Site celebration at Woodgate, Pease Pottage

Topping out

This morning we held a topping out ceremony at our flagship development in Pease Pottage. A long-standing tradition amongst the construction community, it was a time to come together and reflect on the journey everyone on site had been a part of.

At Thakeham, we believe it is important to continue this tradition to acknowledge the hard work and commitment that it takes to produce such high quality, sustainable homes for future generations to thrive in. The ceremony brought everybody together who contributed to the site for bacon and sausage sandwiches, along with a speech from our CEO, Rob Boughton.
