MALVERN-based building contractor Speller Metcalfe has picked up national awards for two of its most recent projects. The company on Enigma Business Park scored at the third gala awards of the National Federation of Builders in London, which recognised the best talent in the construction industry. Speller Metcalfe won the commitment to environment and sustainability award for a new build scheme at Spilsby, Lincolnshire for Western Power Distribution and was also highly commended in the new build of the year category for Blake’s Hill, a sustainable housing venture in Evesham, delivered in partnership with Rooftop Housing Group, which is being touted as an exemplar to housing associations looking to deliver the highest levels of sustainable construction in affordable housing.

NFB national chairman Paul Senior of Keepmoat said: “Speller Metcalfe represent all the hard work and effort that has been needed at every level of the industry in the past few years, to overcome barriers, to deal with the changing world of construction, and to think and act in new ways.”

The event was hosted by TV presenter and consumer affairs specialist Dominic Littlewood, star of Cowboy Builders, who added: "Congratulations to all the winners, it is nice to be presenting awards to the builders and associate companies who've done the job right.”
