Deeley Group named finalist for four awards

A Telford Extra Care scheme has been shortlisted for two national construction awards with its developer also in the running for two regional family business awards.

Deeley Group, which is headquartered in Coventry, is celebrating making the shortlist for four regional and industry awards.

Sandstone Court, a 70-bed scheme built by Deeley Construction for Housing 21 on Dawley Road in Telford, has been nominated for Outstanding Residential Development and Excellence in Sustainable Construction at the National Federation of Builders (NFB) Construction Awards of Excellence.

The three-storey Extra Care scheme, completed earlier this year to BREEAM ‘Very Good’ standard, is the third development which the firm has carried out for Housing 21.

The NFB Construction Awards of Excellence will be held on Thursday, November 7 in Nottingham.

Deeley Group has also received another double-shortlisting at the 2024 Midlands Family Business Awards, which celebrates family businesses across the East and West Midlands.

The company has been named as a finalist in two categories – Employer of the Year and Property & Construction Excellence.

The winners will be revealed in an award ceremony in Leicester on Thursday, October 3.

The firm has previously been named Family Business of the Year at the West Midlands Business Masters Awards.

Eleanor Deeley, Joint Managing Director at Deeley Group, said: “We’ve had a fantastic few years at Deeley Group and we’re proud to have been shortlisted for these four awards.

“The Extra Care scheme at Dawley Road is the latest we have completed with Housing 21 and illustrates our expertise in the retirement living sector and the success of our partnership approach.

“Last year we were named in the Business & Innovation Magazine’s 100 Great Places to Work. Our people are at the heart of everything we do, we are always looking at new ways to ensure our team is valued and supported, so it is great to be recognised as a finalist for Employer of the Year.

“We look forward to attending both award ceremonies to celebrate brilliant family businesses across the region and excellence in the construction sector.”
