Deeley Group wins major regional award

A leading Midlands property, construction and development partner has been recognised with a major regional award.

Deeley Group, which is headquartered in Coventry, won Property and Construction Business of the Year at the CoventryLive and WarwickshireLive Business Awards 2022.

Eleanor Deeley, joint managing director of the firm, was on hand to collect the award in a ceremony held at Coombe Abbey Hotel – with people joining together to celebrate the best in business across the region.

The annual ceremony celebrates the region’s top businesses, entrepreneurs and organisations – with 12 different award categories.

Deeley Group was recognised for its successful last 12 months and the range of projects it has completed across the region, from Extra Care facilities and schools, to retail developments and affordable homes.

The Group posted a turnover of £46.3 million for the year to 30 April 2022, which is a rise of more than £10 million from the previous year.

On receiving the award, Deeley was also praised for 12 per cent of its workforce being apprentices, graduates or trainees, while its comprehensive work experience programme, which has given 780 hours of work experience and presentations of site visits to young people since 2020, was also praised.

Developments that have been completed in Coventry were also commended, including the 39-home affordable housing development in Wyken, which was delivered in partnership with Stonewater.

Other developments in the city also included an £8.3 million scheme which has seen the expansion of Ernesford Grange Community Academy and Riverbank Academy, with significant donations made to community projects in the area as part of the development.

Eleanor Deeley, joint managing director at Deeley Group, said: “Community is a core value of our business and we have always been committed to making Coventry and Warwickshire a better place for people to work and live.

“To be recognised in this way after more than 85 years as a business is fantastic and is great recognition of the work teams across our business are doing every day to produce results for our clients and positively impact the communities that we work in.

“We’ve had a very successful 12 months across the business and this is a great way to top it off.”
