Jonathan Hale, Managing Director at Hale Construction, said: “We are delighted with this latest recognition. As a team, we know our work is consistently carried out to the highest standard, often exceeding client demand, but awards are a great way of showing our team their own value and of boosting staff morale

“Our staff has always been key to our success and we have always had a firm focus on recruiting the right personnel and retaining them, whether at management or apprentice level. To this end, we initiated a thorough and very successful apprenticeship scheme in the very early days, which has grown and become strengthened over the years. Daniel is a prime example of this, progressing from apprentice carpenter to a now award-winning Site Manager, through a winning combination of hard work and guidance.

“This is a very exciting time for Hale Construction and Hale Homes and we have enjoyed longstanding success at the LABC Awards and value the standards they have in place.”
