NHBC announces winners of Pride in the Job Awards 2021


The NHBC has announced this year’s winners of its flagship Pride in the Job Awards, recognising site managers who have achieved the highest standards in housebuilding across the UK

Pride in the Job Awards, first launched over forty years ago, is the most highly regarded competition in the housebuilding industry.

Judging for the Awards is rigorous, with the current competition beginning in July 2020 and each site manager assessed across six key areas: consistency, attention to detail, leadership, interpretation of drawings and specifications, technical expertise, and health and safety.

From a field of more than 10,000, 450 site managers have won a Quality Award in the first round of NHBC’s Pride in the Job Awards 2021.

This represents the top 5% of those who entered and is a testament to their commitment to delivering quality homes for their customers.

By recognising the very best site managers across the UK, 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.

The competition has three categories for different sized businesses: small, medium and large housebuilders, plus a multi-storey category for site managers working on projects of five storeys or more.

The Quality Award winners will go on to compete for Seal of Excellence and Regional Awards in the autumn, with the national, Supreme Award winners unveiled in January 2022.

Setting standards

NHBC chief executive Steve Wood, said: “Pride in the Job has been pivotal in improving the quality of new homes for more than 40 years.

“Despite the numerous challenges the industry has faced, the very best site managers of 2021 have remained focused on delivering high-quality new homes for their customers.

“At NHBC we are very proud of Pride in the Job, what it stands for and the impact it has across the sector. Pride in the Job winning sites have higher levels of homeowner satisfaction as these homes are among the very best in the country.

“Congratulations to all the 2021 Pride in the Job Quality Award winners – be proud of what you are building and the standards you are setting.”
