The ceremony held in Leicester last week recognises quality of workmanship and management standards at the Landex development Goodlands, Boxford.

This award automatically qualifies Derek to be nominated for the NHBC national awards ceremony which will be held in London in January next year.

He will compete with site managers from the ten other NHBC regions of the UK for the national prize.

Both Derek and Landex are no strangers to winning this award.
