Site manager named as one of best in the country

The site manager at a new housing development at Wichelstowe, Swindon, has won a top national award for the quality of homes he’s building at Orchards Rise.

Clyde Cocking from Barratt David Wilson Homes South West has won the National House Building Council’s (NHBC) prestigious Pride in the Job Award, marking them down as among the very best in the country.

This is the 19th year in a row that site managers from Barratt David Wilson Homes have won more of these awards than any other housebuilder. This achievement underlines just how important the housebuilder sees building high quality homes and its long-term commitment to being the best in the industry.

The awards rate site managers 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.

Every site manager who is registered with the NHBC is automatically entered into the awards, with just 450 winners being selected from over 11,000 entrants, showing how difficult they are to win.    

Ralph Hawkins, managing director for Barratt David Wilson Homes South West, said: “The awards showcase what it takes to be a top site manager and demonstrates our long-term commitment to looking after our customers and building high quality homes. We are extremely proud of Clyde’s achievements at Orchards Rise and of our record of winning more of these awards than any other housebuilder for 19 years in a row now.”

These awards closely follow Barratt Developments being awarded 5 stars by its customers for satisfaction in the annual Home Builders Federation (HBF) new homes survey. To be rated 5 star means that more than 90% of its customers would recommend one of its homes to a friend, with Barratt being the only major national housebuilder to be rated 5 star for 14 years in a row.
