THREE house build­ing site man­agers were crowned win­ners in the North­ern Ire­land fi­nals of the NHBC Pride in the Job Awards 2018 at a cer­e­mony held at The Cul­lo­den Es­tate and Spa, Belfast last week.

Now in their 38th year, the awards or­gan­ised by NHBC, the UK’S lead­ing war­ranty and in­sur­ance provider for new homes, are the most highly re­garded in the house- build­ing in­dus­try.

They recog­nise and re­ward a site man­ager’s ded­i­ca­tion to achiev­ing the high­est stan­dards in house build­ing, and their com­mit­ment to build­ing homes of out­stand­ing qual­ity.

Richard Morrow from Vaughan De­vel­op­ments Ltd was named Small Builder cat­e­gory win­ner for the Hill­tops de­vel­op­ment in Lis­burn. Richard is no stranger to win­ning NHBC Pride in the Job awards hav­ing pre­vi­ously claimed the Re­gional Win­ner ti­tle twice be­fore.

Jim Porter from Porter & Co won the Medium Builder cat­e­gory for Port­more Hall in Crum­lin. Com­ment­ing on what he en­joys most about his job, Jim said: “I get great plea­sure in lead­ing a good team of work­ers and build­ing homes of high stan­dards for our cus­tomers.”

Wayne Ben­nett from M M M De­sign & Build Ltd was crowned the multi- storey cat­e­gory win­ner for the ‘ Tha­lassa’ coastal apart­ments in Ban­gor. This is Wayne’s first ever year of win­ning a Pride in the Job award, and to reach the re­gional award level as a first time win­ner is an ex­cel­lent achieve­ment.

A fur­ther five site man­agers across North­ern Ire­land were awarded with a Seal of Ex­cel­lence at the cer­e­mony hav­ing gained a Qual­ity Award in the first round of the com­pe­ti­tion in June:

These in­cluded: Thomas Crutch­ley from J H Price & Sons for Lau­rel Bank in Moneyreagh, New­tow­nards; Stephen David­son from Boland Reilly Homes Ltd for St An­drews Point in Bal­ly­hal­bert; An­drew John­ston from Antrim Con­struc­tion Com­pany Ltd for Porter Green in Larne; Alan Ly­nas from Porter & Co for Sad­dlers Hall in Hills­bor­ough and Conor Maguire from Alskea Ltd for Chantry Gar­dens in Greenis­land.

The North­ern Ire­land re­gional win­ners will now go on to com­pete for the ul­ti­mate ti­tle in house build­ing, Supreme Award Win­ners, to be un­veiled at a gala cer­e­mony in Jan­uary 2019.
