Matthew Whitman, Sustainability Manager at Galliford Try Partnerships London, said: "We are proud that Blackhorse Mills has achieved this HQM rating, recognising its excellence in quality across several areas. We look forward to delivering more high-quality homes that demonstrate our commitment to our customers and the Home Quality Mark's key areas. Our vision is to be leaders in the construction of a sustainable future."
