NHBC Quality Awards Hat-trick for Miller Homes North East

Miller Homes is continuing to prove its commitment to excellence as three of its North East site managers have been acknowledged for their work in building new homes safely and to the highest quality at the NHBC Pride in the Job Quality Awards.


John Harrison, site manager at Miller Homes’ Portland Wynd development in Blyth; Paul Ritchie, site manager at Wheatfields in Seaton Delaval; and Simon Robson, site manager at Hunters Fold in Middleton St George, were amongst those to be recognised.


Renowned for the high standard of their work, John, Paul and Simon have been awarded 18 Pride in the Job Quality Awards collectively during their time at Miller Homes.


Paul, from Wallsend, said: “I’m extremely proud to have been awarded my ninth consecutive Quality Award by the NHBC. It is always an amazing feeling to be recognised by the Pride in the Job Quality Awards, and fingers crossed I take home my seventh Seal of Excellence during the second stage of the awards.”


John, from Blyth, added: “The NHBC Pride in the Job Awards are highly respected by the housebuilding industry and I was delighted to receive my third Quality Award. At Miller Homes we pride ourselves on building the best quality homes and it is fantastic to have the standard of my work acknowledged by the NHBC.”


The NHBC-backed awards, which are widely known as being among the most prestigious in the industry, recognise site managers across the homebuilding industry who have showcased the highest possible standards of health and safety.


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 in the build process and quality controls.


Patrick Arkle, regional managing director at Miller Homes North East, added: “We are extremely proud of John, Paul and Simon, who have all once again been recognised by the NHBC for their ongoing dedication to building new homes safely and to the highest standards day in and day out.


“We are committed to building homes to the very best standards and it is a fantastic achievement to have their hard work recognised. We wish them the very best for the later stages of the competition.”


Commenting on the Awards, NHBC chief executive Steve Wood said: “NHBC launched Pride in the Job in 1980, with the clear aim of promoting and driving the highest standards in new home building, 38 years on, this drive for excellence remains very much at the heart of the competition.


“Pride in the Job recognises the hugely important role site managers play in delivering high quality new home for residents and homeowners across the UK. Their role is undoubtedly one of the toughest in house building, they really do make the difference to quality on site. Many congratulations to all of the 2018 Quality Award Winners.”


The next round of the Pride in the Job Awards, which takes place in the autumn, will offer all of the Quality Awards winners the opportunity to win a coveted Seal of Excellence as well as competing for the Regional title in their respective areas.


The regional winners will then go on to compete for the national Supreme Winner title in their category at the Pride in the Job Gala Dinner, taking place in London on January 25 2019.
