Site Manager receives NHBC Pride in the Job Quality Award
Luxury independent retirement developer Adlington is delighted to announce that one of its site managers has been awarded a prestigious NHBC Pride in the Job Quality Award.
Winners of NHBC’s Pride in the Job 2016 awards have been honoured for their dedication to building homes of outstanding quality in the first round of the competition.
Widely recognised as the Oscars of the house-building sector, Simon Pallent has scooped the award for the North East region, after working at the Adlington House development on Bridge Street, Otley for the last 15 months.
He competed against 16,000 other hopefuls from across the country to claim one of 445 regional quality awards that recognise the contribution from site managers in producing high quality new homes.
Commenting on the Awards, Mike Quinton, Chief Executive of NHBC, said: “Congratulations to all the 2016 Quality Award winners – the strength of this year’s entries coupled with the judges’ long and hard deliberation over selecting 445 winner from 16,000 site managers should give great pride to them all and their teams
“For 36 years, our Pride in the Job Awards have played a pivotal role in NHBC’s work to raise standards across the industry through the celebration and sharing of best practice.
“Pride in the Job rewards those site managers who produce the best new homes which are built and finished to the highest possible standard. Most importantly, homeowners who buy a Pride in the Job award-winning home benefit from a high quality product.
“It’s no surprise that our data shows Pride in the Job winning sites have higher levels of customer satisfaction as these homes are without doubt among the best the UK has to offer.
“On behalf of everyone at NHBC, I would like to congratulate them on the wonderful achievement.”
As part of the judging, Simon will now go through to compete for the Seal of Excellence and regional awards in their categories.
Commenting, Simon said: “I am pleased that all of the work at our Otley development has been acknowledged by the NHBC and I could not be happier. Putting plans in place to progress a £12m project like Adlington House in Otley does take meticulous planning from the outset, but without the right team in place it would not have been possible. I am, therefore, dedicating the award to everyone who played their part in bringing this site together, to budget and working towards our deadline.”
Adlington House, which will host 48 one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments will open later this year and will be soon at the point of launching show apartments to view.
