Walter Thompson Win ‘Excellence Award’!

Golden Recognition for Walter Thompson

8th June 2023

Walter Thompson are proud to announce that we’ve been awarded the Premier Guarantee Excellence Award for 2023 in the ‘Commercial Development of the Year’ award category. This is in addition to the ‘Quality Recognition’ award previous won for the same Skipton project.

Premier Guarantee strive to work alongside developers and builders to raise the quality of construction. Their awards programmes are a way of giving back to developers and builders who are consistently producing high quality new homes. The Excellence Awards programme is made up of two different stages: Quality Recognition Awards and The Excellence Awards, which recognise the best developments, construction practises and workmanship each month throughout the year.

The award winning state-of-the-art development in Sackville Street, Skipton was built on the site of an old mill and overlooks the Leeds and Liverpool Canal. The Mill House will provide the highest standard of person-centred residential care to every client. As well as offering ‘five star’ luxury accommodation, the property is also located within a short distance of the town centre and local amenities.

The new development will have 86 bedrooms/suites, and will be the perfect choice for those seeking the very best care in beautiful, homely surroundings. In addition, there will be 8 beautifully appointed supported living apartments providing an exclusive quality of life for discerning elderly people who can no longer live by themselves, but want to maintain their lifestyle, individuality and independence.

A huge congratulations to everyone who has worked on this fantastic project.

ONE of the region’s largest construction companies is celebrating after winning a top national award.

Northallerton-based Walter Thompson Ltd was declared winner of the Most Considerate Site (£1m to £2.5m) category at this year’s prestigious Considerate Constructors Scheme’s National Site Awards.

The gold award was given in recognition on the Breckon Hill Primary School project in Middlesbrough, where the company completed an extension and refurbishment project.

The annual CCS awards recognise the highest levels of consideration and care shown by constructors towards their local neighbourhoods, the general public, their workforce and the environment. This year’s awards were held online in light of Covid restrictions.
