Bellway site manager is top builder in the East

A site manager in Nottingham has been named the best builder in the East of England for the second year in a row.

Dave Monk - who is based at Bellway’s Liberty development off Chalfont Drive – has won the National House-Building Council’s (NHBC) East Regional Award in the Large Housebuilder category of the Pride in the Job Awards.

Earlier this year, Dave’s commitment to delivering the highest quality homes saw him awarded a Quality Award from the NHBC, which meant he was one of the 68 site managers in the East of England shortlisted for a Seal of Excellence.

His Seal of Excellence win, announced at the Regional Awards ceremony held in Leicester on Friday (September 13) was topped by winning the highest award in his category – and means he’ll go on to compete against the winners from nine other regions in the national finals in January.

Dave, who lives in Pinxton, said:

“I am over the moon about winning the Regional Award this year. It was amazing to win it last year, and I didn’t think it would necessarily happen again so soon!

“Having said that, the standard of construction on site is as high as it has ever been and I’m really proud of everyone’s attention to detail and their focus on getting everything just right for our customers here.

“I’d like to thank the whole team at Liberty for their hard work and support. This award isn’t just for me, it is for all of us.

“The fact that this is the second year running we have won this award shows how committed we are to produce the highest quality of homes.”

Judging for the awards begins a year before the announcement of the first round of winners and each site manager is assessed across 44 areas of site management. This includes spot checks on the day-to-day running of their site, testing their technical knowledge, looking at the consistency of the build process and checking the quality controls they have in place.

As a regional winner, Dave and Bellway’s Liberty development is now in the country’s top ten. A national winner will be chosen from those ten in January.
