The Lane End Group have been shortlisted in the prestigious North West Construction Awards.
The development, called The Maples, on Westhead Avenue site in Kirkby has been named on the shortlist for the Sub-regional Project of the Year Award – Liverpool.
This is the second time in a matter of months that The Maples has been shortlisted after it was also recognised by Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors.
The Maples is a 170 extra care and affordable housing scheme in Kirkby. The scheme is scheduled for completion at the end of the year.
Richard Harrison, Lane End Group Managing Director, said: “We’re very proud to be shortlisted at this event. It’s also pleasing to see that our scheme in Kirkby is being considered for this award category. It’s a development that will transform the area and crucially provide much needed homes.”
The North West Construction Awards, which is in its 19th year, is the most significant celebration of best practice and best value in the North West and the only event of its kind that connects every single discipline of construction working towards a sustainable built environment.
Professor Peter McDermott, Chair of the North West Judging Panel Constructing Excellence in the North West, said: “We want to showcase excellence in the North West construction sector. Excellence will be demonstrated through adherence to Constructing Excellence principles, the Rethinking Construction agenda and Construction 2025.
“We want to demonstrate that excellence is endemic in the North West and showcase leadership in best practice, value and building for the future.”
Julie Moss, Knowsley Council’s Executive Director for Health and Wellbeing, added: “This is a fantastic achievement for the development to be recognised through these prestigious awards. This latest high-quality scheme in Knowsley will provide much-needed extra care accommodation for our residents who benefit from support and reassurance to live independently.”
The 2019 Awards will take place on Friday 12 July 2019 at The Titanic Hotel, Liverpool.
