Avonside Group Contribute Big to NHBC Pride in the Job 2021 Sites

Published on 26th August 2021
NHBC Pride in the Job 2021

Any Site Manager knows that to be awarded an NHBC Pride in the Job award is the greatest honour they can receive within the industry. That’s why we are delighted to have worked alongside such a high calibre of award-winning Site Managers, supporting them by providing high-quality roofing services.

Pleasingly, our branches in the West Midlands Region worked on an impressive TEN Quality award-winning sites, with SM Roofing Contracts Ltd (part of Avonside Group) being involved with eight award-winning sites and Avonside Roofing Cannock carrying out roof tiling and leadwork on two Quality award sites. Meanwhile, our Scotland branches contributed to no fewer than NINE NHBC Pride in the Job 2021 Quality award-winning sites.

This continues our reputation for working with the best Site Managers, with our Biggleswade branch having helped support Kier Living Eastern’s Site Manager Max Perrin as he secured a Seal of Excellence award for the East region last year and our Midlands branches also contributing to 6 Seal of Excellence sites in 2019.

Over the last four decades, the NHBC (National House Building Council)’s Pride in the Job awards have been at the heart of the NHBC’s drive to build confidence in the quality of new homes. Their purpose? To recognise the UK’s most outstanding Site Managers!

As we progress into a new era of building at volume, in which we face the challenges of skills and materials shortages and increasing consumer demands, exceptional Site Managers are needed now more than ever.

How the NHBC Pride in the Job 2021 Awards Work

Every Site Manager with a site registered for an NHBC Buildmark warranty product is automatically entered. There are four categories to truly represent the UK house-building industry, with new build, conversions and affordable housing sites all being eligible:

  1. Small sites of 1-50 new homes
  2. Medium sites of 51-1000 new homes
  3. Large sites with 1000+ new homes
  4. Sites with Multi-story properties (5 -storeys or more)

SM Roofing worked alongside NHBC Supreme Awards 2020 winner Kirk RaineThe first round of the NHBC Pride in the Job 2021 awards saw around 400-450 Quality award-winning Site Managers announced in June 2021. Congratulations to all the Site Managers who won an NHBC Pride in the Job 2021 Quality award! The Seal of Excellence Awards for each region will follow, presented at the Regional Award events in Autumn 2021. At the same event, one Regional Award winner per category is chosen from the Seal of Excellence award winners.

All this cumulates in the Supreme Award winning Site Managers being crowned at the Pride in the Job gala in January 2022, selected from the pool of Regional Award winners. The result is there are four overall national winners in each of the four categories listed above. A runner-up in each category is aloud announced.

We were thrilled to work alongside David Wilson Homes Mercia Site Manager Kirk Raine [pictured] who secured a Supreme Award in 2020 in the Large Builder category.
