Leicestershire Site Manager names as best in country for quality

A Site Manager overseeing the construction of Barratt Homes’ Grange View development in Hugglescote has won a top national award for the quality of the homes being built on site.

Martyn Griffiths (35) has won a Pride in the Job award from the National House Building Council (NHBC), an award known as the ‘Oscars’ of the housebuilding industry.

In total, site managers working for Barratt Homes’ parent company, Barratt Developments, have won 89 Pride in the Job awards this year alone – more than any other housebuilder.

This is the 20th year in a row that Barratt Developments has won the most Pride in the Job awards, having accumulated more than 1,500 individual accolades over the years. This achievement underlines just how important building high quality homes has been to the developer over the last two decades.

Martyn has been dedicated to Barratt and David Wilson Homes for a decade. His exemplary dedication is evident through the numerous accolades he has received from the NHBC, including three quality awards.

Reflecting on his achievement, Martyn said:

“It feels really nice to be recognised by the NHBC again, and it gives the whole team something to be proud of. One of the key reasons why we have been successful is due to our effort to maintain consistent quality across the site.

“I would like to thank my Contract Manager, Joel Wood, my assistant site manager, Ryan Palmer, and of course all of my colleagues and senior management at Barratt and David Wilson Homes North Midlands for their continued support, that I couldn’t succeed without.”

The awards recognise the very best site managers across the country, with over 8,000 being entered into the awards annually. Each is judged on a strict criterion including technical expertise, health and safety, leadership and attention to detail.

The competition is at the heart of raising standards in housebuilding, with the awards showcasing the role site managers play in ensuring much-needed new homes are delivered on time, on safe sites, and to the highest quality standards.

With site managers passing on their skills and industry knowledge to their teams and mentoring assistant site managers, the awards help to drive up quality standards across the industry.

Mark Cotes, Managing Director at Barratt Homes North Midlands, said:

“We’re so proud of Martyn for achieving this prestigious Pride in the Job Quality award. It’s amazing news for both the team at Grange View and for our customers.

“To have won more awards than any other housebuilder for 20 years in a row is an incredible achievement, and underlines our commitment to building the very best new homes for our customers.”

Earlier this year Barratt Homes also achieved a five-star rating from its customers in the HBF Customer Satisfaction Survey, which recognises both build quality and excellence in customer care. This is the 15th year in a row that the developer’s customers have rated it as a five-star housebuilder, with more than 90% of its customers saying they would recommend it to a friend.
