Winners of NHBC’s Pride in the Job 2016 awards have been honoured for their dedication to building homes of outstanding quality in the first round of the competition.
NHBC (National House-Building Council), the UK’s leading home warranty and insurance provider, has revealed the names of the Quality Award winners – the UK’s 445 best site managers, placing them at the very top of their profession.
Now in its 36th year – Pride in the Job celebrates the exceptional contribution site managers make in creating homes of outstanding quality. As well as undergoing spot checks on the day-to day running of the sites, each site manager is assessed across 37 areas of site management, including their technical knowledge, consistency in the build process and the quality controls they have in place.
With more than 16,000 site managers competing for the awards, this year’s Quality Award winners have been hand-picked for their excellent standards on site.
Commenting on the Awards, Mike Quinton, Chief Executive of NHBC, said:
“Congratulations to all the 2016 Quality Award winners – the strength of this year’s entries coupled with the judges’ long and hard deliberations over selecting 445 winners from 16,000 site managers should give great pride to them all and their teams.
“For 36 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.
“Pride in the Job rewards those site managers who produce the best new homes which are built and finished to the highest possible standard. Most importantly, homeowners who buy a Pride in the Job award-winning home benefit from a high quality product.
“It’s no surprise that our data shows Pride in the Job winning sites have higher levels of customer satisfaction as these homes are without doubt among the best the UK has to offer.
“On behalf of everyone at NHBC, I would like to congratulate them on this wonderful achievement.”
As part of the year-long judging process, the Quality Award winners will now be shortlisted for Seals of Excellence and Regional titles which will be revealed in the autumn.
The regional winners will then go forward to compete for the national Supreme Winner title in their category at the Pride in the Job Gala, taking place in London in January.
