A South Wales site manager has been recognised for his dedication to quality housebuilding with a top industry award.
Stephen Northam, senior site manager, has been presented with a National House-Building Council (NHBC) Pride in the Job Quality Award this month. Stephen received his award for his work at our Golwg y Môr development in Rhoose and has previously been recognised by the NHBC 13 times.
The awards recognise an individual’s dedication to building high-quality homes and are presented following a rigorous judging process by NHBC inspectors. This includes assessing our developments throughout the year, giving homebuyers the assurance that we provide top-quality homes and excellent customer service.
The winners will now go on to the regional stage in Autumn 2020, with the Supreme Awards gala final being held in early 2021.
Stephen said: “It is an honour to be one of 25 site managers across Wales to receive such a prestigious award. This is testament to all the hard work that my team and I at Golwg y Môr put in to produce high-quality homes for our customers.
“I have always been quality-driven and take great pride in ensuring that the homes we build are completed to the highest possible standards. Happy customers make coming to work even more enjoyable.”
Huw Evans, Production Director at Taylor Wimpey South Wales, said: “We are delighted that our Golwg y Môr team has achieved a Pride in the Job Award for the third year running. Stephen has led from the front, developing his team and showing how a calm and measured approach is the way to work.
“Our team's Quality Award is all thoroughly deserved and we’ll all be supporting them as they progress through to the regional stage and hopefully to the grand final later this year.”
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. This year just 450 regional winners were chosen from around 11,000 who are eligible at the start of the competition.
