Inspiring Business by Sharing Success


A Leicestershire Site Manager has scooped a top national industry award for building the best quality new homes in Britain.   

Henry Patecki, a Senior Site Manager at David Wilson Homes East Midlands, has been celebrated for his excellent work at the developer’s Leicester Forest East development Forest Chase.             

He won the Supreme Award in the Large Builder category of the Pride in the Job campaign run by the National House Building Council (NHBC), beating off competition from more than 16,000 Site Managers throughout Britain.

The awards are the most coveted in the industry and are given after inspectors from NHBC – the industry’s watchdog body – carry out a series of site inspections to select the best-organised and best-built housing developments in Britain. Site managers are judged on every aspect of their job including technical skill, quality workmanship, customer service and site safety.

On top of his recent accolades, since Henry joined David Wilson Homes he has won 15 NHBC Pride in the Job Awards and was recently named as Barratt Development’s East Region Site Manager of the Year.

He has been working for the developer’s East Region division, which covers Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire, Lincolnshire and Warwickshire, for more than 19 years, where he started as a Site Manager.   

Henry said: “I’m extremely honoured to have been given the NHBC Supreme award, it’s a privilege.

“This has been an enormous team effort and I would like to thank the whole site team and my directors for their support.”

John Reddington, Managing Director at David Wilson Homes East Midlands, said: “Here at David Wilson Homes we pride ourselves on our high standards of housebuilding but this applies to our staff as well, who we work with very closely.

“By employing excellent team players we can ensure that our trademark high quality is maintained across all of our sites and Henry is certainly no exception here. We would like to congratulate him on this fantastic achievement.”
