Quality job is recognised in top award

Solihull Editorial 25th Sep, 2022   0

A SITE manager from Solihull, who is overseeing work on a housing development in Hampton Magna, has won a top award.

Adam Jones has been given a Quality Award in the National House Building Council’s (NHBC) Pride in the Job competition.

Winning the award means Adam, who lives in Shirley, has been recognised among the top five per cent of site managers in the country, with only 443 winners picked from a field of more than 8,000 candidates.

He is responsible for the new homes at Bellway’s Hampton Trove development.

The 34-year-old said: “It is a genuine honour to have had my and my team’s work at Hampton Trove over the last 12 months recognised by the NHBC, and to have received my first Pride in the Job Quality Award.

“Both my father and grandfather were site managers, so it is a great feeling to be following in their footsteps and pursuing a career that has a rich history in my family.

“While I have been recognised for this award, it is very much a team effort. Myself, my assistant site manager, as well as all the forklift drivers and groundwork team all contribute to what is an efficient and well-run team at this site, which I am proud to be a part of.

“With work now at the halfway stage at Hampton Trove, I am looking forward to overseeing the next phase of building works on site, and to maintaining the high level of consistency we’ve achieved so far to work towards more NHBC awards in the future.”

Simon Hudson, construction director of Bellway south Midlands, said: “Adam and his team have consistently demonstrated their excellence in delivering new homes to our customers over the past 12 months and Bellway is extremely proud of and grateful for his efforts, resulting in the Quality Award he has been deservingly given by NHBC. We would wish Adam all the very best for the next stage of the NHBC awards this year, as he progresses to the Seal of Excellence phase of judging.”

The winners of the awards were revealed after a 12-month judging process by officials from the NHBC.

The Pride in the Job Awards were established more than 40 years ago to recognise the work of exceptional site managers in the UK, to drive excellence and maintain standards in the industry.
