Nominator: Amy Nettleship, Risk Management Surveyor
What is it? Almost 50-acre historic site featuring 155 homes
Website: The Parklands
Developer: Jackson and Jackson
Site Manager: Miles Jackson
“The Parklands is such a lovely site. It is set within woodland and although the properties are new, their appearance has so much character. Two houses on the site even have thatched roofs which has been a great learning curve for me - it is great to work on something completely different to the norm.
"Sudbrooke Holme (built in 1780) used to lie on the site land but was demolished in 1928. It was a stunning country mansion. The plans are for Sudbrooke Holme to be re-built to its former glory as an over-55s complex. This will be an amazing project to be involved in and will bring some destroyed history back to life.
"The site management team are so professional and the site manager always wants to ensure that everything is built to a very high standard. The site is very tidy and well-managed and it is a pleasure to visit and to work with them.”
“Amy, from Premier Guarantee continues, to be a consummate professional and plays a vital role in the parklands project. Her knowledge and fastidious approach have earned her much respect on the site from management and trades alike.
“Amy is always happy to answer any questions and to discuss possible solutions to problems. Her approachable, sunny demeanour makes her a pleasure to work with I look forward to our ongoing collaboration with Amy and Premier Guarantee.
“If I had to choose only one thing that I am most proud about the project, it would have to be the team effort. It would be remiss of me to single out one individual’s actions or input that has been responsible for the success of the site. Rather, it has been the continued hard work and dedication of every person involved. From labourers to trades to management, everyone has played an equally important part and, therefore, deserves equal praise.”
