What House? Awards 2013

Berkeley Group has taken the coveted Housebuilder of the Year title at the 'Oscars' of the housebuilding industry, the What House? Awards 2013.

What House? Awards 2013 logoThe Group took the crown at the Awards Gala Luncheon, held in front of a sell-out audience of 1,500 of the industry's most senior figures at the Grosvenor House Hotel on Friday 15 November.

The Group also won Best Large Housebuilder and awards in the Best Lanscape Design, Best Brownfield Development and Best Mixed-Use Development categories.

Other notable winners include CALA Homes, Housebuilder of the Year in 2012 and retaining its Best Medium Housebuilder title in 2013, and Antler Homes, which also retained its Best Small Housebuilder award.

The What House? Awards judges said about Berkeley Group: "The [company] wins the biggest prize in British housebuilding for its exceptional all-round achievements across the price range, but, crucially, also for going beyond just the homes to deliver new, sustainable communities, as well as giving something back. It is as commercially successful as it is sustainable, with rising revenues and profits. Berkeley measures its impact far beyond bricks and mortar. Berkeley, under chairman Tony Pidgley and managing director Rob Perrins, sees the social fabric of a community as the true legacy, the long-term barometer of a business and its contribution to the environment. Congratulations to everyone at Berkeley on winning the industry's most prestigious award."
