Industry leading build quality

Lee is one of just four site managers in the UK to win the top industry award this year.

The competition is split between four categories of housebuilder - small, medium, multi-storey and large - and Lee was named as the best in the large builder category.

Lee was named as one of five NHBC Seal of Excellence winners from our North Yorkshire business unit in 2021. The recipients were whittled down from the year’s Quality Award winners, who are in turn chosen from more than 16,000 site managers running sites up and down the UK.

This was a record year for our North Yorkshire business unit, with five site managers receiving the NHBC quality award, all five converting to Seal of Excellence awards, and Lee going on to win the Regional and then the Supreme awards.

Steven Laurie, UK Head of Production at Taylor Wimpey, said: “It’s thanks to site managers like Lee that we are industry leaders in build quality and we’re thrilled to celebrate his success as an NHBC Pride in the Job Supreme Award winner.

“This is a fantastic achievement for Lee and his team and a true testament to their dedication to building homes of the highest standards and that our customers can be proud of. Our subcontractors, suppliers and wider team also play a key role in the delivery of our high quality homes and we thank them for their continued support.”
