Barratt Homes site manager wins NHBC Award for top quality work in Staffordshire

A Barratt Homes Site Manager in Tamworth has been recognised for his construction excellence after winning a prestigious Seal of Excellence award in the National Housebuilding Council (NHBC) Pride in the Job awards.

Ian Crockford (63), originally from Wolverhampton, has earned the esteemed accolade for the exemplary standards he sets at his development Dunstall Park on Meadow Road.

Having won his fourth Pride in the Job Quality award earlier in the year, the Seal of Excellence completes a fantastic year of personal achievements for Ian, in his 11th year with the leading developer.

He said:

“In these difficult times, I am glad to have been rewarded by the NHBC.

“My favourite part of the job is getting up in the morning to go and work on the site. I’ve been in the industry for over 30 years and I always encourage development and passing on my experience to the team.

“I want to thank the entire site team for their work as a cohesive unit. We wouldn’t be able to provide the high-quality homes that we do without their hard work.”

Whilst the Seal of Excellence is the highest industry accolade a Site Manager can achieve; Ian added the award has given his team even more drive to maintain the high standards set at Dunstall Park.

Celebrating a 40th anniversary this year, the Pride in the Job awards - considered to be the “Oscars of the housebuilding industry” - recognise the best run sites in the country.

Each Site Manager is judged on a range of key criteria including health and safety, their technical knowledge, customer service and attention to detail.

Adrian Evans, Managing Director at Barratt Homes West Midlands, said:

“We’re thrilled for Ian following his Seal of Excellence recognition and the award is a credit to his hard work at Dunstall Park.”

“At Barratt Homes, we pride ourselves on our high standards of housebuilding but this applies to our staff as well, who we work with very closely.

“By employing excellent team players, we can ensure that our trademark high quality is maintained across all of our sites and Ian is certainly no exception here.”

There is currently a selection of two, three, and four bedroom homes available at Dunstall Park, with prices starting from £206,995.
