The National House-Building Council has announced the names of its first round winners in its annual Pride in the Job awards.
Chris Meadows who works for Bellway Homes won for work on Juniper Walk, Stowmarket; Steve George of Landex Living for work on The Old Auction Yard, Haughley; Ralph Mallott of Crest Nicholson Eastern for work on Kings Warren, Red Lodge, Jamie Howe of Hopkins Homes for work on Vinefields, Bury St Edmunds, and Ian Jones of Hopkins Homes for work on St Andrews Place, Thetford, have made the final 450 shortlisted from 13,000 entrants.
Richard Hartshorn, Regional Director for NHBC, the UK’s leading standards setter and warranty provider for new UK homes, said:“Winning a Pride in the Job Quality Award is a major achievement for any site manager.
“For over three decades, Pride in the Job has been a foundation of NHBC’s work to improve housing standards, encouraging best practice on site.
“The homes our Quality Award winners have built are without doubt among the best in the UK.”
The winners were shortlisted from all site managers working on NHBC-registered sites, having excelled in a comprehensive year-long judging process, assessed against the stringent criteria defined by NHBC’s technical Standards for building new homes.
An NHBC spokesman said site managers are uniquely positioned to influence the quality of a build, being responsible for a project from start to finish.
Regional winners will be announced at ceremonies in the autumn, and will then progress to the Gala Final in London in January.
