Countryside Properties has been awarded one of the industry's highest accolades. The Group's Bristol based Residential division has won the Zurich Customer First award for Best Volume Housebuilder 2002 for the South West Region.

Gary Freeman, Managing Director for Countryside Properties' Residential Division, comments, "We are delighted with this prestigious award for Best Volume Housebuilder. Judging is based on feedback reports from the homeowners themselves so it means a great deal to everyone here at Countryside Properties. The Firs, our sell-out development in Wedal Road, Cardiff was also voted best site, which is very encouraging."

"There is a great demand amongst today's purchasers for good quality homes that are spacious, highly specified and designed to enhance the landscape in which they sit, and it is good to know that we are achieving this and being recognised for it."

The Zurich Awards were set up in 2000 to recognise the high standards of build quality and customer care within the Housebuilding industry. Martin Horsler, Manager of Zurich Insurance Building Guarantees, explains, "The Zurich awards, now in their third year, are recognised as a good indication of the standards of the housebuilder. As the awards are judged on 50% build quality and 50% customer care, there are no areas of the development process left unturned and of, course, it is the opinions of the purchasers that really matter."

He continues, "Countryside Properties is an established company with an excellent reputation with both the general public and the housebuilding industry, so it came as no surprise that they were awarded Best Volume Housebuilder. It is an award they can be very proud of and I hope it will encourage them to continue doing what they do best…building top quality homes."
