A particularly good site team taking pride in their work was what gave the edge to site manager Mike James, winning his first NHBC Quality award for his work at David Wilson Homes’ prestigious Fairways development of luxury homes.
“I think the site team must have been what made the difference in impressing the judges – I have been following the same procedures on site for the last 26 years” said Mike, adding “Perhaps it is the quality of the homes too.”
“The team are over the moon with the award and we have all been congratulated by the managing director.”
One of the most challenging elements of the project has been working on the extremely tight site overlooking a golf course and avoiding causing inconvenience to neighbouring properties.
Mike, 55, has been in the construction industry since he was 17, starting as a carpenter and becoming a site manager at 27, having come up through the ranks fairly quickly.
Currently the last four homes on the site are being constructed and the project is on track to be completed by the end of August 2011.
Fairways comprises 10 luxury five bedroom houses on the edge of Camberley Heath Golf Club in the highly sought after area of Camberley. These properties fulfil every possible definition of luxury – from the quality of the materials, the standard of finish and the expansive space provided.
With a number of the exclusive homes offering superb views across the third hole of Camberley Heath Golf Course, this one-off development is set to become one of the area’s most desirable addresses.
With attention to detail and layouts optimised for modern living and entertainment, the spacious, light and airy ground floors include open plan kitchen/breakfast room, drawing room and separate dining room.
The kitchens have been specially commissioned and some feature a range cooker. The substantial drawing room has a feature fireplace and many properties have double or triple aspect windows to maximise light and views.
The bi-fold glass doors from the drawing room and the breakfast room are another stylish feature of these properties, extending the living area out into the garden. Glevum Design & Build are the Installers of windows, doors and conservatories on this development. The ground floor also benefits from under floor eating throughout.
The upper storey incorporates two solid, structurally-engineered floors minimising noise, together with five bedroom, bathrooms and ensuites. Some of the properties also include a dressing room from the master bedroom.
