Dave said: “Each award is just as special as the last and I missed out in 2020, so it’s great to be back in the club and recognised once again.

“It’s been a difficult year for many people in the current climate so it’s really nice to have this achievement to celebrate everyone’s hard work.

“Everyone’s played their part but I’d like to thank George Young, assistant site manager, and Daryl Marshall, contracts manager, for their support.”

These awards, now in their 41st year, 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.
