11 sites managers have received a 2018 NHBC Pride in the Job Quality Award which celebrates the exceptional contribution site managers make in creating homes of outstanding quality. Around 16,000 site managers are assessed with only 300 awards made, which means the accolade recognises the industry’s top two per cent who produce the best quality new homes, built and finished to the highest possible standards.
As well as undergoing spot checks of the day-to-day running of their site, each site manager is assessed across 37 different areas of site management, including technical knowledge, quality and consistency.
The CALA award winners were:
Conor Stewart for Longhorn Gardens, Aston Clinton
Craig Donaldson for Ten Brunswick Road, Edinburgh
Ian Welsh for Mayburn Park, Straiton
Iain Dickinson for The Grange at Balgownie, Bridge of Don
Fred Anderson for CALA at Grandhome, Bridge of Don
Rob Swanson for Milltimber Grange at Oldfold Village, Milltimber
Robert Murney for The Paddocks at Cults Park, Cults
Rob Green, Amlets Place, Cranleigh
Matt Owen, Farriers Rise, Ringmer
Craig Riches, Imber Riverside, East Molesey
Michael Carrigan, Dullatur Greens, Cumbernauld
All will now go through to the next stage of the competition, the Seal of Excellence Awards, which will be announced in the autumn.
Graham Reid, CALA’s Interim Chief Executive, comments, “CALA is an upmarket homebuilder which prides itself both on the quality of our homes and on having well-managed developments with the very highest levels of site safety. Our independent customer satisfaction scores show that over 93% of customers would recommend CALA to a friend which is testament to the pride, care and attention to detail that goes into creating a CALA home.
“NHBC Pride in the Job is the highest industry accolade a site manager can receive and we are delighted for all the winning site managers and their wider development teams that they have been recognised in this way.”
