Clarkson Evans named as national contractor of the year for Bovis Homes

South West electrical contractor Clarkson Evans has been named both regional and national contractor of the year by UK housebuilder Bovis Homes Group Plc.

Clarkson Evans has worked with Bovis for more than 30 years, wiring a wide range of homes, from two-bed starter properties to large six-bed family homes, across the housebuilder's regional network.

The electrical contractor has been trusted to wire some of Bovis Homes' landmark developments including the Sherford development, being built on the outskirts of Plymouth, which it is anticipated will take 20 years to complete and will eventually comprise of 5,500 homes, four schools, community facilities and a business quarter.

"Bovis Homes has been an important customer of ours since Clarkson Evans was first established in the early eighties. We share the company's vision and like them we take pride in what we do and demand high standards of our electrical teams," said managing director Nathan Evans, who accepted the award from Bovis Homes' chief executive Greg Fitzgerald (pictured above).

"Being presented with the contractor of the year award is a huge pat on the back for our site-based electricians and we'll make sure that all of them are personally thanked for their efforts," added Nathan.

Greg Fitzgerald, chief executive at Bovis Homes Group Plc said: "Working with contractors like Clarkson Evans is all part of our drive to focus on building high quality homes and we're delighted to name the company as our contractor of the year."

Clarkson Evans specialises in wiring new homes for the UK's leading housebuilders, wiring 19,000 new properties in England and Wales last year.

In total Clarkson Evans employs more than 800 staff and operates across much of southern England, the Midlands and South Wales.
