The gala dinner at the Hilton NEC Birmingham was organised to recognise the most impressive and innovative residential developers, projects and initiatives across the Midlands over the last 12 months. The black tie event was organised by Insider Media Limited and was attended by a range of developers, consultants, local authorities and registered providers.
Regional house building specialists Kier Living Central have experienced an impressive year against a challenging economic backdrop, completing 431 private sale homes while working with local authority partners to deliver 321 affordable homes. This was achieved in a year which also saw Kier secure the largest allocation of funds from the Homes and Communities Agency of any developer nationally (£41.9m) to build just over 1,700 new shared ownership homes in England over the next four years, as part of the Shared Ownership and Affordable Homes Programme 2016 to 2021.
Chris King, Managing Director of Kier Living Central commented on the highly commended award received at the awards ceremony;
“To receive such an honour against such stiff competition and against the head winds that developers up and down the country are experiencing is a true testament of the work that has been put in by the team at Kier Living Central. We should all feel proud of what we have achieved in what has been a challenging 12 months.”
“Schemes like Bilston Urban Village, where 17 homes sold within a couple of weeks and before the show homes were complete illustrate the strength of the Kier Living offer which focuses on creating high quality homes and stand out neighbourhoods and communities.”
The award at this year’s Midlands Residential Property Awards comes off the back of last year’s success at the WhatHouse Awards, where Balaam Wood in Birmingham received the silver award in the Best Starter Home category and Kier Living’s recent shortlisting for the Best Residential Developer award at this year’s Construction News Awards.
