Lovell in September 2017. It has created 54 stylish, modern one- and two-bedroom apartments for residents aged over 55 as well as a range of communal facilities including a restaurant, library, orangery and wildflower-style garden.
The Bricks awards – which were announced at an exclusive ceremony at The Shard in London – highlight exceptional construction developments displaying excellent build quality, high standards of site management and leadership and strong organisational skills and customer service.
Lovell contracts manager Brian Leslie, project manager Chris Cooper and senior site manager Phil Tipping represented the company at the awards event.
Lovell regional managing director Simon Medler says: “Lapwing Apartments has delivered outstanding contemporary accommodation for Cross Keys Homes’ residents. I’m delighted that this Highly Commended award recognises the skill and dedication of the construction team and the superb quality standards achieved at the development. My congratulations to everyone involved.”
Chief executive of Cross Keys Homes, Claire Higgins, says: “We would like to offer our congratulations to Lovell on this commendation. Lapwing Apartments is a fantastic addition to our portfolio of extra care accommodation and is already making a huge difference to the residents who have moved in. It is enabling them to live independently, in their own homes, knowing that the support and facilities they need are on hand, 24 hours a day. It’s a lovely scheme and we are very pleased to have been able to work with Lovell on making it happen!”
