Lucky seven for Bellway site manager

George Carty

Bellway site manager George Carty is celebrating winning a Pride in the Job Quality Award for the seventh year in a row.

George, from Cumbernauld Village, has been selected for the prestigious accolade for his work at the luxury Manor Park development in Carrickstone.

He will be presented with his award at the Scotland Region lunch on October 5 in The Hilton, Glasgow.

George said: “It is very satisfying to win this award for the seventh time but although my name is on it, it is really an award for the whole team – the subbies, all the guys on site, everyone who is working to make exceptional homes for our homebuyers.”

Pride in the Job is the house-building industry’s most prestigious awards programme. It is dedicated to recognising site managers who achieve the highest standards in house-building.

This year’s 450 Quality Award winners from across the UK represent the top 3% of the 16,000 site managers entered into the competition for their management of a site registered for warranty with NHBC.

They will go on to be entered for the Seal of Excellence and Regional Awards with the Supreme Award Winners unveiled at gala ceremony in January 2019.

Fraser Conn, sales director, Bellway Homes Ltd (Scotland), added: “It is amazing that George has managed to win this award for a seventh time – what an incredible achievement!

“The standards set by the inspectors for the NHBC are extremely high and we could not be more proud of George and the team at Manor Park. It would be easy for them to rest on their laurels but they just keep raising the bar. George has narrowly missed out on the Supreme Award on two occasions now, it would fantastic if he manages to bring it home in January.”

Commenting on the Awards, NHBC chief executive Steve Wood said: “NHBC launched Pride in the Job in 1980, with the clear aim of promoting and driving the highest standards in new home building. 38 years on, this drive for excellence remains very much at the heart of the competition.

“Pride in the Job recognises the hugely important role site managers play in delivering high quality new homes for residents and homeowners across the UK. Their role is undoubtedly one of the toughest in house building, they really do make the difference to quality on site.”

Over the past 12 months judges have assessed the skills demonstrated by the site managers in their day-to-day work, covering six key areas: consistency, attention to detail, leadership, interpretation of drawing and specifications, technical expertise and health and safety.
