Barratt site managers named UK’s most exceptional at NHBC awards

Three site managers from Barratt and David Wilson Homes’ Southampton division have won a top national award for quality from the National House Building Council (NHBC).

Phil Cripps and Gary Bickel, two site managers at Barratt Homes’ Saxon Corner development in Emsworth and New Quarter development in Bordon respectively, each won an NHBC Pride in the Job Award at a virtual ceremony on 6th November. Phil then progressed to win an NHBC Seal of Excellence and Gary won the NHBC Quality. A third colleague, Matt Annalls, site manager at David Wilson’s Madgwick Park development in Chichester, also won an NHBC Seal of Excellence.

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.

Barratt has now won more Pride in the Jobs 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.

Jon Green, managing director at Barratt and David Wilson’s Southampton division, said: “These awards are highly coveted by those in the industry and considered to be the “Oscars of the housebuilding industry”. The awards demonstrate the pride and passion that all three team members each have in the job they do – building quality homes to customers, for life.

“It is great to see that our site managers are rated as amongst the very best in the country for the high quality of the homes they deliver. It is 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.”
