Lovell has been recognised by national safety charity RoSPA – the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents – for its commitment to keeping its staff, subcontractors and the public safe over the past 12 years.
The Broadland Business Park company, which develops and sells high-quality homes across East Anglia, has been presented with the RoSPA President’s Award to mark its achievement of 12 consecutive Gold awards through the RoSPA Health and Safety Awards programme – the UK’s longest-running industry awards scheme.
Lovell regional health and safety manager Glenn Whitten says: “Nothing is more important to us than the safety and welfare of our staff, our subcontractor partners and the public. I’m delighted that we have once again been recognised by RoSPA for our continuing commitment to looking after everyone based at our sites and offices, and the people in local communities where we build.”
Julia Small, RoSPA’s head of qualifications, awards and events, says: “The RoSPA awards are the most highly-respected in the health and safety arena, with almost 2,000 entrants every year, and allow each organisation to prove excellence in the workplace, demonstrating a commitment to the wellbeing of not only employees but all those who interact with it.”
Lovell residential developments in the region include Firs Park, Hellesdon: a £13.8 million, 67-home scheme creating 57 homes for open market sale and ten affordable homes on the northern side of Norwich. Among other high-profile developments is Heath Farm, Holt: a £58.6 million development of 162 open market sale homes and 51 affordable homes – for affordable rent and shared ownership through Victory Housing Trust – on Holt’s south-eastern edge. In King’s Lynn, Lovell has recently launched Dewside, a £14.2 million development of 89 open market sale and affordable homes. The development is the second scheme to be delivered through Lovell’s large-scale partnership with the Borough Council of King’s Lynn and West Norfolk.
