NHBC Pride in the Job award winners

Yet again we are proud to announce that we have won more Pride in the Job awards than any other housebuilder, including the prestigious Supreme award for the second year running.

NHBC Pride in the Job is the home-building industry’s most prestigious awards programme, dedicated to recognising Site Managers who achieve the highest standards in quality home-building. A Pride in the Job award is the highest industry accolade a site manager can receive.

Each year as part of the awards, the NHBC join with leading experts in the home-building industry to rigorously judge over 16,000 Site Managers across the nation. Winning a Pride in the Job award requires consistently high scoring across a variety of categories, including:

  • Quality of workmanship at every stage of the build process, including foundations, roofs, surface finishes and external works
  • Leadership skills, which are reflected by a high level of morale and motivation on site
  • Technical expertise and their ability to resolve issues on site
  • A certain ‘X’ factor that sets them apart from their peers

From this marking process, 430 Site Managers receive quality awards and are therefore eligible to receive one or more of the next stage of the awards.

We are proud to announce that 79 of our Site Managers were awarded NHBC Pride in the Job 2016-17 titles. That's more than any other homebuilder for the 12th year in a row.  

Our 79 Site Managers won a total of 110 Pride in the Job Awards. Pride in the Job has 4 levels of award, and our Site Managers achieved the following:

80 x Quality Awards

These are presented to just the best 430 site managers across the country in the single home, small, medium, large and multi-storey builder categories

23 x Seals of Excellence

The Seal of Excellence awards follow the initial quality awards where by 130 site managers are announced winners, with the winners split by region. Our site managers achieved 23 Seals of Excellence.

6 x Regional Best Site Managers

From each region of the Seal of Excellence award, one winner is selected from each of the five builder categories, which are single home, small, medium, large and multi-storey. Martin Beard from Hanham Hall, Bristol, and Kirk Raine from Webbs Meadow, Telford, were both named Best Regional Site Manager for their regions in the NHBC’s Large Builder category.

1 x Supreme Winner in the Large Builder category

One Supreme Winner is chosen from the regional winners of each of the five builder categories, and this prestigious award recognises the highest level of quality. The title of Supreme Winner is awarded to just five site managers nationwide. We are delighted that Russell Bond, Site Manager for our Aldgate Place development in Aldgate, was awarded the ultimate accolade of Supreme Winner in the Multi Storey Builder category. 

We are also extremely proud to recognise the runner up of the same category for their achievements based at another Barratt Developments’ site, Newbury Racecourse. Site Manager, Mark Pinder of Midgard Ltd, came runner-up for his contribution and exceptional dedication to quality.

NHBC is the UK’s leading standard-setting body for new homes, and this achievement reflects our ongoing commitment to raising the standards.

We're a five-star quality award-winning homebuilder

Each year the Home Builders Federation conducts an independent customer satisfaction survey. Customers are asked ‘Would you recommend your builder to a friend?’ and homebuilders are awarded a star rating from one to five based on the answers given.

We have once again been awarded the maximum five stars, and are the only major national home builder to achieve this every year since 2009. Knowing that over 90% of our homeowners would recommend us to their friends* allows us to continue our work providing some of the best new homes in the UK.

* The 90% percentage is based on the number of valid responses received. The HBF Star Rating Scheme is open to HBF members who typically build more than 300 homes per year. It is a voluntary scheme so only those builders who opt to participate will be star rated.
