Pride in the Job judging process Fair, transparent and independent

Pride in the Job is fair, transparent and consistent. All the judges, including the independent panel, use the same comprehensive marking sheet, scoring site managers against the same pre-set criteria.

Judging the early rounds

There are robust processes for moderating and verifying scores at all stages of the competition. Quality Awards are selected by NHBC Building Inspectors and Inspection Managers. Seals of Excellence are chosen by Regional Directors with Regional Awards decided by the Regional Directors and the independent panel.

The Supreme Award judging panel

The Supreme Award judging panel consists of four NHBC regional directors and two independent judges, each of whom has many years of experience in the house building industry at senior level. Each Regional Award winning site manager in the small, medium, large and multi-storey categories is visited and assessed by members of the panel.
