Goodmores, Exmouth, is an official NHBC award winner!

The team at 3West have worked hard to prove they are the best in the business and are proud to announce their Site Manager, Ian Edgcumbe recently won the Quality Award in the National House Building Council (NHBC) Pride in the Jobs Awards 2023.

Running for 43 years, the accolade, which is awarded by the UK’s leading new homes warranty and insurance provider, is the most highly regarded in the house-building industry and a prestigious benchmark for exceptional site managers. With only 444 winners selected out of over 8,000 entrants across the UK, the recipients are among the country’s best house builders.

Judging for the awards is rigorous, with the current competition beginning in July last year. Each site manager is assessed across six key areas: consistency, attention to detail, leadership, interpretation of drawings and specifications, technical expertise and health and safety.

Thousands of site inspections and meticulous scoring and verifications have taken place to decide the winning site managers. Ian will now go on to compete for Seal of Excellence and Regional Awards in the autumn, with the national Supreme Award winners unveiled in January 2024. “I’m over the moon to win this highly sought-after award and just goes to show the hard work myself and the team are putting into these new homes is paying off. I know it’s my name on the award, but it couldn’t have been achieved without a great team around me. The dedication and willingness to go above and beyond is never taken for granted – thank you” says Ian.

Goodmores is 3West’s first development in Exmouth, with new sites acquired in Lympstone, Clyst St Mary and Woodbury. All sites will be developed to the highest of standards and will provide gorgeous new homes to Devon families.

“We are committed to building great homes, in fantastic locations and putting customers at the heart of everything we do. Experience has shown us that they’re the things that matter most to customers, which means they’re the things that matter most to us.” Managing Director, Colin Palmer says. “As a privately owned company we can focus our time and attention on customer experience, supply chain and local communities. We are so lucky to have such an incredible team working hard to provide these much-needed homes. Congratulations to Ian and the team – we are so proud!”

Why buy a new build home?

When choosing a new home, whether it’s your first home or you’re moving on, there are many factors to consider. A pivotal decision will be whether to buy a new build home or an older property.

Why buy a new build home?

Energy-efficient homes

The energy efficiency of new build homes means you can save on your annual energy bills compared to living in an older house. The Home Builders Federation (HBF) ‘Watt a Save‘ report found:

  • New build houses are so energy efficient you could save more than £3,100 on your annual energy bills.
  • 85% of new builds have an A or B EPC rating. Just 4% of older properties achieve the same energy-efficiency grade.
  • And based on HBF analysis of EPC ratings, buyers of new build homes could save more than £2,500 a year on average on their energy bills when the Energy Price Guarantee (EPG) increases on 1 April 2023.

The energy-efficiency measures in our developments include:

  • High-grade UPVC windows
  • High levels of insulation
  • Energy-efficient boilers with smart controls
  • Low-energy LED lighting

Built for now

New build homes are built to modern standards, saving homeowners time and money on costly upgrade works. Bringing a second-hand property up to the same specification as a new build could require major upgrade works, such as rewiring, rendering and refitting windows and doors.

On top of the cost, upgrade works can be disruptive and may take a long time making home life uncomfortable.

HBF’s 2023 research into the costs to upgrade a 3-bed semi-detached house found:

  • Upgrading an old property to modern standards could cost more than £70,000.

Peace of mind guarantees

Buying schemes and incentives are available to help you buy your new home, and you can benefit from the peace of mind of warranties and guarantees.

We offer several buying schemes to help you purchase one of our new homes. These include:

  • Key Worker, Armed Forces & Emergency Services Discount Schemes
  • Recommend a Friend Discount
  • Part Exchange
  • Assisted Move

All our new build homes at Goodmores come with an NHBC 10-Year Buildmark Warranty. And for additional peace of mind, we also provide a 2-year Customer Care Warranty AND British Gas Homecare Emergency Cover for 12 months.

If you’d like to enjoy all the benefits of a new build home, browse our available properties at Goodmores in Exmouth or contact us for more information.

Part exchange available

If you’d like to buy a new 3West home and have a house to sell, part exchange could be the ideal solution.*

Part exchange takes away the stress and uncertainty of selling your current property on the open market and offers you a quick, guaranteed property sale.

If your current property qualifies, we’ll make you an offer on your existing home based on independent valuations. And if you’re happy to accept the offer, we’ll agree on a completion date with you and manage the sale through to completion.

Benefits of part exchange

No estate agent fees

With part exchange, there are no estate agent fees to pay on the sale of your home, which reduces the cost of your move.


You won’t be in a chain, so you won’t have to worry about other people pulling out of their purchase and possibly losing your new home.

Guaranteed sale

Part exchange offers you a guaranteed sale. This eliminates all of the uncertainty of selling a property and enables you to secure the plot of your choice.

Quick sale

Part exchange enables you to complete the sale of your current property as soon as your new home is ready. There’s no hanging around waiting for your property to sell on the open market.

Part exchange could provide a quick, simple and stress-free move.

To find out if your home is available for part exchange and see which plots qualify for the scheme, please contact us on 01395 874580 or email us.
