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 process:
- 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 our Head of Technical Operations and a Site Recognition Award is provided each month to those who have achieved a consistently high average rating. Throughout the year, developers who achieve the highest ratings across all elements of the build process will be in the running to receive 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:
