A Mirfield site manager has landed a NHBC Quality Award for creating outstanding homes at the St Paul’s Lock development.

Nigel Smith of Darren Smith Builders Ltd is one of only 46 site managers in the North East to have won a Quality Award in the first round of NHBC Pride in the Job Awards 2018.

Nigel will now go on to compete for Seal of Excellence and regional awards that will be announced at an event in Leeds in September.

Over the past year judges have assessed the skills demonstrated by the site managers in their day-to-day work, covering six key areas: consistency, attention to detail, leadership, interpretation of drawings and specifications, technical expertise and health and safety.

NHBC regional director Geoff Egginton said: “Pride in the Job recognises the important role site managers play in delivering high quality new homes and receiving a Quality Award is a great achievement for any site manager.

“Nigel’s role is undoubtedly one of the toughest in house building and his drive for excellence is very much at the heart of the competition.

“We wish Nigel the very best of luck in the next stage of the competition.”
