Wigley has been named Property and Construction Business of the Year

The company was one of 30 finalists in 11 categories that celebrated the finest businesses, entrepreneurs and organisations in Coventry and Warwickshire.

Over the past year, The Wigley Group has completed the first phase of the regeneration of the site of the former Daimler car factory in Coventry, with the major refurbishment of the powerhouse building into a £2.4million creative hub.

Other significant projects completed include the high-performance training complex in Henley-in-Arden for Wasps Rugby Club, the purpose-built Red Kangaroo trampoline park in Exhall, Coventry, and the first phase of improvements at Ashton Lodge Country House in Warwickshire, an Edwardian property that is now run as a wedding venue.

Wigley has also sealed two seven-figure commercial property deals and carried out its own internal reorganisation with all of the newly created roles filled through internal promotions while previous participants of its graduate and placement schemes have been given permanent jobs.

A £10,000 annual community fund to support people living around its HQ has been launched, and the four-year sponsorship of former paratrooper Jaco van Gass culminated in the cyclist winning two gold medals and a bronze medal at the Paralympic Games.

The Coventry Live Awards are run in conjunction with the Coventry Telegraph and Business Live.

James Davies, Chief Executive of Wigley, said: “It has been very much foot to the floor for our businesses during the pandemic, and this award is great recognition of the work all of our teams have done in what have at times been very challenging circumstances.

“This is an exciting time as we continue to adapt in order to drive the growth that we have seen in recent years.”
