Home Builder Awards 2017

Build Home Builder Awards 2017 20 ruelove Property and Construction Ltd aim to create quality, bespoke homes that are luxurious and modern, with a twist of the traditional. Barrie explains that the firm wants to create spacious properties which allow for lots of natural light, an attribute which is highly desired. “We achieve this by investing a lot of time and effort into the initial design stage, which is a collaborative approach between our in-house architects and our sales team. We also ensure we use five or more varying house types across each development, to ensure we create a distinctive look on each site. We don’t want all houses to be the same and boring! “As a firm, we are proud to employ high quality tradesmen, some of whom have been with the business for over 20 years; they know the high standards we expect to see and take great pride in their work. We also invest money in quality materials, which is important for the finished look of a property. “One of our most recent projects was a high end executive development, containing luxury detached bungalows and houses with up to five bedrooms. We believe that we have exceeded our own expectations on this project, and are very proud of the finished product. One of the key challenges we faced on this project was providing high quality properties at a good price. Also, by completing a small executive development in a well-established area, we needed to ensure that we were sympathetic to our surroundings and considerate of this when building, to ensure we could still produce what we wanted whilst also integrating well into the surrounding area and managing existing resident’s expectations.” “In order to be able to do this, we utilise a very thorough design process. In the initial design stage, we ensure that our projects will blend into the surrounding area, will not be overcrowded and will provide sufficient parking that accommodates for modern family living. We ensure there is consistent communication between the site and our office by holding regular progress meetings, organising a weekly site visit from the sales department to check on progress, and holding meetings with customers to understand their choices. All of this is held together by successful coordination of supplies and timelines, which leads to correct detailing throughout, thus ensuring delivery of the end product.” Best Residential Development Company - East Midlands Truelove Property and Construction Ltd is a family run business, boasting 40 years’ experience in building new homes across Lincolnshire, North Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire. The firm prides itself on creating quality properties with bespoke and distinctive finishes that are tailored to each customer, as Barrie Truelove, Director and Owner explains. T HB170011 Company: Truelove Property & Construction Name: Barrie Truelove (Director and Owner) Email: [email protected] for general enquiries, Sales: Sophie Barrett- [email protected] Web Address: www.trueloveproperty.co.uk Address: 4a Eastgate, Lincoln, LN2 1QA Telephone: 01522 526979 Barrie is very proud of the work completed by his firm and notes that a number of Truelove’s ‘standard’ housing features are classed as extras by other firms. “We think about what makes a house functional, meaning our customers aren’t forced to spend lots on extras. This includes a number of convenient arrangements, such as power to garages and outside lighting, meaning our customers do not have to worry about this after moving in. We pride ourselves on our attention to detail, bespoke features and brick work in each house design, ensuring each of our properties are individually designed and several house types are included to suit their location. “Technology is playing an increasingly important role in our sector, and we are ensuring that we keep pace with this. Our in-house architects use the most recent and up to date software for the design and continual improvement of our homes, and we use social media and ad reach campaigns to maximise our exposure and keep up to date and current in the market place. We are now also beginning to use drones and 360 virtual tour technology on our sites for layouts, and also marketing purposes.” Truelove Property and Construction currently have active sites in North Lincolnshire, and Barrie explains that the aim of the firm is to get into the market in Hull, across the bridge. “With Hulls regeneration and the wind turbines, there is a huge need for housing in the area which will only keep growing, and we hope to be able to capitalise on this. We have found that employment in specific areas is a big influence on where and what we build; going forward, we want to be affordable and the “go to” company for new developments. “As we look to the future, we are focusing on extending our skills over to Nottinghamshire, with a gateway site on the outskirts of Nottingham City centre. This has direct links from the site straight into the heart of Nottingham, for the perfect commute. We also have several other well located sites in our upcoming plans, where we are looking to develop higher end sites, with properties valued at £500,000 and £1,000,000. We want to explore this market and continue to develop our skill set and profile in the industry.”
