Almost 250 leading figures in the Welsh house building industry gathered at NHBC’s 36th Pride in the Job Regional Awards ceremony in Cardiff City Hall on Friday, September 2.
Regional award winners John Greggain from L Greggain & Co Ltd (small category), Dale Dickenson from Llanmoor Homes (medium category) and Steve Northam from Taylor Wimpey South Wales (large category), were chosen from over 16,000 UK site managers, and recognised at the ceremony held at Cardiff City Hall.
Another eight sites were awarded Seals of Excellence, while the Regional award winners will now go on to compete for the Supreme Awards to be announced next January.
These awards are known as the ‘Oscars of the House Building Industry’ and to win an award is an exceptional achievement.
For 36 years, NHBC has rewarded the UK’s best site managers in delivering the high quality of homes that the country needs.
NHBC is the leading new home warranty provider in the UK and the group’s Regional Director, Paul Edwards, congratulated them on their win.
Edwards commented: “Pride in the Job is now firmly established as a significant proof of distinction for the best site managers in the UK. The fact that winners are automatically entered into the competition based on the results of their work onsite is a huge endorsement for all winners.
“It’s been a tough year of judging starting way back in July 2015 and it’s a long hard road to win a Pride in the Job Award. The Awards recognise site managers who know how to go one stage better, whose hard work ensures we live in high quality homes and rewards dedication and expertise.”
He added that last year NHBS registered almost 4,700 new homes in Wales and site managers played a crucial role in the delivery of these homes.
