We are delighted to announce that Ecosafe Group has been named a finalist in two distinguished categories at the 2023 Affordable Housing Awards: Contractor of the Year and Homebuilder of the Year - Independent. This prestigious acknowledgment highlights Ecosafe Group's exceptional contributions to affordable housing, particularly through impactful projects with BCP Council and Pivotal Homes.
Contractor of the Year: Transforming Communities with BCP Council
Ecosafe Group’s collaboration with BCP Council has been instrumental in rejuvenating the Poole neighbourhood. Our comprehensive involvement spans contracts in kitchens, bathrooms, and gas servicing, as well as emergency works and responsive services such as a damp and mould pilot, Roof repairs, passive fire protection, and support for BCP's sustainability goals through renewable source installations.
Daniel Hacker, representing BCP Council, praised Ecosafe Group's efforts stating“BCP have worked successfully with Ecosafe Group, to deliver different aspects of our repairs to our council housing stock within the Poole neighbourhood. Delivering kitchen refurbishments, bathroom refurbishments with happy residents and a high satisfaction to the level of the workmanship and customer experience. The Gas servicing contractor and boiler replacement contract works efficiently and compliantly to ensure BCP residents remain safe. The ‘can do’ attitude applied by Ecosafe Group is a real bonus to the high customer service levels our residents experience.”
Homebuilder of the Year - Independent: Transforming a Derelict Site for Pivotal Homes
Ecosafe Group's recognition as Homebuilder of the Year - Independent stems from our transformative collaboration with Pivotal Homes on a Plymouth-based project. This initiative involved the complete renovation of a derelict social club into 12 one-bedroom flats.
Joy Kingsbury, CEO of Pivotal Homes, an organisation that designs bespoke homes for individuals often excluded from mainstream housing projects, praised Ecosafe Group's exemplary work:
"Ecosafe Group has consistently demonstrated flexibility in their approach, contributing innovative ideas to our projects, and ensuring the highest quality in their builds. They maintain transparency and pride themselves in the homes they construct, which aligns perfectly with Pivotal's mission to provide housing solutions for underserved communities. We hope to work in partnership with Ecosafe Group to deliver more affordable homes across the Southwest."
Ecosafe Group is deeply honoured by the dual finalist status and commenting on the award nomination, Adam Marston, Director of Ecosafe Group, stated, "We are both humbled and
thrilled to be finalists for these prestigious awards. Our partnership with Pivotal Homes and BCP Council exemplifies our commitment to providing high-quality, affordable housing solutions to communities in the Southwest and beyond."
