Organised by NHBC, the UK’s leading new homes warranty and insurance provider, Pride in the Job celebrates site managers who have achieved the very highest standards in house building across the UK. It is the most highly regarded competition in the house-building industry and the most prestigious benchmark for exceptional site managers.

Judging for the Awards is rigorous, with the current competition beginning in July last year and each site manager 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 verification have taken place to decide the winning site managers.

Pride in the Job is at the heart of NHBC’s core purpose to raise standards in house building. By recognising the very best site managers across the UK, the competition celebrates the vital role that site managers play in ensuring new homes are delivered on time, on safe sites and to exacting construction quality standards.

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 2023.

Commenting on the Awards, NHBC Chief Executive Steve Wood said: “For more than 40 years, Pride in the Job has been an important part of our work to help drive construction quality. Winning site managers tell us that it inspires them to give a little extra and to strive harder for ever-higher standards of house building.”

Charles Ward, founder of Ward Homes Yorkshire congratulated Matt: “Matt and his team really deserve this award. Ward Homes Yorkshire are dedicated to uncompromising design and quality property development on all of our sites, so to be recognised by the NHBC for a Pride in the Job Quality Award is a real honour.”
