Chestnut Homes, Lindum Group and Willmott Dixon were among some of the seven winners at last night’s new Property and Construction Awards 2017.
The awards, hosted by Lincolnshire Chamber of Commerce, welcomed over 300 people to The Engine Shed where guests were entertained by TV star and property expert Charlie Luxton.
Guests were greeted with a glass of fizz at the drinks reception before making their way into the main hall for live entertainment and a three course meal.
TV presenter Charlie Luxton then made his way onto the stage to talk about the fantastic construction and property work being achieved across Greater Lincolnshire, and the connection between the awards and Lincolnshire’s Chamber’s monthly property and construction networking forum.
Then it was over to the moment everyone had been waiting for.

This was the sector’s first award ceremony and it was a brilliant turnout which certainly paved the way for subsequent events.
The awards were supported by a group of construction and property professionals who formed the award’s Steering Group.
Zoe Summerfield, Chair of the Construction forum, steering group and Business Development Manager at Millwards spoke about the event saying:
“It has been a tremendous night and we’re incredibly happy to say it was a sell-out event. Charlie Luxton spoke wonderfully about the sector tonight and we couldn’t agree more that Lincolnshire is a very special place when it comes to Construction and property. From its heritage, to housing and contemporary style designs, we’re very proud of the sector for all it has achieved.
“I would like to say a massive congratulations to all the winners who we know have worked on many interesting and challenging projects across Greater Lincolnshire. I’d also like to thank the Engine Shed for having us, we couldn’t have picked a better location right in the heart of Lincoln City surrounded by some amazing construction work which is currently underway.
Simon Beardsley, Chief Executive at the Lincolnshire Chamber of Commerce also commented saying:
“This is something that myself and the rest of the Construction Steering Group have been working towards for almost five years and it’s a huge step for the sector here in Lincolnshire. It feels great to have had such huge interest from businesses across the county, and we’re so pleased they made it here this evening. Lincolnshire Chamber feel very privileged to have been such a huge part of this and we’re looking forward to what we will do next”.
Lincolnshire Chamber and Steering Group would also like to extend a huge thank you to all those who sponsored the event and helped make it such a success.
