A senior project manager at David Wilson Homes’ Tenchlee Place development in Hall Green has won a top national award for the quality of homes he is building.

Ian Green (55) has won a Pride in the Job Quality Award from the National Housebuilding Council (NHBC), marking him down as among the very best in the country.

Across the country, site managers working for David Wilson Homes’ parent company, Barratt Developments, have won 96 Pride in the Job Quality Awards in total this year. This is the 19th year in a row that Barratt Developments site managers have won more of these awards than any other housebuilder.

Ian, from Loughborough in Leicestershire, who has been working for David Wilson Homes for a total of 12 years, and now oversees the construction at the Shaftmoor Lane development in Hall Green.

This is his 15th Pride in the Job Quality Award, and he has also previously won nine Seals of Excellence, and two Regional Awards during his career.

Ian said: “It’s always a great feeling to be recognised with an award, and the win for Tenchlee Place, a new site for us in Birmingham, makes it even more special this year.

“It’s a busy and demanding job, but the award is a testament to everyone’s excellent work, even with the high volume of completions undertaken in recent months. We’re proud to work on an award-winning development, and it’s something we’ll celebrate as a team.”

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.

A Barratt Developments site manager, Kirk Raine, was named as the Supreme Winner of last year’s NHBC Pride in the Job Quality Awards. In January this year, Kirk was crowned as the winner in the Large Builder category for his work managing The Grove at Doseley Park, near Telford. This is the sixth time that a site manager working for Barratt Developments has won the Supreme award in the past eight years.

Dominic Harman, Managing Director at David Wilson Homes Mercia, said: “It’s great news for our customers and the business that Ian has won a prestigious Pride in the Job Quality Award.

“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 very proud to have won more of these awards than any other housebuilder for 19 years in a row now.”

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