Friday 19th November was a night of celebration for the team at Dandara as the regions scooped two awards at the prestigious WhatHouse? Awards – dubbed the Oscars of the housebuilding industry. The awards were determined by an expert panel of judges, who commended Dandara for its schemes in Kent and Jersey, cementing it as one of the best housebuilders in the country.
The WhatHouse? Awards, now in its 41st year, commends customer-focused housebuilders, who have continued to deliver the best new homes in Britain despite the unprecedented challenges of the past year.
The housebuilders 1887 The Pantiles development in Tunbridge Wells, Kent beat hundreds of other schemes across the country and was commended a ‘Silver Winner’ for Best Apartment Scheme. The innovative architecture of 1887 The Pantiles perfectly demonstrates how a large building can minimise its impact on the surrounding area through the clever use of interlinked but distinct elements, allowing it to blend beautifully into an attractive street setting. As well as providing luxurious apartments, the quality development includes community and office space and has brought considerable improvements to the public realm.
La Rochelle in St Peter, Jersey also scooped the silver prize for Best Luxury House. It’s no surprise that this exclusive collection of homes was recognised given their luxurious design; combining the very best of traditional and contemporary architecture.
Chris Harris, Managing Director at Dandara, commented: “We had a wonderful night celebrating the success of so many of our development amongst industry friends and colleagues. We’re so proud of our homes, and it was an honour to be recognised by WhatHouse to be building some of the best new homes in the country. The whole team is so pleased that all of our hard work has been recognised in this way and it’s fantastic to end the year on such a high.”
