Our Site Managers recognised for pride in their jobs

Date: Friday 16 January 2015

Good luck to all of our Site Managers who are in the running for their ultimate industry accolade – the NHBC Pride in the Job Supreme Award.

Five of our Site Managers from across England and Scotland will be attending a glittering awards ceremony in London this evening to see who will be crowned the UK’s best Site Manager!

Pride in the Job is the only UK-wide award scheme to recognise the contribution a Site Manager makes to a development. It is the most celebrated award in the industry, marking out recipients as exceptional performers in UK house-building.

Here’s a little bit more about each of our Site Managers, who are part of a select group of just 22 nationally who have already scooped the prestigious Pride in the Job Seal of Excellence gong – and are now going head-to-head for the Supreme Award crown!

Andy Shaw oversees construction at our Midlands business’s Diglis Water development in Worcester.

Andy, who began his career as a joiner in 1980 before moving into management in 2000, puts his success down to his attention to detail and a drive to please his customers.

Steven Cole is Site Manager at NR1, our East Anglia business’s city centre waterside development in Norwich.

Steven, who was originally a carpenter and joiner, says: “I like the challenges building brings, and getting it all to fit together! I also like being part of a team, and I have been lucky, as I have a great bunch of guys on site.”

He says: “It’s a great honour not just for me but the whole team at Dovedale Park. They all work incredibly hard and take great pride in ensuring that the homes we build are completed to the highest possible standards.”

Rob Mitchell is Senior Site Manager at our North East business’s Clarence Court development in Houghton le Spring.

The former Newcastle College student joined Taylor Wimpey as a trainee Assistant Site Manager in 2003, progressing to Senior Site Manager four years ago.

Paul Cunningham, Site Manager at our West Scotland business unit, oversees construction at our Dargavel Village development in Bishopton.
