NHBC Pride in the Job award winners

We^ have won an incredible 84 Pride in the Job Awards for 2019, more than any other national housebuilder for the 15th year in a row.

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 450 Site Managers receive quality awards.


NHBC has been recognising and rewarding the best site managers in the UK for the last 37 years and is regarded as the highest industry accolade a Site Manager can receive. This year’s winners were selected from more than 16,000 sites across the UK.

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