Sketchley Gardens site and sales team

A Warwickshire project manager from local housebuilder Crest Nicholson has received a prestigious national accolade. Mick Wale, who manages the Sketchley Gardens development in Nuneaton, received a Quality Recognition Award from the Premier Guarantee's Excellence Awards.


The award recognises construction professionals who consistently deliver quality work and site management on their developments, ensuring that high quality homes are produced. Winners are announced each month throughout the year, culminating in an annual event held to recognise winners’ achievements. At the event, people from different businesses within the industry come together to celebrate their success, learn more from each other and discuss plans for the future.


Mick and the team at Sketchley Gardens were recognised for the outstanding work they do at the development in Nuneaton. The high standards of management, health and safety considerations and site tidiness were all specifically commended in the award.


Mick Wale, Project Manager for Crest Nicholson’s Sketchley Gardens development, says: “We are pleased to receive this award. Although I have been recognised, it really is a team effort by all of our colleagues at Sketchley Gardens who are dedicated to delivering quality homes in a new community for the local area. Everyone takes pride in the work that we do to provide a smooth journey for buyers during the home moving process, right from our very first day on site.”


Tim Brickley, Managing Director at Crest Nicholson Midlands, adds: “Congratulations to Mick and everyone at Sketchley Gardens. This award win highlights their tireless commitment to the community in Nuneaton, demonstrating the skills and great leadership amongst the team. The site award win is a tribute to the quality of not only Sketchley Gardens, but Crest Nicholson’s wider developments and workforce across the Midlands and beyond, meaning homebuyers can be confident they are purchasing homes of the highest standard.”
