Estates Gazette Awards 2015!
We’re all waiting (with bated breath) the release of the new Absolutely Fabulous film next year and last night Joanna Lumley continued to whet our appetites as she hosted the Estates Gazette Awards 2015.
The Ab Fab star, who is no stranger to the world of development in London thanks to her Garden Bridge idea which is now becoming a realisation, looked as glamourous as ever as she announced the winners of the awards to the 850–strong audience in the Grand Ballroom of the London Hilton on Park Lane.
Following a comical intro by actor Miles Jupp, the actress puckered up for each winner that stepped up on stage to receive their accolade; it was the icing on the cake for our client Berkeley Homes which picked up the gongs for both its categories – Residential Company of the Year and, for the second year running, National Company of the Year.
Reading an excerpt from the judge’s report, ‘Voice from above’ John Briggs – who helped Joanna announce the winners, said of Berkeley’s Residential Company of the Year Win: “Berkeley Group were the judge’s outright favourite in this category. The last 12 months have shown the company maintaining a fantastic turnover and profit growth, further establishing their reputation as providers of great quality work and service. Employing 12,000 people and providing 10% of London’s affordable housing they also have a new joint venture in the pipeline that is sure to deliver future growth. ‘Berkeley, in my opinion wins the nomination by far’ said one of the judges.”
