NHBC Pride in the Job Award Winner
Andy Oakes has won the NHBC’s “Pride In The Job” – North West, Single Home, Commendation Award for his site at Heyes Park Hartford. Congratulations Andy! Well done!
He is a first-round winner in the annual NHBC Pride in the Job Awards. This award recognises personal achievement of site managers in creating new UK homes of outstanding quality.
Andy is one of 450 Quality Award winners from across the UK. These were selected from around 15,000 entrants and are in the top few percent of their profession.
Ian Davies, Regional Director for NHBC, the UK’s leading standards setter and warranty provider for new UK homes, said: “Congratulations to Andy Oakes of CB Homes Ltd, who has been commended for building homes that are of an exceptional standard.
“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.”
Site managers are uniquely positioned to positively influence the quality of a build, being responsible for a project from start to finish, overseeing everything that happens on site.
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 in London in January.
