Westcountry homebuilder Cavanna Homes have picked up one of the top honours in a prestigious national industry awards scheme. The 2019 Housebuilder Awards saw Cavanna Homes named Medium Housebuilder of the Year, recognising the firm’s strong commitment to “building brilliance” and well-designed high-quality new homes.
The homebuilders’ Primrose Hill development in the seaside town of Torquay was highly commended in the ‘Best Design for Three Storeys or Fewer’ category, with the firm’s vibrant Yarners Mill development in the Devon village of Dartington also shortlisted in this category.
Cavanna Homes’ successful apprenticeship scheme was shortlisted for ‘Best Training or Recruitment Initiative’ alongside six others.
“We’re thrilled to be recognised in these highly respected awards and to be named Medium Housebuilder of the Year is a brilliant achievement and testament to our on-going commitment and passion to building high-quality new homes,” said Andy Addison, Operations Director at Cavanna Homes.
“This has been one of the busiest construction years to date for the firm with our highest number of developments across Devon, Cornwall and Somerset, so to be recognised in these awards which shine a light on the best in the housebuilding industry is something to be proud of.”
The Housebuilder Awards, in partnership with the National House Building Council (NHBC) and the Home Builders Federations (HBF), recognise innovation and excellence in the housebuilding industry.
Primrose Hill is a development of 155 new 2, 3 and 4-bedroom properties set on a hilltop site within green, landscaped areas that form an impressive gateway to Torquay.
Cavanna Homes’ Yarners Mill development transformed a redundant workspace into a vibrant community of 30 open market and affordable new homes, complementing the village of Dartington, near Totnes.
As part of the homebuilder’s commitment to nurturing up-and-coming talent in construction, Cavanna Homes has welcomed its largest intake of apprentices to date.
The awards ceremony took place at the InterContinental in London – The O2.
