Great Yarmouth site management team recognised in excellence awards
20 July 2021
The site manager at Great Yarmouth’s Bluebell Meadow development has been recognised for his commitment to construction excellence.
Lewis Flower leads the construction team which has been named as Anglia’s regional winner in Persimmon’s national construction excellence awards scheme.
Michelle Baker, director in charge at Anglia, said: “We want to celebrate the people who take personal ownership of their work, taking genuine pride in the homes they hand over to our valued customers. Congratulations to site manager Lewis Flower, who has been recognised for his work at the Bluebell Meadow development.”
Bluebell Meadow Phase 4 is a collection of three and five-bedroom homes on the southern edge of Great Yarmouth, designed for modern living and close to the facilities and transport links needed by a range of buyers.
Group construction director Andrew Fuller said: “Over the past two years Persimmon has undergone a comprehensive review of operations, resulting in the introduction of ‘The Persimmon Way’ – a national framework for construction and customer care quality which is transforming the business.
“These awards identify those site teams that have embraced The Persimmon Way and demonstrated initiative and outstanding management skills, encouraging everyone involved on their development to excel.”
Key to the implementation of The Persimmon Way was the appointment of a team of Independent Quality Controllers (IQCs), who assess every single plot under construction at key stages and only allow work to continue if Persimmon’s higher standards have been met.
These IQCs, together with Senior Management and Directors, have considered site management teams across a rigorous set of criteria and only those that exceeded the highest quality standards have been nominated for Persimmon’s Construction Excellence Awards.
Each of the 31 nominated teams now compete to be named top of their division before overall Gold, Silver and Bronze winners are announced by Persimmon Group chief executive Dean Finch.
Site teams considered for the Construction Excellence Awards have demonstrated achievement in areas such as clear communication to tradespeople, inspiring their workforce with a can-do attitude, supporting staff training, proactive liaison with IQCs and warranty providers, build efficiency and quality, ongoing personal training and development, implementing good practice and safety standards and delivering positive customer care and after sales service.
