We’re crowned winners at regional awards
One of our developments has been announced winner of ‘Best Small Social or Affordable Housing Development’ at the Local Authority Building Control awards (LABC), with another taking runner up of ‘Best Social or Affordable Housing Development’.
These awards are the largest business to business honours in the building control sector, and they aim to recognise quality in many different types of project.
The development taking first prize in ‘Best Small Social or Affordable Housing Development’ category is on Holgate Road in Scunthorpe and includes a total of 16 one-bedroom homes. They are set in popular area of the town and each home comes with spacious living areas, private parking and list of modern features.
Runner up in the hugely competitive category of ‘Best Social or Affordable Housing Development’ is a site of 27 homes on Cottage Beck Road in Scunthorpe, which are a mix of three and four bedroom homes.
Martin Phillips, our Development Manager, said: “We are honoured that not just one, but two of our developments has been celebrated at such fantastic and widely recognised awards in the industry.
“It means a great deal to us that the homes we provide are of excellent quality and it’s great that we can compete with other major developers in the region.
“We have ambitious plans to work with more local contractors to build hundreds of homes each year for rent, shared ownership and outright sale. So be sure to keep an eye out for our latest exciting announcements.”
We worked with local building contractor GS Kelsey, BSB Architecture and DBA Management Consultants to design and deliver the homes on both sites.
Andrew Kelsey, Managing Director at G S Kelsey Construction Ltd, commented: “Our latest two projects with Ongo have achieved some really positive outcomes. We all work together attentively and with a shared sense of purpose to make the development process run smoothly and with a real emphasis on quality.
“The LABC Awards and commendations signify this and demonstrate that as a team we are getting it right.”
