Midlands-Based Developer Crowned 'Best New Housing Development' for Third Year Running

The team at Grace Homes is on cloud nine, having been crowned ‘Winners’ at the coveted LABC Building Excellence Awards for the third year running.

Ashlawn Meadows, a development of ten striking new homes on the outskirts of Rugby, triumphed over finalists across the West Midlands to be awarded the title of ‘Best Medium Volume New Housing Development’. This follows similar successes in 2021 and 2020 when Grace Homes’ developments “The Orchard” at Swinford and “Langdale” at Thorpe Langton were both ‘Regional Winners’ in the East Midlands.

The LABC Building Excellence Awards reward excellent buildings, outstanding companies, and individuals that go that extra mile. Often referred to as ‘the Oscars’ for the housebuilding sector, the selection process is rigorous, starting with nominations made in each of the LABC’s 12 regions. Entries are judged regionally, and as a winner, Grace Homes has also been entered into the national awards ceremony due to take place in January 2023.

Henry Barney, Managing Director of Grace Homes, said:

“Despite the complications of the pandemic, Ashlawn Meadows was exceptionally well-managed, with efficient communication between all members of the project team. The resulting homes have been very well received and are a testament to everyone’s hard work.”

Grace Homes has been building homes in Northamptonshire, Leicestershire and Warwickshire since 1997. Over the years they’ve built hundreds of homes in many locations, whilst still holding the same levels of passion and enthusiasm as when the business first started. From their thoughtful designs and creative use of space, through to their rigorous standards of construction and uncommonly high quality of finish, Grace Homes builds houses that people aspire to live in and are proud to call their home.

Grace Homes is currently building homes in Hallaton, Nether Broughton, and Melton Mowbray, with new projects in progress at Stoke Albany and Barton Seagrave.
