NHBC names Harlow builder as one of UK’s best housebuilders in leading awards

Pride in the Job awards scheme celebrates its 40th anniversary

NHBC, the UK’s leading new home warranty and insurance provider has named Stephen White of Countryside Partnerships South in the first round of its flagship competition for their site in Harlow, South East region. The competition is dedicated to recognising site managers who achieve the highest standards in house building.

450 UK site managers have won a Quality Award in the first round of NHBC’s Pride in the Job Awards 2020, representing the top 4% of the eleven thousand site managers that entered. Being selected as one of the UK’s top site managers is testament to their commitment to delivering quality homes for their customers.

Now in its 40th year, Pride in the Job is the most highly regarded competition in the house building industry. Judging for the Awards is rigorous, beginning in July 2019, with each site manager assessed across six key areas: consistency, attention to detail, leadership, interpretation of drawings and specifications, technical expertise and health and safety.

Over four decades, Pride in the Job has been at the heart of NHBC’s core purpose to support the delivery of high-quality homes. By recognising the very best site managers across the UK, showcasing best practice and rewarding excellence, the competition celebrates the vital role that site managers play in ensuring new homes are delivered on time, on safe sites and to exacting construction quality standards.

Recent NHBC research has revealed a direct link between homeowner satisfaction on Pride in the Job award-winning sites compared to non award-winning sites. The Home Builders Federation Customer Satisfaction Survey results from 2015 to 2019 show that over 92% of homeowners on winning sites would recommend their builder, compared with 85% on non award-winning sites. This increases to 95% on regional award-winning sites.

Subject to our team of judges being able to visit sites over the next two months, Stephen White will go on to compete for Seal of Excellence and Regional Awards that are planned to be announced at a series of virtual events in the autumn, with the Supreme Award winners unveiled in 2021.

Commenting on the Awards, NHBC Regional Director Cassandra Codling said: “Pride in the Job has been pivotal in improving the quality of new homes for decades and it’s fantastic to be able to celebrate its 40th anniversary. Despite the numerous challenges the industry has faced in recent times, the very best site managers of 2020 have kept their focus on delivering high quality new homes for their customers.

“A site manager’s role can be tough, at times perhaps one of the most challenging in house building and their constant drive for excellence is very much at the heart of the competition. Receiving a Quality Award is a great achievement for any site manager. It’s no surprise that 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.

“Congratulations to Stephen White and all the 2020 Quality Award winners in the South East region – be proud of your incredible achievements!”
