A site manager has scooped a ‘Seal of Excellence’ for his work in helping to deliver quality new home construction.
Site manager at Taylor Wimpey East Scotland, Colin McNeish, picked up the award at this year’s NHBC Pride in the Job Awards. He gained his award for his “outstanding work and leadership” of Phase 3A and 3B at Almond Park in Musselburgh.
Located off Pinkie Road in Musselburgh, Almond Park offers a range of homes and apartments from Taylor Wimpey’s Scotland two range, that are designed to appeal to a wide variety of purchasers who have different budgets.
Work began on the latest phase in November last year, which has continued the success of the earlier phases of the development, which included the first Local Affordable Rented Housing Trust development in Scotland in partnership with East Lothian Council and supported by the Scottish Government.
McNeish joined Taylor Wimpey in August 2012 as an assistant site manager at Taylor Wimpey’s Hopefield development in Bonnyrigg, helping the team to deliver a series of affordable homes for Midlothian Council.
He also started the construction works at Taylor Wimpey’s Cameron Gardens in Bilston prior to being promoted to site manager and joining the team at Almond Park in Musselburgh in late 2014.
Speaking about receiving the award, McNeish commented: “The NHBC Pride in the Job is quite an achievement and I’m delighted to have won it on my first development as site manager.
“This is an award which can only be achieved with the hard work and determination of the whole site team and their drive for excellence every day – without them I wouldn’t have this award.
“To have also secured a Seal of Excellence Award that places me within the top ten site managers in Scotland is just incredible, and I’m really happy.
“The whole development team is very proud to deliver what are considered to be some of the best new homes in Scotland.”
