The project team building Figbury Lodge, a brand-new nursing and dementia care home in Mitchell Road, Poole, were among employees recognised by locally-based construction contractor Stepnell at its Annual Awards.

David Roper, Tony Smith, Graeme Moffatt, Nicola Sawyer, William Goddard and Andy Heyting were named Team of the Year for their work on the 80-bedroom specialist care facility which Stepnell – based at Holton Heath Trading Park, Poole - is currently building for the Borough of Poole and which is set to open next year.

Other award winners in Stepnell’s South Coast region were materials buyer Matt Gunning (Trainee of the Year); Jason Osborne (Operative of the Year); Neil Barber (Project Team Employee of the Year) and Heidi Bucknall (Support Services Employee of the Year).

The construction of Brendoncare’s brand-new care home which opened this summer at Otterbourne Hill in Hampshire, was named regional Project of the Year, recognising the work of team members Martin Armstrong, Neil Barber, Mike Balcombe, Edward Nottage, Liam Wills and Matt Sargent. Bill McGrugan, Martin Hughes, Dave Cornell, Rebecca Baldock and Paul Shergold were Considerate Constructors Scheme Project of the Year winners.
Stepnell regional director Rob Speirs says: “These awards are a great showcase for the talented people who work across our business, and who ensure we continue to deliver high-quality buildings for our clients. I’m extremely pleased to see their expertise and commitment to excellence recognised.”
Stepnell’s Annual Awards were held at the Dallas Burston Polo Club events venue in Southam, Warwickshire.
