Hopkins Homes named Best Medium Housebuilder

 Now in its 36th year, the WhatHouse? Awards is the biggest, most prestigious event for the UK's new homes builders and Hopkins Homes faced strong competition from across the entire nation to be crowned Best Medium Housebuilder 2017.

Shortlisted in two categories, Hopkins Homes scooped the Gold award for Best Medium Housebuilder and a Silver award for their Prospect Place development in Framlingham as part of the Best Regeneration Project category.

Speaking of the news James Hopkins, Executive Chairman of Hopkins Homes said: "We are all absolutely delighted to be named the Best Medium Housebuilder and to win a second award for our development in Framlingham. The WhatHouse? Awards are the UK industry's most prestigious and widely recognised and to win a Gold and Silver in these categories is a fantastic achievement."

The judging panel highlighted Hopkins Homes' reputation for keeping design central to their ethos, saying that the company:..."builds houses with pretty faces that doff the cap to the vernacular, without tumbling into pastiche; enhancing communities too, be it bold new developments or sensitive, restorative work on brownfield sites."

James Hopkins continued: "Design has always been at the heart of our company and I am thrilled that the hard work of everyone at the Hopkins Group has been recognised by the judging panel. The whole team is committed to achieving the very highest standards in everything we do and these awards are testament to that".

The award comes at the end of an impressive year for Hopkins Homes which has seen the Suffolk-based developer expand further into Cambridgeshire and achieve a record number of completions. To celebrate the imminent sale of its 5,000th home, the company also recently announced the expansion of its charitable fund. This will see them distribute £500,000 to charities based in Suffolk, Norfolk and Cambridgeshire over the next five years. As part of this, £10,000 per year as been allocated to the conservation of war memorials across the region.
