Allison Homes site manager wins award for quality housebuilding

We are proudly celebrating the win of Site Manager Michael Ramsay at this year’s NHBC (National House Building Council) Pride in the Job Quality Awards.

Michael Ramsay has been selected from a field of more than 8,000 UK site managers and is now one of 443 to be awarded the accolade for their work.

The Pride in the Job Awards is the most highly regarded competition in the industry, and celebrates site managers who have achieved the very highest standards in housebuilding. It shines a light on the important role site managers play in ensuring homes are delivered on time, on safe sites and to exacting construction standards.

The judging process began in July 2021, and each site manager was assessed on their consistency, attention to detail, leadership, technical expertise, interpretation of drawings and specification, and health and safety skills.

Michael works as a Site Manager at our popular Cromwell Fields development in Bury, Cambridgeshire. Situated off Upwood Road, the development consists of a range of one, three and four bedroom homes.

Michael said: “I’m honoured to have received this level of recognition from such an important industry body. I’m very proud of all that myself and the team have achieved at Cromwell Fields, and I’d like to thank all of them for their support and hard work.

“Winning a Pride in the Job Award is truly a highlight of my career. I’m looking forward to continuing to improve in my role, and to provide Cambridgeshire people with much needed, high quality housing.”

Rob Crossland, Construction Director for Allison Homes’ Central region, said: “We are exceptionally proud that Michael has won a Quality Award. He is an invaluable member of the Allison Homes team, and this award rightfully acknowledges his passion, dedication and leadership.

“This is the first time a member of our team has won a Pride in the Job Award, and we couldn’t be happier. This award is the most valued industry accolade a site manager can achieve, and it’s very well deserved.”

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.”

Pride in the Job Quality Awards winners will now go on to compete for Seal of Excellence and Regional Awards, which will be announced in autumn. The national Supreme Awards will then be revealed in January 2023.
