Inspiring Business by Sharing Success



Two David Wilson Homes site managers have each earned a prestigious award for the high-quality properties being built in Leicestershire.

The National House Building Council (NHBC) has recognised Alex Coltman and Ben Jones for their site management capabilities with a Seal of Excellence Award, which is a top industry accolade.

Alex, who has been working for David Wilson Homes for the past 26 years, currently oversees the progress of the housebuilder’s Grange View development in Hugglescote.

He said:

"Winning a top industry prize always carries a profound sense of achievement for me. It’s a testament to the passion and dedication of my team, and I am very grateful for hard work they have put in over the past year.”

Ben, who has spent five out of the past eight years working for David Wilson Homes and managing its Wigston Meadows development in Wigston, has achieved his second Seal of Excellence Award.

He said:

“I’m absolutely delighted to receive another Seal of Excellence Award. It truly underscores the power of teamwork, and none of this would have been possible without the support of my amazing colleagues.”

To win a Seal of Excellence, Site Managers are marked against key criteria such as technical expertise, health and safety, consistency, leadership and attention to detail. The awards celebrate the vital role Site Managers play in ensuring new homes are delivered on-time, on safe sites and to the highest quality standards.

Having won a Pride in the Job Quality Award earlier in the year, the Seal of Excellence achievement marks an excellent year of achievements for Alex and Ben.

Rachael Harrison, Sales Director at David Wilson Homes East Midlands, said:

“It’s truly gratifying to see Alex and Ben’s hard work and dedication recognised with the Seal of Excellence.

“They have shown exceptional leadership and a commitment to delivering high-quality properties in Leicestershire, and this is a fantastic reward for their unwavering efforts. I also want to acknowledge the entire team behind these successes, as it's a testament to their dedication and expertise.

“This recognition not only reflects their individual excellence but also highlights the overall high standards we maintain at David Wilson Homes.”

This is the 19th year in a row that parent company, Barratt Developments, has won more Pride in the Job awards than any other housebuilder, which demonstrates that its housing developments and the Site Managers that oversee them are among the very best in the business.
