Barratt Homes Site Manager recognised for construction excellence in Brixworth

A Site Manager working for local homebuilder Barratt Homes Northampton in Brixworth achieved a prestigious award in a national competition to find the best-run building sites in the country.

Darren Price, 36, has gained official recognition for the excellence in which he manages the new homes development, called Saxon Rise, by receiving a Pride in the Job Quality Award. The awards are dedicated to recognising Site Managers who achieve the highest standard in housebuilding.

This is the third time in a row that Darren has secured a prestigious Pride in the Job Quality Award. He joined the division more than seven years ago as an Assistant Site Manager and was promoted to Site Manager after just two years.

Darren, from Oakham in Rutland, said:

“It feels fantastic to have been given a Pride in the Job Quality award; it’s a brilliant achievement for both myself and the development as a whole.

“I’d like to thank the whole site team for all of their hard work and dedication to Saxon Rise as they’ve been key to the success of this development.”

Darren is one of two Site Managers within the division, which is based in Northampton, to win a Quality award.

Site managers are judged by their site safety, technical skills, workmanship and customer service. Every year site managers will face a site spot check from the NHBC, with over 16,000 site managers being assessed and only around 450 winning a quality award each year, they are a much coveted sign of excellence within the industry.

Andrew Swindell, Managing Director at Barratt Homes Northampton, said:

“We would like to congratulate Darren on his success and his continued dedication to our Saxon Rise development.

“We are delighted to yet again win more Pride of the Job Quality awards than any other housebuilder as it demonstrates the high standards that we demand as a company.

“More importantly though, the awards showcase excellence in housebuilding; homeowners who buy a Pride in the Job winning home benefit from knowing they have bought a top quality product.”

Saxon Rise is a popular development located in the idyllic village of Brixworth. The quality-built homes are just minutes away from the centre which features an array of shops, a post office, greengrocers and a butchers.

The development is perfect for commuters, with great links to the M1, A14, A45 and the A43. Trains are also available with fast links to London from Northampton taking under an hour.
