Thirteen site managers at Miller Homes are celebrating after receiving a Quality Award in the NHBC’s annual Pride in the Job Awards.

They are among the most prestigious awards for site managers in the homebuilding industry with over 11,000 assessed against the NHBC’s stringent standards.

Michael and his team are continuing to build in the neighbourhood with an additional development, The Lodge.

Chris Endsor, Chief Executive of Miller Homes, commented: “We are very proud of our site managers who have achieved Quality Award in this year’s Pride in the Job Awards. It is a tremendous accolade for a site manager to be recognised in this way and clearly demonstrates their commitment, dedication and passion for delivering homes to our customers which are of the very highest standards.
“Achieving a Quality Award is a real team effort with the site manager at the helm, so everyone who has contributed to this success on a day to day basis, including our site teams and wider business, our supply chain partners and professional teams, should also take pride in what has been accomplished. “
Commenting on the awards, NHBC Chief Executive, Steve Wood, said: “Pride in the Job has been pivotal in improving the quality of new homes so it’s fantastic to be able to celebrate its 40th anniversary. Despite the numerous challenges the industry has faced in recent times, the very best site managers of 2020 have kept their focus on delivering high quality new homes for their customers.
“At NHBC we are very proud of Pride in the Job, what it stands for and the impact it has had and continues to have across the sector.
“Congratulations to all the 2020 Quality Award winners – be proud of your incredible achievements!”
The next round of the competition will take place in the autumn, when all the Quality Award winners have the opportunity to win a Seal of Excellence as well as competing for the Regional title in their respective areas. The Regional winners will then go on to compete for the national Supreme Award in their categories at the Pride in the Job Gala Dinner, taking place in London January 2021.
