Two site managers from Redrow Homes East Midlands have been recognised at the Pride in the Job Quality Awards 2017.
Neil Hunt, from Redrow’s Poppyfields Meadow development in Allestree, and Ady Down, who works at Oaklands Park in Ashbourne, are two of a record 27 Redrow site managers commended at this year’s Pride in the Job Quality Awards.
The accolade, established by the National House Building Council, celebrates the exceptional contribution site managers make in creating homes of outstanding quality.
The winners of the prestigious industry award are selected from a pool of 16,000 site managers across the UK. The 12-month selection and judging process identifies site managers who encapsulate skills such as leadership, technical expertise and attention to detail.
Not only has Redrow outdone its 2016 tally of 24, the company’s 2017 awards count is more than double the average in the competition, which stands at 12. The number of successful site managers at Redrow has increased every year since 2013.
Other Redrow winners come from some of the housebuilder’s key UK sites, including Ebbsfleet Green in Kent, Lyon Square in London and The Pavilion in Lancashire. The West Country in particular has excelled this year, winning five out of the 27 awards won by Redrow.
Commenting on the accolades, John Tutte, Redrow’s chief executive officer, said:
“We’re very proud of all of our winning site managers, and that a record number have been recognised for the second year running. The fact we count 27 of the industry’s best site managers amongst our colleagues is a reflection of the high standards we uphold across Redrow.
“It’s a rigorous judging process and only the best in the business achieve the ‘Quality’ awards. The fact we continue to improve year-on-year demonstrates our commitment to continually improving the high build quality of our homes.”
This year’s achievement is a testament to Redrow’s unwavering commitment to the quality training and retention of its people: 5,000 training days are delivered by the Learning and Development team each year.
Redrow has also been recognised as the Construction Industry Training Board’s Apprentice Employer of the Year and one of the National Apprenticeship Service’s Top 100 Apprenticeship Employers.
