Redrow Thames Valley invites online gamers to digitally recreate one of its homes or developments as part of a community competition.

The housebuilding firm, currently working at Badbury Park, Homington Avenue, has lauched its competition with three categories for the public to enter before Friday 27 August.

The first group is for ages 4-11, the second is 12-16 and the third, 16 and over. 

There are many games that can be used for the home designing. Examples listed by Redrow; Minecraft, The Sims, Roblox or Animal Crossing. The firm suggests a visit to its development in Badbury Park might help inspire those who wish to enter the competition.

Digital builders can apply at www.redrow.co.uk/recreateredrow and email and image or video of their home design to the relevant age category. Gamers can also enter and share their designs on social media tagging @Redrow on Twitter, @Redrowhomes on Instagram, or commenting on the Facebook competition post along with #RecreateRedrow.

Sales Director at Redrow Thames Valley, Sarah Boyce, said: “As a builder committed to giving people a better way to live, our homes and communities are well-known for the distinctive character and quality they offer our customers.

“Here at Redrow, we understand that our business is only as good as its people. We value those that make us a success, and are committed to nurturing the next generation of talent.

“Gaming is a hobby that can sometimes get a bad reputation, yet we know that there are so many talented people out there with exceptional digital ability and a fantastic eye for detail, two skills that are really important in housebuilding. We recognise that this talent can, and should be nurtured and championed, which is why we’re keen to encourage gamers to channel this interest positively, and consider a career in the construction industry.

“From architecture, to bringing visions to life through bricklaying, there really is a career for everyone at Redrow.”

The prizes for the competition include children's art vouchers, an MSI Curved Gaming Monitor, Razer Streamer and broadcast bundle, as well as the chance to secure a work placement with the Redrow Thames Valley team. 

Each entry will be reviewed by an expert panel of judges, including YouTube gaming star Clare Siobhan, as well as Group Customer and Marketing Director Matt Grayson, Group Master Planning Director Kevin Parker, Group Design and Technical Director Stuart Norton, and Head of Talent Anna Milne.
