Hollingbourne Developer Awarded Seal of Excellence Award

Senior Project Manager Simon Bettridge (35) of Fernham Homes has been chosen to receive the coveted Pride in the Job Seal of Excellence Award, following on from his earlier Quality Awards win this summer, by the National House Building Council (NHBC). Simon has been acknowledged for his work at the Tonbridge-based housebuilder’s Ellesmere development in Hollingbourne.

The Pride in the Job Quality Awards only recognises sites which are run to the highest possible standards and are consistently delivering new homes of outstanding quality. Of those selected by the judges, only the very best will go on to receive a Seal of Excellence Award. This shows the commitment of Simon, as well as AB Canham (Fernham Homes’ sister company) who are the builders of these award-winning homes, to excellence in construction and making customer satisfaction a top priority.

Simon, who lives locally in Chatham, comments:

“It is an honour to be recognised for the work that we put in to make sure the homes at Ellesmere are of excellent quality. I’d like to thank the whole team that work tirelessly, we are very proud of the homes we deliver.”

This year, there were around 11,000 applicants and just 450 individuals were selected to receive Pride in the Job Quality Awards of which two came from AB Canham, demonstrating the housebuilder’s dedication to providing high-quality homes to local communities. Of these 450, just 14 Site Managers from the South East were awarded a Seal of Excellence.

Paul Rosbrook, Operations Director for Fernham Homes, added:

“For Simon to have not only won a Quality Award, but to go on to be selected for a Seal of Excellence Award is a real achievement, and shows just how hard our construction teams work to produce the very best homes for our customers. We are extremely proud and would like to congratulate Simon and his team at Ellesmere for their hard work.”

Founded in 1997 by Ian Fern and Michael Canham and later joined by David Masters, the company has been building homes throughout Kent for over 20 years. Fernham Homes is now marketing a range of distinctive developments in locations including Boughton Monchelsea, Hollingbourne, Greenhithe and Westerham, and has also recently launched an innovative bespoke homes scheme in Linton Hill, near Maidstone. The housebuilder hopes to achieve its ambitious growth plans and bring new sites into the business, across its Kent heartland, as well as in East Sussex and Greater London. This month, Fernham has also exchanged on a new site which will offer 45 new homes, including 18 affordable homes, in the village of Matfield, near Royal Tunbridge Wells.

Kentish Housebuilder Bags Bronze at Industry’s Most Prestigious Event

Fernham Homes has been awarded bronze in the coveted category of Best Small Housebuilder at the prestigious WhatHouse? Awards 2019. Presented this year by Britain’s most famous astronaut, Tim Peake; and comedian and television presenter, Dara O’Briain, the WhatHouse? Awards are widely considered the housebuilding industry’s most prestigious event.

The award, received by director Michael Canham alongside additional members of the Fernham team, marks the end of a successful year, which has seen the launch of an innovative bespoke homes scheme and the launch of four new sites, including Lockesley Chase in Orpington.

Judges praised the housebuilder for quality specifications throughout its developments, alongside the thoughtfulness of design: “It is clear the directors set the mood and the standard, passionate about product and specification, but also about developing their employees and building a respected brand in the south-east, with Fernham’s distinctive pink livery.”

“Its designs, although varied and bold, pay due respect to the local vernacular such as Wealden-style timber weatherboarding. Its homes range from one-bedroom apartments to five-bedroom houses, with attractive street scenes creating a strong sense of place.”

Michael Canham, Director of Fernham Homes comments: “Receiving bronze for Best Small Housebuilder at one of the most prominent awards in the new homes industry is a real privilege and we are delighted to have been chosen by the expert panel. Creating quality homes which sympathetically designed to fit in with local architecture is of pivotal importance to us, and we are incredibly proud to be recognised for our successes.”
