Four Miller Homes North East site managers are celebrating after receiving a Quality Award in the first round of this year’s NHBC Pride in the Job Awards.

Lee Richardson, Paul Ritchie, Simon Robson and Keith Wishart have been recognised in what are considered to be among the most prestigious awards in the housebuilding industry, celebrating the exceptional contribution site managers make in providing new homes of outstanding quality.

Every homebuilder registered under the NHBC Buildmark is entered into the competition, with site managers meticulously assessed across 44 areas of site management, including technical knowledge, consistency of the build process and quality controls.

Between them during their careers with Miller Homes, these award-winning North East site managers have received 19 Quality Awards and seven Seal of Excellence Awards – these are up for grabs in the next round of the competition which will be held in the autumn. They will also compete for the regional title in their respective area, and the regional winners will go on to compete for the national Supreme Award in their categories at the Pride in the Job Gala Dinner in January 2020.

Chris Endsor, Chief Executive of Miller Homes said: “Being recognised with a Pride in the Job Quality Award is a tremendous accolade for any site manager and is richly deserved by each of our winners, who have demonstrated a consistent and committed approach to on-site standards of quality and safety in the building of our new homes. We are very proud of their achievements and wish them all the very best for the next stages of the competition.”

Commenting on the awards, NHBC Chief Executive Steve Wood said: “Launched nearly 40 years ago, Pride in the Job has been instrumental in driving up the quality of new homes. Despite the challenges the industry has faced in recent times, this year’s winners have kept their focus on delivering high quality new homes for their customers.

“A site manager’s role is undoubtedly one of the toughest in house building and their drive for excellence is very much at the heart of the competition. Receiving a Quality Award is a great achievement for any site manager. It’s no surprise that Pride in the Job winning sites have higher levels of customer satisfaction as these homes are without doubt among the best the UK has to offer.

“Congratulations to all the 2019 Quality Award winners.”
