Taylor Wimpey North Yorkshire Site Manager wins national house-building award - July 2020
Paul McLachlan, site manager at Taylor Wimpey’s Morley Carr Farm development in Yarm, is celebrating having won a prestigious national house-building award. Out of 11,000 entries, Paul was honoured with a NHBC (National House-Building Council) Pride in the Job Quality Award.
The awards recognise an individual’s dedication to building high-quality homes for new homebuyers and are presented following a rigorous judging process by NHBC inspectors. This includes assessing the developments throughout the year, as well as spot checks, giving homebuyers the assurance that Taylor Wimpey’s Morley Carr Farm development provides top-quality homes and excellent customer service.
Paul McLachlan, site manager at Morley Carr Farm said: “I’m delighted to have won a Quality Award. It’s a fantastic honour, not just for me, but for the whole team at Morley Carr Farm. They all work incredibly hard and take great pride in ensuring that the homes we build are completed to the highest possible standards.”
Jackie Coulthard, Managing Director of Taylor Wimpey North Yorkshire, added: “We are committed to maintaining the highest levels of quality and customer service, and this recognition has ensured that we continue to be an NHBC award-winning housebuilder year after year. Paul’s Quality Award is thoroughly deserved and we’ll all be supporting him as he progresses through to the regional heats and hopefully to the grand final.”
Pride in the Job is the only UK-wide awards scheme that recognises the significant contribution of Site Managers who achieve the highest standards in new home construction. It has been instrumental in raising the build quality of new homes in the UK for 40 years.
The competition’s regional events will now take place virtually in the autumn, whilst the Supreme Award winners will be announced in January 2021.

Since the opening of its doors five years ago, community groups, schools, and sports teams within close proximity to the Taylor Wimpey Morley Carr Farm development in Yarm have received over £8,000 in donations and support.
Whether it’s to help buy new sports equipment or to treat care home residents, the donations go a long way towards making a difference to the local community.
Steven Ball, sales and marketing director at Taylor Wimpey North Yorkshire commented: “For us, building homes is about so much more than just bricks and mortar and we regularly reach out to the local community to offer support for worthy causes and initiatives.”
Stockton Town Juniors Football Club was one of the latest teams to receive a £395 donation towards brand new kits for the latest season.
Liam Cox, development officer of Stockton Town Juniors commented: “The donation by Taylor Wimpey is a huge boost to the children and will allow them to look their best when representing Stockton Town FC.”
As well as monetary donations, Taylor Wimpey run schemes for local primary schools including World Book Day vouchers and supporting Walk to School month, with fluorescent hi-visibility wristbands given to pupils.
Yarm Primary School received 60 snap bands last October to be distributed amongst Key Stage 1 children who walk to school.
Jill Wood, headteacher at Yarm Primary School said: “It’s really important to us that our pupils are happy and engaged when they arrive at school and walking is a great way for them to start the day.
“We want to encourage children and their parents to walk to school and the high visibility snap bands donated by Taylor Wimpey will help them to do this more safely.”
Set in the popular market town of Yarm, Morley Carr Farm offers a selection of three, four and 5-bedroom homes, perfect for first-time buyers and families.
