South Midlands project manager awarded national accolade for house building quality
26 June 2023
A project manager from our South Midlands region has been recognised for their proven dedication and making their mark as one of the best in the UK after winning a top housing industry award.
Paul Moore - who works at the Meon Way Gardens site in Long Marston - is celebrating having received a Quality Award from the National House Building Council (NHBC) Pride in the Job Awards.
Running for 43 years, the accolade which is awarded by the UK’s leading new homes warranty and insurance provider, is the most highly regarded in the house-building industry and a prestigious benchmark for exceptional site and project managers. With only 443 winners selected out of over 8,000 entrants across the UK, the recipients are among the country’s best house builders.
Celebrating his success, Paul said “I’m delighted that the hard work of the Meon Way Gardens team has been recognised at the Pride in the Job awards. It’s been a team effort to ensure we’re delivering for our customers and residents and it’s brilliant for this to be noticed across the industry. I’m absolutely thrilled to have received the award.”
Judging for the awards is rigorous, with the current competition beginning in July last year. Each site / project manager is assessed across six key areas: consistency, attention to detail, leadership, interpretation of drawings and specifications, technical expertise and health and safety. Thousands of site inspections and meticulous scoring and verifications have taken place to decide the winners.
Commenting on the awards, Steve Wood, CEO at NHBC added “Congratulations to all the winners who should feel proud to have received a Pride in the Job Award. Pride in the Job is firmly at the heart of NHBC’s mission to raise standards in the housing industry. It is important we recognise the vital role site managers play in ensuring new homes are delivered on time, on safe sites and to exacting construction quality standards. This accolade recognises the best across the UK and celebrates how much Paul has inspired his team by going the extra mile to deliver homes of the highest quality.”
The flagship competition has three categories for different sized businesses: small, medium and large house builders, plus a multi-storey category where site managers are working on projects up to seven storeys for multiple occupancy and finally the high-rise category for multiple occupancy projects over seven storeys. The Quality Award winners will now go on to compete for Seal of Excellence and Regional Awards in the autumn, with the national Supreme Award winners unveiled in January 2024.
