All you need to know

New for 2020, developers who consistently achieve a high average rating for their development will be recognised with a Site Recognition Award. Our LABC Warranty Risk Management Surveyors will determine a developer’s rating during their site inspection visits, where scores are based on the following elements of the build:

- General Cooperation
- Health & Safety
- Site Tidiness
- Standard of Site Management*
- Standard of Workmanship*

* A higher score in these areas will have a greater impact on the average score.

Developments put forward are ratified by Regional Surveying Managers and a Site Recognition Award is provided each month to those who have achieved a consistently high average rating. Throughout the year, those developers who achieve the highest ratings across all elements of the build process will be in the running for The Bricks prestigious award trophy.

LABC Warranty Risk Management Surveyors are responsible for scoring developments during their site inspection visits based on certain elements of the build process and providing developments meet the following criteria:

1: A site can only be put forward for an award once in any 6 month period.

2: Plots on a site must be at least first floor level to be considered for an award.

3: All apartment blocks and commercial developments must be at least 50% completed.

4: Developments of all sizes (excluding self-builds) can be considered providing it is covered by LABC Warranty and it has been inspected across most stages of the build by LABC Warranty Risk Management Surveyors.

Each development that is scored on site should display a high standard in technical competency and build quality as well as:

- Good site management and leadership
- Compliance with technical standards
- Permanent supervision on site
- A high level of organisational and customer service skills shown by site/project managers
