Crest is Housebuilder of the Year


Crest Nicholson has been crowned large Housebuilder of the Year for the second year running at the 2015 Housebuilder Awards at a packed ceremony in London.
A2Dominion won medium sized Housebuilder of the Year, while small Housebuilder of the Year was handed to Larkfleet.


The best housebuilder accolades were the culmination of a night of celebration hosted by comedian Tim Vine, in which Barratt scooped the Sustainable housebuilder of the Year gong.
The Housebuilder Awards are organised by Housebuilder magazine and supported by NHBC and HBF. They reward excellence across the housebuilding disciplines.


Crest won the Best community initiative award and also picked up the award for Best design (four storeys or more) for its Townhouse Collection at Bath Riverside. Fabrica by A2Dominion won Best low or zero carbon initiative for Elmsbrook at NW Bicester.


Other winners included Taylor Wimpey, for Best marketing initiative, Keepmoat for Best regeneration initiative while Beal Developments won the Best customer satisfaction award.
Ortus Homes, from McCarthy & Stone, took the Best retirement scheme award for Scarlet Oak in Solihull. Best design (three storeys or fewer) went to Countryside for the Hemingway at Aura in Cambridge, while Hopkins Homes won the new Best refurbishment award.


In the Best product category Donaldson Timber Engineering’s SafeStep led the way while Oregon Timber Frame secured Subcontractor of the Year.
