For a second year in a row our site managers at Taw Wharf Barnstaple have won a Quality Award in the first round of NHBC’s Pride in the Job Awards 2022. 

From a field of more than 8,000, Richard Young and Peter Hamley are two of the 443 site managers to be awarded the accolade for their work at our Taw Wharf development in Barnstaple.

Organised by NHBC, the UK’s leading new homes warranty and insurance provider, Pride in the Job celebrates site managers who have achieved the very highest standards in house building across the UK. It is the most highly regarded competition in the house-building industry and the most prestigious benchmark for exceptional site managers.

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.

The 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 2023.

Commenting on the Awards, 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 Quality Award winners. They are an inspiration to us all and should be very proud of the quality of new homes they are creating.”

Commenting on the Pearce success, Homes Director Nick Hopkins said: “Congratulations to Richard and Peter and their team for your hard work at Taw Wharf Barnstaple.  We are PROUD to have you building very high quality homes creating stunning places where people want to live.”
