Winning streak continues with bumper awards haul

The accolades keep on coming for Anderson, as the team celebrates the latest crop of national awards and nominations.

Over the last few weeks, Anderson has scooped prizes in three separate awards – the Evening Standard New Homes Awards, the First Time Buyer Readers’ Awards, and the National House Building Council’s (NHBC) Pride in the Job awards.

The company has also been named finalists in the Housebuilder Awards, which take place next month.

High praise from judges

The most recent win came at the Evening Standard New Homes Awards, where Anderson won in the Best First Time Buyer Home category, for the Faversham Lakes development in Kent.

Judges singled out the innovative Faversham Lakes project, which includes 330 two-, three-, four- and five-bedroom contemporary homes in parkland teeming with wildlife.

Anderson were also finalists in the Best Large Development category, held in London, for the same project.

The awards, which were announced on September 17, are judged by an independent panel of property experts and the Evening Standard’s readers, who look for homes and developments that mark the “very best in modern housebuilding”.

Boundless living

The Faversham Lakes project was also highlighted earlier in September, when Anderson scooped the Best Large Development award in the national First Time Buyer Readers’ Awards.

The scheme won the praise of judges for expanding on the concept of boundless living, with all of its houses embracing spacious open-plan design as well as the idea of bringing the outside in.

Pride in the Job

It was also celebration time for Project Manager Alan Clarke who was recognised by the NHBC for excellence in on-site management.

The accolade, which was given at the annual Pride in the Job awards, was for Alan’s involvement in the Faversham Lakes development.

Now in its 41st year, a Pride in the Job award recognises site managers who demonstrate incredible dedication, passion, commitment and leadership to produce homes of exceptional quality.

Looking to the future

Anderson is now looking forward to the Housebuilder Awards which take place in November, where it is in the running for two prestigious national accolades.

The company has been named as a finalist in two categories – Best Regeneration Initiative category for the innovative Quarry project in Erith and Subcontractor/Services Provider of the Year.

The company is also in the running for two prizes at the National Building and Construction Awards.

Anderson is in the finals for Contractor of the Year (contract value over £5m) and Apprentice of the Year for Sasha Harvey.
