Alongside the good news that Barratt Homes is back building and selling homes in Leicestershire, a Site Manager has won a top national award for quality from the National House Building Council (NHBC).
Martyn Griffiths (31) has won a prestigious NHBC Pride in the Job Quality award for his work onsite at Grange View in Hugglescote.
Originally from Stoke-on-Trent, Martyn has worked for Barratt Homes for six years.
On celebrating his first Pride in the Job Quality award, Martyn said: “It feels great to be recognised by the NHBC. This is a prestigious award that I think most Site Managers aspire to achieve, so to get one feels really special.
“We have built up a great team at Grange View and we all work well together to go above and beyond what is required to build great quality homes. This is the third development I have started with Barratt Homes and I find it really rewarding taking a site from a piece of land, to getting set up properly and building peoples’ dream homes.
“I’d like to thank all of my sub-contractors and direct labour team, as well as the senior management at Barratt Homes North Midlands for all their support.”
Now in their 40th year, the awards – considered to be the “Oscars of the housebuilding industry” – recognise the very best Site Managers from around the country.
In total, parent company Barratt Developments’ Site Managers won 92 Pride in the Job Quality awards this year, more than every other housebuilder. Barratt has now won more Pride in the Job Quality awards for 16 years in a row, a record unmatched in the industry which shows its commitment to building homes of the highest quality.
Each Site Manager is judged on a range of key criteria including health and safety, their technical knowledge, customer service and attention to detail. Pride in the Job is the most highly regarded competition in the housebuilding industry with just 450 individual winners being chosen from over 11,000 entrants.
Mark Cotes, Managing Director at Barratt Homes North Midlands, said: “Now that we are back building and selling homes again, it is great to see that Martyn has been rated amongst the very best Site Managers in the country.
“It’s now more important than ever that customers have confidence in the homes they are buying, and the mark of a Pride in the Job Quality award shows that their home has been built to the highest of standards. We are very proud to have won more of these quality awards than any other housebuilder for 16 years in a row.”
