Norwich-based affordable housing developer and regeneration specialist Lovell has been presented with a Gold Medal award by national safety charity the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) in recognition of the company’s outstanding safety approach.

The Gold Medal marks Lovell’s achievement of consecutive RoSPA Gold Awards over the past eight years for its exceptional health and safety management systems at its developments across East Anglia. Lovell is based locally in Thorpe Road, Norwich.

RoSPA awards manager David Rawlins says: “The RoSPA awards encourage the raising of occupational health and safety standards across the board. Organisations such as Lovell contribute to a collective raising of the bar for other organisations to aspire to and we offer them our congratulations.”

Lovell regional director Tony Tann adds: “This award is a tribute to the hard work and expertise of the company’s health and safety professionals, site teams, staff and subcontractor partners and their dedication to achieving the very highest safety standards across all our developments.”

The Gold Medal award was presented in a ceremony at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel.

Current Lovell schemes in East Anglia include a major housing renewal programme in King’s Lynn where Lovell is working on Freebridge Community Housing’s £30 million regeneration scheme to transform the Hillington Square estate. In Suffolk, Lovell recently started demolition at Stowmarket and Woolpit where it will replace pre-cast concrete properties with 39 new affordable homes for Orbit Homes. The company is also building a new community centre and 20 homes through a £2.7 million project, again for Orbit Homes, in Mildenhall, Suffolk.
