Hopkins Homes honoured for restoration
Hopkins Homes' beats stiff competition at national awards ceremony.
East Anglia's largest independent housebuilder has been recognised for its restoration of a Victorian listed building.
Hopkins Homes' Bure Place development at Aylsham in Norfolk was awarded the Best Refurbishment accolade at this year's prestigious Housebuilder Awards held at the Tower Hotel in London's St Katherine's Dock where they were up against a number of national housebuilders.
The conversation formed part of the St Michael's Place development for which Hopkins Homes also recently received the Development of the Year title at the Sunday Times British Homes Awards.
James Hopkins, executive chairman of Hopkins Homes said of this latest award: "It is simply fantastic to see our hard work and commitment to high quality design being rewarded on a national scale once again. Our developments are purposefully and sympathetically designed to preserve and enhance the local community. Bure Place is a perfect example of this commitment. We have restored many original 19th Century features like catellated parapets, ogee plain-tiled domes, stone mullion, and transom windows and have blended these with modern kitchens, sumptuous bathrooms and spacious living accommodation. We are fortunate to have very talented and skilled members of staff and suppliers who help us to consistently deliver much-needed high quality homes for communities in the East of England.
"I would like to thank them all for making winning this award possible."
