Taylor Wimpey site manager Stephen Fulcher is celebrating after scooping a top UK building industry award for his work at The Hampdens development at Costessey in Norfolk.
Stephen collected a ‘Pride in the Job’ Quality Award in this year’s prestigious National House-Building Council (NHBC) competition.
The awards recognise site managers who consistently demonstrate outstanding commitment to the building of high-quality new homes – and ensure the smooth and safe running of developments.
Stephen (45), says the key to doing such a good job is ‘to get the paperwork done early each day’, so that when the tradesmen arrive on site at 7.30am, he can give them and their work his full attention.
“With the changing market, the past couple of years have been a tougher time on site,” Stephen explains. “But we keep team morale up by trying to always give praise when it’d due – after all, I wouldn’t have got this award without everyone at The Hampdens having pride in their job too.
“The most enjoyable aspect my working day is seeing customers happy with their new home – and so that’s why I make sure we aim for this and nothing less in every home we build.”
