Our Southern Counties business unit has clinched a prestigious housebuilding award for our Alver Village development in Gosport, Hampshire.
Alver Village was named ‘Best Development of the Year (51+ units)’ at the Local Authority Building Control (LABC) Regional Building Excellence Awards, which took place at the Leadenhall Building, Leadenhall Street, London on Thursday 3rd November.
Alver Village is part of the Rowner Regeneration Project – an ambitious, eight-year regeneration plan by Taylor Wimpey, Hampshire County Council, Gosport Borough Council, the Homes and Community Agency and First Wessex Housing Association, to bring much-needed investment to the area.
The aim of the Rowner Regeneration Project was to replace the 500 sub-standard, poorly-maintained properties and dilapidated shopping parade with 629 new, high-quality houses and apartments, while a new 20,000 sq ft Tesco supermarket, a pharmacy, Costa coffee shop and Subway outlet now form the development’s thriving shopping area.
Now in its fourth stage, Alver Village has proven to be a huge hit with the local community and has attracted property-seekers from all walks of life, including first-time buyers, families and – thanks to the area’s strong links with the Royal Navy – service personnel.
Roz Wells, Associate Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey Southern Counties, says: “We are absolutely delighted to win this award for Alver Village, it is a fantastic achievement and a real testament to everyone involvement in the site.
“Alver Village has revitalised what was an unloved part of Gosport into a thriving new community with a fabulous selection of high-quality homes and first-rate facilities on offer.
“I’d like to take this opportunity to say a massive well done to our team for all of their hard work!”
The LABC Regional Building Excellence Awards recognise achievements in the construction industry – rewarding excellent buildings, outstanding companies, and partnerships and individuals that go that extra mile.
There’s a superb selection of two and three-bedroom homes currently available at Alver Village.
