Llanharan Site Manager picks up prestigious NHBC Quality Award

25 June 2024

Nick Rumble, site manager at the Michaels Grove development at Parc Llanilid, Llanharan, has been honoured by the National House Building Council (NHBC) with the prestigious Pride in the Job Quality Award, recognising his exceptional dedication to home construction.

Nick is among 19 site managers from Persimmon Homes to achieve this distinguished award this year, marking the company’s best performance in nearly fifteen years. At Michaels Grove, Nick is supported by assistant site managers, Jason Garland and Jamie Wicks.

Michaels Grove, part of the significant Parc Llanilid development in Llanharan, aims to meet the high demand for housing in the area. When complete, the site will feature over 1000 homes, a new primary school, and a village centre with leisure, retail, and community facilities. The scheme, partly set on the grounds of a former open-cast coal mine, focuses on building a sustainable and inclusive community.

The Pride in the Job competition is highly regarded in the homebuilding industry, serving as a benchmark for outstanding quality and performance among site managers.

All site managers on NHBC Buildmark warranty-registered sites are eligible to compete. Quality Award winners advance to the Seal of Excellence Award stage, with the opportunity to compete for Regional Awards and the ultimate Pride in the Job Supreme Awards in January 2025.

Nick shared his thoughts on the recognition, stating “I’m truly privileged to receive this award, which is a reflection of our team’s unwavering commitment to Persimmon’s values of quality, integrity, and care. Alongside my assistant site managers, Jason and Jamie, and the rest of the site team, we strive to ensure every home we build provides a solid foundation for families to create lasting memories.

“At Michaels Grove, our focus is on more than just building houses; we are dedicated to creating a vibrant, sustainable community where residents can thrive. This award acknowledges our dedication to excellence and our efforts to exceed expectations.”

Stuart Phillips, Managing Director for Persimmon West Wales, said "we’re very proud of Nick and his team at Michaels Grove. Nick’s leadership exemplifies Persimmon’s core values of passion, integrity, and commitment to quality. His dedication ensures that we not only meet but exceed the expectations of our customers.

“By adhering to these values, Nick and his team are helping to build not just homes, but strong, enduring communities. This award is a testament to their hard work and the high standards they uphold.”
