Four local building site managers secure a top industry accolade

Four site managers, who are building new homes in Nottinghamshire, have won a prestigious national award for their work at Bellway housing developments. 

Site managers, Dave Monk, Gary Archer, Steve Pearson, and Dave Pringle have been named as the winner of a National House-Building Council (NHBC) Pride in the Job Quality Award for his ‘excellence in site management’.


Winners of NHBC’s Pride in the Job awards were announced on Friday 19 June, with fewer than 450 site managers out of 11,000 across the UK being honoured with the prestigious industry accolade.

The awards scheme, which celebrates its 40th anniversary this year, recognises site managers who demonstrate excellence and commitment to producing homes of outstanding quality.

Dave Monk, site manager at Bellway’s Liberty development, off Chalfront Drive in Nottingham, said: “This is the fourth year in a row I have won the award and I never tire of the feeling it gives me. Winning shows how much we care for the product we produce and the whole site team, including the contractors, work so hard to make sure the product is the best we can do.”

Dave Pringle, who is site manager at The Hall, off Melton Road in Edwalton, has also received a Pride in the Job award for the past four years.

He said: “Winning the award is a great feeling, not just for me but for the whole workforce who have helped me to achieve it. Bellway is a fantastic company to work for, and they do a brilliant job at encouraging their site teams to work hard and do their very best.”


Steve Pearson, site manager at Berry Hill, off Sherwood Way East in Mansfield, said: “It is an honour to win again this year. This is an excellent achievement for everyone involved. We could not have won the award without the help of all the workers at the site. It is a real team effort.”

Gary Archer, site manager at Bellway’s Sherwood Gate, off Papplewick Lane in Linby, said: “I’m so pleased to have won this award for the fifth consecutive year. This is proof that we continue to build new homes which met the highest standards of construction and workmanship.

“Getting everything right is really important to the whole team and I take real pride in hearing how happy our new residents are with the homes we’ve built for them.”


“Winning this award is a real team effort, so I'd like to thank everyone on site for all their hard work and support."


Over the course of nearly a year, site managers across the UK have been observed and judged by NHBC officials.

The judging process for the Pride in the Job awards takes in a multitude of criteria, including consistency, leadership skills, attention to detail, interpretation, technical skills and health and safety.

The site managers, along with other Quality Award winners, will now be put forward for a Seal of Excellence award, with winners being announced at NHBC’s Regional Awards events in Autumn 2020.

Lee Wilkinson, Construction Director for Bellway East Midlands, said: “Winning an NHBC Pride in the Job award is a huge accomplishment in this industry, and we are very proud of our site managers and their teams, as we feel they are truly deserving of this honour. “
