Harworth site manager wins top industry award

The site manager at a new housing development in Harworth says he is “on cloud nine” after landing a coveted industry award.

Ian Lockwood, who is in charge at Jones Homes’ Simpson Park development off Scrooby Road, has received a Pride in the Job Quality Award from the National House Building Council (NHBC).

He is one of just 450 site managers from around 16,000 across the country to be awarded the prestigious accolade, which recognises those who achieve the highest standards in construction.

It is the first Pride in the Job award that Ian has won in his 19-year career as a site manager, the last 12 years of which he has spent at Jones Homes.

Ian, 59, of Conisbrough, said:

“I’m absolutely over the moon to win a Pride in the Job award. I have been very close in the past so to finally get my hands on one after all these years is a great feeling. I’m still on cloud nine.

He added: “At Jones Homes we always strive to deliver a quality product for our customers so I’m delighted that our efforts have been recognised by the judges.

“To run a successful site it’s important to have good man management skills and a dedicated workforce, and at Simpson Park I’m extremely fortunate to have an excellent team of people who are committed to their work.”

Jones Homes is building 71 homes at Simpson Park, which is part of a wider regeneration of the former Harworth Coliery.

The first residents have just moved in and two show homes will be launched in July. Construction work on the site is due to be completed by next summer.

Prior to starting work at Simpson Park, Ian was previously site manager at the nearby Woodland Grange development, also off Scrooby Road, where 117 new homes have been built.
