Site managers working on the new St Michael's Hurst and Stortford Fields housing developments in Bishop's Stortford win Pride in the Job awards
Two site managers working on new housing developments in Bishop's Stortford have won Pride in the Job awards.
Anthony Stone, of Countryside New Homes and Communities Eastern, was recognised for his efforts at St Michael's Hurst.
And Marcus Martin, of Taylor Wimpey North Thames, earned the accolade for his work at Stortford Fields.
They were two of 450 site managers in a field of more than 10,000 nominees to win a Quality Award in the first round of the competition run by the National House Building Council (NHBC).
They will both now compete for Seal of Excellence and Regional Awards in the autumn, with the national Supreme Award winners unveiled in January.
Pride in the Job, which was launched 41 years ago, celebrates the vital role that site managers play in ensuring new homes are delivered on time, on safe sites and to exacting construction quality standards.
Each site manager was assessed across six key areas: consistency, attention to detail, leadership, interpretation of drawings and specifications, technical expertise, and health and safety.
"Pride in the Job has been pivotal in improving the quality of new homes for more than 40 years," said NHBC chief executive Steve Wood.
"Despite the numerous challenges the industry has faced, the very best site managers of 2021 have remained focused on delivering high-quality new homes for their customers.
"At NHBC we are very proud of what Pride in the Job stands for and the impact it has had across the sector. Pride in the Job-winning sites have higher levels of homeowner satisfaction as these homes are among the very best in the country."
