Bellway’s uncompromising approach to achieve the highest possible standard of house building has been recognised by the National House Building Council at their WestSide development in Brentford, TW8, with a Pride in the Job Quality Award for Senior Site Manager, Chandra Kancham. Running for more than three decades and reputably known as one of the industry’s most prestigious awards, Pride in the Job recognises the best site managers who achieve the finest possible standards of house building.
A Pride in the Job award is the top industry accolade a site manager can receive, and represents success for the whole team at WestSide, in achieving outstanding quality at every stage of the build of this ambitious development. Demonstrating excellent leadership, technical expertise, robust health and safety processes, Chandra has lead his team in such a way that the NHBC could not ignore the meticulous and consistent attention to detail and quality of workmanship by the whole team.
Chandra Kancham will now be put forward for the NHBC Pride in the Job Seal of Excellence Awards, which will be revealed in the Autumn.
WestSide is part of a comprehensive redevelopment of the former Alfa Laval complex on the corner of Great West Road and Ealing Road, in Brentford. There are 137 apartments available in a wide selection of layouts, arranged over three apartment buildings. The development will also include two brand new hotels, a car showroom and 4,680 sqm of office accommodation.
Speaking about the award, Chandra Kancham commented:
“I am very proud to receive a Pride in the Job Quality Award, which I accept on behalf of the whole team at WestSide, who have continually exceeded all expectations during this project.”
“It is an outstanding achievement to receive recognition from the NHBC, not just because of the reputation the award holds in within this industry, but also because it has shown that our hard work and dedication in bringing the new quality homes to this area hasn’t gone unnoticed.”
Rob Sapsford, Construction Director at Bellway North London comments:
“We are very proud of Chandra and his team at WestSide for achieving this great award as it most definitely reflects Bellway’s approach to creating new homes, which at every build stage, is carried out with extreme skill and care.”
“With this in mind, we will continue to demonstrate that a major redevelopment of this scale can be conceived and built to the highest standards, not just at WestSide but across all of our developments, by providing quality new homes for the local community.”
Situated in West London, WestSide offers all the benefits of contemporary city apartment living, with courtyard gardens and modern interiors. The majority of the apartments have their own private outdoor space in the form of a balcony or terrace and convenient underground parking, while the sleek open plan kitchen / living / dining areas are fitted with a range of integrated appliances.
Master bedrooms are a comfortable retreat with fitted wardrobes and an en-suite bathroom. The apartments provide eco-friendly technology and energy saving features, including underfloor heating, meaning lower utility bills for residents.
Brentford is perfectly situated between several desirable boroughs, making it an ideal location for exploring all the capital has to offer. The attractive district of Chiswick, with its wide High Road and bustling café culture, is just over a mile to the east, while cosmopolitan Ealing, home to The Broadway Shopping Centre, is to the north. The iconic and award-winning Chiswick Business Park is also nearby and plays host a wide range of world-class national and international businesses.
Residents of WestSide can escape the hustle and bustle of the city if they desire, with Kew Village located just over Kew Bridge. This quaint London village is the gateway to Kew’s famous Royal Botanic Gardens and also offers an eighteenth century horseshoe-shaped centre dotted with cafés, restaurants and specialist shops.
The development is conveniently close to the A4 and M4, whilst both Kew Bridge and Brentford train stations, with services to Clapham Junction and London Waterloo are equidistant from the apartments. Northfields and Boston Manor tube stations (Piccadilly line) are also within walking distance of the development and provide onward services to the city in less than 30 minutes.
