NHBC Pride in the Job Awards 2022 celebrate the UK’s best site managers

NHBC is delighted to announce the Pride in the Job 2022 Quality Award winners. This flagship competition celebrates the very best UK site managers and their dedication to raising standards in house building.

From a field of more than 8,000 site managers, 443 have been honoured with a Quality Award. This represents the top 5% of those entered into the competition and is testament to their commitment to the delivery of top-quality new homes.

Pride in the Job, first launched more than forty years ago, is the most highly regarded competition in the house-building industry and a prestigious benchmark for exceptional site managers.

Judging for the Awards is rigorous, with the current competition beginning in July last year and each site manager assessed across six key areas: consistency, attention to detail, leadership, interpretation of drawings and specifications, technical expertise and health and safety. Thousands of site inspections and meticulous scoring and verification have taken place to decide the winners.

Pride in the Job is at the heart of NHBC’s core purpose to raise standards in house building. By recognising the very best site managers across the UK, the competition celebrates the vital role they play in ensuring new homes are delivered on time, on safe sites and to exacting construction quality standards.

The competition has three categories for different sized businesses: small, medium and large house builders, plus a multi-storey category for site managers working on projects of five storeys or more for multiple occupancy.

Commenting on the Awards, NHBC Chief Executive Steve Wood said: “For more than 40 years, Pride in the Job has been an important part of our work to help drive construction quality. Winning site managers tell us that it inspires them to give a little extra and to strive harder for ever-higher standards in house building. 

“At NHBC we believe that the calibre of the site manager and the way they inspire their site team has the greatest influence on the quality of the finished home. By promoting friendly rivalry, showcasing best practice and rewarding excellence, Pride in the Job supports the delivery of homes of the highest quality.

“Congratulations to all the Pride in the Job 2022 Quality Award winners. They are an inspiration to us all and should be very proud of the quality of new homes they are creating.”

The Quality Award winners will go on to compete for Seal of Excellence and Regional Awards in the autumn, with the national Supreme Award winners unveiled in January 2023.
