Prestigious Industry Accolade Awarded to North East Site Managers

TWO Miller Homes North East site managers are celebrating after receiving Quality Awards in the first round of the National House Building Council’s (NHBC) Pride in the Job Awards.

Paul Ritchie, site manager at Miller Homes’ Wheatfields development in Seaton Delaval, and John Harrison, site manager at Miller Homes’ Portland Wynd development in Blyth, were amongst nine Miller Homes site managers across the UK to be recognised by the national awards.

Organised by the NHBC, the Pride in the Job Awards acknowledge those site managers who have excelled in achieving high standards in housebuilding. Every housebuilder registered under the NHBC Buildmark is entered into the competition, with site managers rigorously assessed across 44 areas of site management, including technical knowledge, consistency in the build process and quality controls.

Commenting on his success, Paul, 41 from Wallsend, said: “This is my eighth consecutive Quality Award and it feels great to have been recognised by the NHBC once again. Fingers crossed that I will be awarded my seventh Seal of Excellence at the second stage of the awards later this year.”

John, 59 from Blyth, added: “At Miller Homes we’re very proud of the quality of homes and communities which we are building, and I’m really pleased to have received my second Quality Award.

Chris Endsor, chief executive of Miller Homes, said: “Building new homes safely and to the highest standards is a key priority for Miller Homes. We are very proud of all of our site managers who have received this recognition from the industry for their commitment and dedication to achieving these standards day in and day out at their developments.“

Neil Jefferson, managing director of the NHBC, commented: “Congratulations to all of the 2017 Quality Award winners – the strength of this year’s entries coupled with the judges’ long and hard deliberations over selecting around 450 winners from more than 16,000 site managers should give great pride to them all and their teams.

“Every year the NHBC Pride in the Job Awards give us the chance to celebrate the efforts site managers go to promoting continuous improvement in the quality of new homes, year on year, for homeowners and their families to enjoy.”

Later on this year, the winners of the Quality Awards will take part in the next round of the competition, hoping to achieve a coveted Seal of Excellence Award as well as competing for the regional title. The regional winners will then go forward to compete for the national Supreme Winner title in their category at the Pride in the Job Gala, taking place in London in January 2018.
