Higgins Partnerships’ Site Manager scoops Regional Site Manager of the Year Award

Posted 25/11/2022

Christopher Homewood at Higgins Partnerships has won Regional Site Manager of the Year 2022 for his site at Hanwell Square, Boston Road, Hanwell, Greater London.  

This award showcases the dedication and commitment it takes to deliver quality in construction, and every year site managers across the country are rewarded for their exceptional contribution to home building with regional and national Site Manager Awards from LABC Warranty.

“I’m really pleased to be recognised by LABC Warranty for Regional Site Manager of the Year”, said Christopher Homewood. “Hanwell Square is a flagship development for the business, working in partnership with A2Dominion and it has given me a great opportunity to showcase the quality and performance I can achieve as project lead.

“There have been some challenges along the way, such as managing the progress of the development during the pandemic along with material resource issues which has required careful planning and logistical changes. We have also increased the number of units being delivered during construction from 333 to 360, by adding additional floors to the part built structure.

“Working with a fantastic team on site has helped mitigate key delays and disruptions and deliver a high-quality development that we are all really proud of.”

Chris has worked at Higgins Partnerships for six years as a Senior Project Manager successfully completing Wooddene Estate in Peckham before starting work at Hanwell Square.

LABC Warranty, the company that issues Site Manager Awards, is a latent defect insurance company. They insure newly-built and newly-converted developments against defects caused during construction.

Site managers are nominated for Site Manager Awards by LABC Warranty’s local risk surveyors, who cover as many as 3,000 sites a year, but only nominate a small number of site managers, making a nomination a rare achievement.

“Even with all the additional challenges posed by labour and materials shortages this year, site managers have continued their invaluable work,” said Sarah Sheppard, LABC Warranty Technical Director. “Despite more unprecedented challenges, the standard of construction across the board has once again been excellent, and it’s a privilege to recognise site managers for their contributions to that.”

The prestige of winning Regional Site Manager of the Year award is such that the award has its own category featured at the LABC Building Excellence Awards.
