Site managers are uniquely positioned to influence the quality of new homes, being responsible for managing a site from beginning to end. The 450 individuals shortlisted for a Quality Award or Single Home Commendation can justifiably claim to be in the top few percent of their profession.

Mike Quinton, Chief Executive of NHBC, the UK's leading standards setter and warranty provider for new UK homes, said:

"Winning a Pride in the Job Award is a major achievement for any site manager. These people are at the top of their game, ensuring that the homes they help create are of the highest standards. Each of our award recipients can be truly proud of this accolade."

"For over three decades, Pride in the Job has been a foundation of NHBC's work to improve housing standards, encouraging best practice on site. The homes these individuals have built are without doubt among the best in the UK."

The winners were shortlisted from around 13,000 site managers working on NHBC-registered sites, having excelled in a comprehensive year-long judging process, assessed against the stringent criteria defined by NHBC's technical Standards for building new homes.

Regional Winners will be announced at ceremonies in the autumn, with the victors progressing to the Gala Final in London in January, hoping to become their category's Supreme champion.
