NHBC Pride in the Job award winners

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.

NHBC Pride in the Job

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.

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.

We have once again been awarded the maximum five stars from the House Builders Federation*, and are the only major national home builder to achieve this every year since 2010. 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.
