Deeley Group has received a treble shortlisting at a leading regional property awards.
Insider’s Midlands Residential Property Awards is now in its sixth year and Deeley Group is in the running for three of the 15 categories available.
The £3.9 million development of the Coal Yard Road in Ryton-in-Dunsmore has been shortlisted in two categories – Small Residential Project of the Year and Residential Regeneration Project of the year.
The project was delivered in partnership with Platform Housing, Rugby Borough Council and Homes England.
It was formerly a coal yard and the brownfield site is now home to 21 affordable properties. The shortlist also sees Platform Housing nominated for the Social Housing award.
Deeley Group has also been shortlisted in the Skills & Training Scheme of the Year category.
This is for the delivery of the training scheme whereby it regularly promotes the integration of trainees into all departments of the business including site management, quantity surveying, administration, accounting and marketing.
Currently 16 per cent of its workforce is in the trainee programme or undergoing further education.
Peter Deeley, Managing Director of the Deeley Group, was named Property Personality of the Year at the awards in 2012.
He said: “We are delighted to have been shortlisted in three categories for the 2021 Insider Midlands Residential Property Awards.
“The Coal Yard development at Ryton-on-Dunsmore demonstrates the value you can create from a redundant brownfield site through a regeneration project.
“It meets regional priorities for ‘brownfield first’ development and we are continuing this with our latest affordable housing development in Wyken, Coventry, with Stonewater.
“Our commitment to training and developing staff is something we are immensely proud of at the Deeley Group, so we are very pleased that our training scheme has also received recognition by being shortlisted this year.”
The event has secured 77 submissions from 46 organisations, compared to last year’s 60 entries.
The winners will be announced on Thursday, July 22 at The Eastside Rooms in Birmingham.
