Builders who have created homes of outstanding quality have been honoured by NHBC in the first round of the 2015 Pride in the Job Awards.
450 site managers have been announced as winners in the awards – placing them at the very top of their profession.
The National House-Building Council’s Pride in the Job Awards – now in their 35th year – recognise the unique personal contribution site managers make in the creation of UK homes of outstanding quality.
The 450 individuals – selected from around 15,000 site managers working on NHBC-registered sites across the UK – have won either a Quality Award or Single Home Commendation, depending on their category.
Commenting on the importance of the Awards, Mike Quinton, Chief Executive of NHBC, said:
“For 35 years, our Pride in the Job Awards have played a pivotal role in NHBC’s work to raise standards across the industry through the celebration and sharing of best practice. Put simply, site managers that win an award are creating houses of an outstandingly high standard.”
“A Pride in the Job award is the highest industry accolade a site manager can receive. It represents success for the site manager, his team and associated trades as well providing a reputational boost for the building company. Most importantly, homeowners who buy a Pride in the Job award-winning home benefit from a high quality product.”
“It’s no surprise that Pride in the Job winning sites also have higher levels of customer satisfaction as these homes are without doubt among the best the UK has to offer.”
The winners have excelled in a comprehensive year-long judging process, assessed against stringent criteria defined by NHBC’s Technical Standards for building new homes; they are now shortlisted for regional titles which will be revealed in the autumn.
The regional champions will then go forward to contest the national Supreme Winner title in their category at the Pride in the Job Gala Final, taking place in London in January.
