FRANCIS Jackson Homes have just been awarded the prestigious Sunday Times BuildQuality Award for their exceptional Walled and Secret Garden development at Potterspury, just outside Milton Keynes.

The Olney-based house builder was presented was the award by Channel 4’s ‘Restoration Man’ George Clarke at a glittering dinner in London’s Grosvenor Square, when Francis Jackson Homes were said to be “head and shoulders above the rest in their category”. The specialist house builder outperformed leading developers to claim the UK accolade, which recognises exceptional build quality.

Nick Jackson, managing director of the award-winning family-owned company, said: “The Sunday Times BuildQuality 2012 Award is a highly regarded accolade and we are extremely proud to be recognised in this way. I am particularly pleased a small local company has won such an illustrious national award ahead of all the others in the UK. All our staff, sub-contractors, selling agents and consultants are based in and around Milton Keynes and should all be proud of what we have collectively achieved.”

Paul Thomas, director at Elevation New Homes in Milton Keynes, has worked with Francis Jackson Homes for over 25 years and was thrilled to be part of the winning team.

“As long as I have been working in Milton Keynes, Francis Jackson Homes have always had a fantastic reputation for quality and it is great for a local firm, employing local trades, to win such a high profile national award.”

The Sunday Times British Homes Awards invited entries from house builders, developers, housing associations, architects and interior designers within 11 categories.

“These are the Rolls-Royce of awards – the ultimate accolade,” says Mike Gazzard, Hon FRIBA Awards Director. “To be eligible for an award, the house builder or developer must have already received industry recognition. These awards acknowledge the best of the best.”

In 2011 Francis Jackson Homes won LABC Warranty Development of the Year for Potterspury and was crowned Overall Developer of the Year.
