Housebuilder Quinn Homes has scooped two top awards at a prestigious national event.
The firm, based in Bridge, near Canterbury, triumphed at the WhatHouse? Awards.
Presented at a gala event in a top London hotel, the company - a spin-off of Quinn Estates - was awarded Gold in the Best Small Housebuilder category, while its Eddington Park project in Herne Bay won Bronze in the Best Apartment Scheme category.
The awards were presented by Olympic cyclist Sir Chris Hoy and broadcaster Clare Balding.
The judges report stated: “Quinn Homes was born out of enterprising mixed-use specialist Quinn Estates and this Kent-based housebuilder is proving quite the progeny. Quinn does bespoke homes; it does restoration and conversion of historic buildings, but above all it is wedded to and engrained in its county community.
“Design is bold and daring, technology sustainable and meaningful, while Quinn’s local immersion extends to working with Kent colleges, supporting training and creating jobs. A worthy gold.”
Mark Quinn, CEO and chairman of Quinn Homes, added: “We are delighted to have won Best Small Housebuilder of the Year, especially as a new brand against such tough competition.
“To be acknowledged for our ambition, innovation and design, as well as for supporting the communities in which we build is a huge honour. We also feel extremely proud to be awarded Bronze in the Best Apartment Scheme category in recognition of the high-quality design and legacy of our Eddington Park project. It truly is an honour.”
