Building excellence

A BUILDING firm from Shiplake is in the running for a national accolade.

A BUILDING firm from Shiplake is in the running for a national accolade.

Jamie Smith Estates has been nominated for a building excellence award by its surveyor Premier Guarantee, which provides the 10-year warranties on all its developments.

It is one of only three companies in the country to reach the final round of the scheme, which is run by trade body Local Authority Building Control.

The awards ceremony will take place in London on November 8.

Inspectors scored the company highly for a new house it was building in Lashbrook Road, where its offices also are.



Owner Jamie Smith said: “We were over the moon when we heard we had got through.

“The last time the surveyor came round it was unannounced and on a really wet, miserable day and there was mud everywhere so we thought we’d blown our chances. However, he was obviously able to see through all that.

“Just making it to the final is a great achievement in itself.”
