A senior site manager for McCarthy and Stone’s Keerford View in Carnforth, is celebrating after picking up the coveted Pride in the Job Quality Award from the National House Builders’ Council (NHBC).

Now in its 38th year, the Pride in the Job Awards recognise site managers across the country who are at the top of their profession and are creating homes of an outstandingly high standard. Chris was selected as one of 450 winners, from around 16,000 site managers.

The judging process for the awards is extremely rigorous. As well as undergoing spot checks of the day-to-day running of their site, each site manager is assessed across many areas, including technical knowledge, consistency in the build process, leadership, and organisational skills. Only those who demonstrate exceptional standards and outstanding quality are presented with an award.

Commenting on his awards success, Chris Wylde said: “At McCarthy and Stone, quality and attention to detail are embedded in the company culture; and, as such, everyone works together to deliver a completed development that we can all be incredibly proud of.

“I’ve been working with McCarthy and Stone for the past four years, and have enjoyed working with a fantastic team. This award is a massive achievement, not just for myself and my assistant Stuart Nicholls but for all of the team on the ground including design, management and subcontractors.

“We’ve all worked really hard, so it’s great to see this recognised.”

A total of 20 McCarthy and Stone site managers have received a Pride in the Job Quality Award this year – the largest number of awards ever received by the company. This unprecedented result marks a 33 per cent increase in the number of awards the company won last year, and is the highest number of awards of any listed UK housebuilder in relation to their legal completions.

Iain Fleming, Construction Director for McCarthy and Stone North West, said: “The professionalism and dedication of our site managers ensures that our developments consistently meet the highest quality standards, and I am thrilled that Chris has been recognised for his commitment to excellence – from the start to the finish of the build programme. “
