Top marks for quality for two Miller Homes Midlands site managerss

Two Miller Homes Midlands site managers are celebrating after receiving a Quality Award in the first round of this year’s annual NHBC Pride in the Job Awards.

Lee Barlow and Vinnie Morris who manage Miller Homes’ Castle Donington Charters Gate development and Derby-based Hackwood Park development respectively, join eight other Miller Homes site managers who also received the industry-leading accolade.

Now in their 39th year, the awards are recognised as among the most prestigious in the housebuilding industry and celebrate the exceptional contribution site managers make in providing new homes of outstanding quality.

Every homebuilder registered under the NHBC Buildmark is entered into the competition, with site managers meticulously assessed across 44 areas of site management, including technical knowledge, consistency of the build process and quality controls.

Commenting on the awards, Lee said:

“After 35 years in the business, it is the most rewarding feeling to be acknowledged for doing something that you 100% believe in and love doing. Our main goal on site is to build to the highest achievable quality with our customer being at the forefront of our minds. We build homes to be proud of.”

NHBC Chief Executive Steve Wood added:

“Launched nearly 40 years ago, Pride in the Job has been instrumental in driving up the quality of new homes. Despite the challenges the industry has faced in recent times, this year’s winners have kept their focus on delivering high quality new homes for their customers.

“A site manager’s role is undoubtedly one of the toughest in house building and their drive for excellence is very much at the heart of the competition. Receiving a Quality Award is a great achievement for any site manager. It’s no surprise that Pride in the Job winning sites have higher levels of customer satisfaction as these homes are without doubt among the best the UK has to offer.

“Congratulations to all the 2019 Quality Award winners.”

Chris Endsor, Chief Executive of Miller Homes concluded:

“Being recognised with a Pride in the Job Quality Award is a tremendous accolade for any site manager and is richly deserved by each of our winners, who have demonstrated a consistent and committed approach to on-site standards of quality and safety in the building of our new homes.   We are very proud of their achievements and wish them all the very best for the next stages of the competition.”

The next round of the competition will be held in the Autumn, when all the Quality Award winners have the opportunity to win a Seal of Excellence as well as competing for the Regional title in their respective areas.  The regional winners will then go on to compete for the national Supreme Award in their categories at the Pride in the Job Gala Dinner, taking place in London on 24 January 2020.
