Local MSP visits Barratt development to mark site manager’s award win
Barratt Developments welcomed local MSP Colin Beattie to its Pentland View development in Midlothian to celebrate its site manager’s Pride in the Job Quality Award win.
Shaun Quinn, site manager at Pentland View, received the Pride in the Job Quality Award, known as the “Oscars of the housebuilding industry”, from the National House Building Council (NHBC).
This year, a record total of 19 site managers from Barratt Developments Scotland, which includes Barratt Homes and David Wilson Homes, won a top national award for the quality of the homes they are building.
Colin Beattie, MSP for Midlothian North and Musselburgh, visited the Pentland View development to meet award-winner Shaun and apprentices Mitchell McGonigal and Findlay McGillivary along with development director Nicholas Wright and senior sales advisor Karen Connelly.
Mr Wright, development director for East Scotland, said: “We were thrilled to welcome Colin Beattie MSP to Pentland View and to demonstrate the quality which we are building across all tenures in his constituency.
“The Pride in the Job awards acknowledge the work we’re doing to showcase our commitment to building the highest standard of homes in Midlothian and across Scotland, with our elite site manager Shaun Quinn being among those demonstrating our award-winning customer care.”
Mr Beattie said: “I was delighted to visit Pentland View housing development and meet some of the individuals behind this impressive project. My congratulations to site manager Shaun Quinn on receiving this award which acknowledges his dedication and expertise.
“I was pleased to meet with Mitchell McGonigal and Findlay McGillivary who are both undertaking apprenticeships with Barratt Homes. Their enthusiasm and commitment left a positive impression on me. It was also my pleasure to meet award winning sales advisor Karen Conelly, and discuss matters about the housing development with her.
“I was greatly impressed by the quality of the new homes and the talented individuals driving this development forward. It is clear that this project is not only enhancing our local housing options but also fostering a sense of pride and excellence in the construction industry.”
Situated in the Midlothian town of Bilston and just seven miles from Edinburgh city centre, Pentland View is a community of three-, four- and five-bedroom homes.
