Ahmet Ibrahim at Hills Homes Southside Farm developmentA site manager for house developer Hills Homes has been shortlisted for a West of England LABC Building Excellence Award.

Ahmet Ibrahim is hoping to win the 'LABC Construction professional of the year – Residential' award, having been nominated by the LABC for his work at Hills Homes’ Southside Farm development in Corston near Malmesbury.

The award “recognises a specific person that has stood out by going above and beyond the call of duty to ensure an outstanding working relationship with the local authority and commitment to excellent buildings.”

Ahmet was delighted to hear he had been shortlisted and said: “I was proud to learn that LABC nominated me for an award.

"It’s gratifying to know that all the work and effort put into managing a site at this level has been recognised by industry professionals. I am very grateful and would like to thank my colleagues and all the skilled trades people on site who continue to produce high quality finished homes which I am proud to manage.

Nick King, Group director of Hills Homes said: “It is great news that the quality of our work has been recognised again by the LABC and we have our fingers crossed for Ahmet to win the award – good luck Ahmet!”

Ahmet was shortlisted for an LABC Residential Site Agent of the Year award in 2016, which saw Hills Homes win three LABC awards including ‘Highly Commended best small new housing development’ and ‘Best partnership with a local Authority building control team’.

The awards ceremony will take place on Friday, July 12.
