Chelmsford site manager is best in the region after award win

Date: Thursday 12 November 2020


A Chelmsford-based site manager has been recognised as one of the best in the South East after winning a second award for his dedication to quality housebuilding.

Ryan Dunn, who oversees work at our Aspyre development has been named as a Regional Award winner in the National House-Building Council (NHBC) Pride in the Job Quality Award scheme.

Ryan is the first site manager from the East London business unit to win a Regional Award. He was named in the ‘Multi-storey Builder’ category during an online ceremony on Friday 31st October, when Seal of Excellence award winners were also revealed.

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 the developments throughout the year, giving homebuyers the assurance that our developments provide top-quality homes and excellent customer service.

Ryan is now in contention for the Pride in the Job Supreme Award, which will be announced during a gala final in early 2021.

Ryan said: “Winning the NHBC Pride in the Job Regional Award is a great honour for the whole team and a reward for the commitment given by all departments, subcontractors and consultants. It means our customers at Aspyre can be sure that their new homes are of the highest quality.”
Peter Sebry, Production Director at Taylor Wimpey East London, said: “For Ryan to win one the the NHBC’s highest accolades is a fantastic achievement. It is the first time that the East London business unit has had a Regional Award winner and we will all be rooting for him at the Supreme Award final next year.

“My appreciation extends to all the Taylor Wimpey staff and subcontractors at Aspyre. Without their assistance this award would not have been possible.”

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 marks the 40th anniversary of the award, and just 450 regional winners were chosen from around 11,000 site managers who are eligible at the start of the competition.

NHBC Regional Director Paul Edwards said: “Pride in the Job has been pivotal in improving the quality of new homes for decades and it’s fantastic to be able to celebrate its 40th anniversary. Despite the numerous challenges the industry has faced in recent times due to the pandemic, the very best site managers of 2020 have kept their focus on delivering high quality new homes for their customers. 

“A site manager’s role can at times be one of the most challenging in house building and their constant drive for excellence is very much at the heart of the competition. Receiving a Seal of Excellence Award is a great achievement for any site manager and a Regional Award even more so, as it places them right at the top of their profession. It’s no surprise that Pride in the Job winning sites have higher levels of customer satisfaction as these homes are without doubt among the best the UK has to offer.”
