Places for People has been named
Housebuilder of the Year at the prestigious Building Awards, held
at the Grosvenor House Hotel in Mayfair last night (Tuesday 8th
The award recognises the Group's
extensive and diverse approach to housebuilding over the last 12
months - as well a pipeline that has tripled to deliver 15,000 new
homes in the coming years.
The judges acknowledged the Group's
central placemaking approach, which focusses on providing vital
local infrastructure and facilities alongside new housing, in order
to create attractive neighbourhoods and communities that ensure the
success of both places and people in the long term.
This month's Building award follows
closely on from our success at the Estates Gazette Awards in
September, where the Group was named Residential Company of the
Year for the first time.
Organised by Building Magazine, and
hosted by Cold Feet actor James Nesbit, the Building Awards
welcomed more than 1,400 construction professionals to last night's
event, celebrating excellence in a wide range of construction

"This year's continued award success
is testament to the hard work of a great number of people within
the organisation, as well as our strong working relationships with
partners in both the public and private sectors.
"Places for People has always
strived to break the mould of traditional housebuilding, to deliver
thriving communities where people want to live, want to stay, and
are enabled to reach their full potential."
