Three Taylor Wimpey site managers win prestigious national housebuilding award
Three site managers from Taylor Wimpey’s East Scotland developments have won a highly regarded national housebuilding accolade, the Pride in the Job Quality Award.
Over its 43-year history, the award has gained a reputation for its stringent judging process, which has resulted in 443 winners out of 8,000 site managers across the UK this year. The award honours managers who display exceptional dedication to building premium-quality homes.
Gavin Bianchi (Sinclair Gardens, Roslin), Mitchell Davies (Spencer Fields, Inverkeithing), and Nathan Dunlop (West Craigs, Edinburgh) are Taylor Wimpey East Scotland’s NHBC (National House Building Council) Pride in the Job Quality Award winners. The trio has qualified for the Scottish regional finals of the awards, which aims to identify the leading site manager in Scotland.
Each site manager is assessed across six key areas – consistency, attention to detail, leadership, interpretation of drawings and specifications, technical expertise and health and safety. Thousands of site inspections and meticulous scoring and verifications have taken place to decide the winning site managers. Each of these Quality Award winners will now go on to compete for Seal of Excellence and Regional Awards in the autumn, with the national Supreme Award winners unveiled in January 2024.
Tommy Stirling, production director for Taylor Wimpey East Scotland, said: “We remain committed to maintaining the highest levels of quality and customer service, and we continue to be an NHBC award-winning homebuilder year after year.
“These individual awards are thoroughly deserved and we’re incredibly proud that we have some of the best site managers in Scotland.
“This year two of our winners – Mitchell and Gavin – are picking up their second and third Pride in the Job Awards respectively, while Nathan has secured his first award. Each site manager’s success demonstrates our drive to deliver the highest levels of quality, service commitment to our customers right across the east of Scotland.”
Steve Wood, CEO at the NHBC, said: “Congratulations to all the winners who should feel proud to have received a Pride in the Job Award. Pride in the Job is firmly at the heart of NHBC’s mission to raise standards in the housing industry.
“It is important we recognise the vital role site managers play in ensuring new homes are delivered on time, on safe sites and to exacting construction quality standards.”
