A £2.5m homes project in Northumberland has attracted a national award.
Isos Housing worked alongside contractor Hodgson Sayers to re-roof 421 homes in Prudhoe, earning the top spot for best roofing contract at the LHC 2014 Awards held in central London. LHC provides procurement services for the construction, rehabilitation and maintenance of public sector buildings, and it introduced the awards to recognise industry best practice.
The work on the Oaklands and West Wylam estates was carried out during 2012/13, during which time LHC inspectors visited the sites several times. They reported that the contract was one of the best run they had ever monitored.
It was also noted that Stanley-based Hodgson Sayers recycled most of the old roofing materials, minimising impact on the environment.
Contract manager Norman Liddle said: “We are so proud to have won this award, and overwhelmed by the judges being so complimentary.”
Managing director of Hodgson Sayers, John Sayers, added: “To be recognised by the industry and to fly the flag for the North East is a great honour and testament to the region’s talented workforce.”
