A SALTNEY housing estate earned a Wales building company an award.
The Boundary Lane development won Anwyl Construction the title of North Wales’s best homebuilder.
The Rhyl-based family construction firm retained the title they won last year at an awards ceremony at the St David’s Park Hotel, Ewloe.
Anwyls was voted Best Volume Housebuilder by the Building Control departments of North Wales’s local authorities for their 128-property development at Boundary Lane, Saltney.
It was one of four awards picked up by Anwyls on the night. Among the other awards was a Volume Housebuilder accolade for a development in Mold Road, Gwersyllt.
Ian Vaughan-Evans, head of Flintshire Building Control, the authority which nominated Anwyls for the Saltney development, said: “This is the eighth year of the awards and Anwyl Construction have probably won more than any other firm.”
The properties at Saltney range from four-bedroomed detached homes to two-bedroom apartments and include two with solar panel heating.
The site manager is Pat Kelly who has been with Anwyls for eight years and was delighted with the award.
He said: “It’s fantastic and I know the competition was very tight so it’s great to come out on top.
“Every week you learn something new and we’re always trying to improve.”
The Saltney development was nominated by Flintshire Building Control officer Laurence Harrison, who said: “The job has gone brilliantly. Anwyls know what they’re doing and they know what the regulations are.
“The estate speaks for itself, it’s well built and the presentation is excellent and in fairness to Pat he’s done really well here for Anwyls and for us, it’s been hunky-dory and he deserves the award.”
Anwyls director Mat Anwyl said: “We’re naturally very pleased to have once again been very successful in the North Wales Building Control Awards.
“The fact we have been awarded this Building Control accolade is a testimony to the site team and the job they’ve done.
“It’s always nice to have your work recognised and it’s especially nice for Iain Murray, the contracts manager, and for Pat Kelly and the staff here who have worked very hard on this project.”
