CHAS Compliancy and Over 50's Award

Larkfleet Homes can celebrate a double success after becoming compliant with the Contractors Health and Safety Assessment Scheme (CHAS) and winning an Over 50's Housing Award.

CHAS is established as the market leader for health and safety pre-qualification in the UK. It is a non-commercial scheme available to contractors that enables them to meet public and private sector organisation's health and safety standards.

After Larkfleet Homes applied for CHAS compliancy, assessors looked at its health and safety policy statement, health and safety guidelines and specific arrangements already in place.

Now Larkfleet Homes is CHAS approved, time and resources can be used more efficiently. Larkfleet Homes will also benefit from being part of a community of CHAS approved companies, working with other companies that meet the same high standards of health and safety approval.

FE Peacock, the construction arm of Larkfleet Group that combines traditional building skills with modern design and construction, has also been CHAS accredited. This demonstrates the high standards of health and safety in all areas of the company.

Larkfleet Homes has also won an Over 50s Housing Award as it was judged best in the 'Most Outstanding Developer' division in the UK this year.

The awards, sponsored by UK Over 50s Housing Weekly News, aim to give recognition to efforts to advance the profitability and surplus of all industry sectors and to those who lift and enhance customer experience and enjoyment through innovation.

Karl Hick, Larkfleet managing director, commented: "The CHAS compliancy and the Over 50s Award are great achievements for Larkfleet. They show we are constantly succeeding in all areas of the company, something that we are very proud of."

Larkfleet also recently won the Environmental Achievement Award at the Evening Telegraph Business Awards for its commitment to environmental sustainability.
