Delight as site manager chosen as award finalist

13 April 2015

A Lancashire builder is celebrating after a site manager was named as a regional finalist in the LABC’s annual site managers’ awards.

Persimmon Homes Lancashire, which has developments across Lancashire and Cumbria, was delighted when it heard that site manager Richard Graham, who works at Brackenleigh, in Carlisle, had been named as a regional finalist.

The LABC Warranty Regional Site Managers Awards recognise site managers who achieve the highest standards of construction.

Managing director Mark Cook said: “It is fantastic news that Richard has made it through to the regional finals.  He was shortlisted after a robust process which has scrutinised his achievements at this development.

“We work hard to get the right staff around us and it is great when you get confirmation that your staff are amongst the best.”

The judging process looks at various aspects including site administration, health and safety, storage of materials, waste control and site tidiness.

Richard, who was born and bred in Carlisle, is no stranger to success having been presented with a prestigious NHBC Pride in the Job Quality Award in 2012.

He said: “I originally trained as a joiner but was ambitious and worked my way up to site manager, by getting promoted to assistant site manager and learning on the job.

“I take pride in seeing a house built from scratch. It is a real achievement, especially when you see the customer move in. I still get a buzz from being part of their dream home. I have a great team working in the site and it is great to be recognised.”

Mark added: “What sets a winning site manager apart is the fact that they will go that extra mile to achieve quality and are thorough in their workmanship. We wish Richard the best of luck in the regional finals in June.”
