Taylor Wimpey site manager win top award for Maidenhill
David McClure has once again been named as one of the top site managers in Scotland, picking up a Seal of Excellence in NHBC’s Pride in the Job Awards 2022 for his work at Taylor Wimpey’s Westfield Gate development in Maidenhill.
This year’s Seal of Excellence award follows many NHBC accolades over the years since David’s first Pride in the Job Award in 2011 and a ‘Seal of Excellence’ top ten ranking in that year too.
Organised by NHBC, the new home warranty and insurance provider, Pride in the Job celebrates site managers who have achieved the very highest standards in house building. It is the most highly regarded competition in the house-building industry and a prestigious benchmark for exceptional site managers.
Now in its 42 nd year, judging for the Awards is rigorous, with each site manager assessed across six key areas: consistency, attention to detail, leadership, interpretation of drawings and specifications, technical expertise and health and safety.
Pride in the Job is at the heart of NHBC’s core purpose to raise standards in house building. By recognising the very best site managers across the UK, the competition celebrates the vital role that site managers play in ensuring new homes are delivered on time, on safe sites and to exacting construction quality standards.
David McClure, senior site manager for Taylor Wimpey West Scotland, added: “Picking up a Seal of Excellence Award in this year’s NHBC Pride in the Job Awards is a fantastic honour, not just for me, but for the whole team. I’ve enjoyed great success in the NHBC Pride in the Job Awards over the years, and I’m still excited to work with a great team of people at our development in Maidenhill to deliver the high-quality homes that our customers deserve.”
Brian Henderson, production director for Taylor Wimpey West Scotland, added: “We’re very proud of David’s NHBC achievements over the years, and we’re thrilled that he’s consistently delivering an exceptional range of new homes for our customers at Maidenhill. His hard work, commitment to quality and consistency is a real attribute to our business, and I am very pleased to see him recognised as one of the top site managers in Scotland.”
Congratulating NHBC Pride in the Job Award winners, NHBC chief executive, Steve Wood said: “For more than 40 years Pride in the Job has been an important part of our work to help drive construction quality.
“Winning site managers tell us that it inspires them to give a little extra and to strive harder for ever-higher standards of house building.
“At NHBC we believe that the calibre of the site manager and the way they inspire their site team has the greatest influence on the quality of the finished home. By promoting friendly rivalry, showcasing best practice and rewarding excellence, Pride in the Job supports the delivery of homes of the highest quality.
“Congratulations to all the 2022 Pride in the Job Seal of Excellence and Regional Award winners. They are an inspiration to us all and should be very proud of the quality of new homes they are creating.”
The competition’s regional event in Scotland took place on 30 September 2022 in Glasgow, and the Supreme Awards gala final will be held in London in January 2023.
