Our Site Managers in fife win national housebuilding awards
Eddie McCann, Site Manager at Taylor Wimpey’s Kingseat development and Barry Watson, Site Manager at its Wallace Grange development in Dunfermline, are both celebrating having each won a prestigious national housebuilding award.
Out of 16,000 entries across the UK, Eddie and Barry have each won a NHBC (National House Building Council) Pride in the Job Quality Award.
The award recognises an individual’s dedication to building high-quality homes for new homebuyers, and they are presented following a rigorous judging process by NHBC inspectors. This includes assessing the developments throughout the year, as well as spot checks, which gives homebuyers the assurance that award-winning developments provide top-quality homes and excellent customer service.
Our site manager Barry Watson has scooped his third NHBC Pride in the Job Award recognising his dedication to building high-quality new homes for our customers. Congratulations to Barry and his on-site team.

Our Eggstravaganza campaign helps the Trussell Trust in Dunfermline!
A charity which works to tackle poverty in Dunfermline will be able to spread a little Easter cheer, thanks to a generous donation by Taylor Wimpey East Scotland.
The Trussell Trust runs a network of over 400 foodbanks, giving emergency food and support to people in crisis across the UK, where thirteen million people live below the poverty line. In the last year (2015/2016) in Scotland they gave 133,726 three day emergency food supplies to people in crisis.
Jonathan Astill, Project Manager at The Trussell Trust Foodbank in Dunfermline, says: “We are very grateful to Taylor Wimpey East Scotland for this kind donation.
“It’s great to be able to provide Easter eggs for those using our service and we think they’ll really appreciate this gesture.”
Young readers in Dunfermline start a new chapter thanks to our donation!
Children at Carnegie Primary School are looking forward to reading some fantastic new books, following our £250 donation to the school to fund new books for the school library.
It’s all part of World Book Day, a national event which aims to encourage children to enjoy reading, and which this year celebrates its 20th birthday.
Pamela Marnoch, Headteacher at Carnegie Primary, says: “We are very grateful to Taylor Wimpey East Scotland for this kind donation.
“It’s great to be able to add to the choice of books on offer in our library for the children to read and it’s also really inspiring for them to see how much a business like Taylor Wimpey values reading.
“Our eager readers are now really looking forward to getting stuck into their new books!”
The 20th annual World Book Day takes place on Thursday 2nd March to celebrate authors, illustrators and books, and to get more children reading.
Karen Armstrong, Regional Sales and Marketing Director adds: “Reading is such an important skill, as well as being great fun, so we are delighted to be making this donation to support Carnegie Primary School.
“It’s a great example of the way we are committed to supporting schools and other local organisations within the communities in which we build our new homes. We hope the children really enjoy these new books!”
