2011 What House? Award Winners

United House

The team from United House, What House? Housebuilder of the Year 2011


18th November 2011 - United House Developments was awarded the prestigious Housebuilder of the Year accolade - the biggest prize in new homes - at the What House? Awards earlier today at London's Grosvenor House Hotel.

Now in their 30th year, the What House? Awards with www.whathouse.co.uk are the most coveted and longest established new homes awards, celebrating the achievements of housebuilders and developers in the UK, both large and small, across 21 categories.

Rupert Bates, editorial director of whathouse.co.uk, said: "The What House? Awards, considered the ‘Oscars' of the housebuilding industry, showcase some of the UK's most exciting and dynamic new developers, as well as highlighting the innovations among the industry's big players. This year's awards ceremony has been one of the biggest and most successful ever. It is great to see that, even in an extremely tough economic climate, so many housebuilders and developers have sustained their ethos on quality. United House Developments, the residential arm of the United House Group, is one such builder that has not and never will compromise on this and we are proud to have awarded them housebuilding's biggest award."

The judging panel at the What House? Awards had this to stay about the winners: "We would like to congratulate United House on winning the new homes industry's greatest accolade. In the last year, United House Developments has delivered 191 units, with a vast price range - from a £130,000 apartment in a Hounslow regeneration scheme, up to a £5.5 million property at Central St Giles in London's Covent Garden. There is more to come, with future developments totalling more than £500 million, among them some hugely exciting and mould-breaking projects."
