A quality, award-winning homebuilder
We’re proud to be recognised as an award winning national homebuilder, with award winning employees.
NHBC Pride in the Job award winners
Yet again we are proud to announce that we have won an incredible 74 Pride in the Job Awards for 2017-2018, more than any other national housebuilder for the 13th year in a row.
NHBC Pride in the Job is the home-building industry’s most prestigious awards programme, dedicated to recognising Site Managers who achieve the highest standards in quality home-building. A Pride in the Job award is the highest industry accolade a site manager can receive.
Each year as part of the awards, the NHBC join with leading experts in the home-building industry to rigorously judge over 16,000 site managers across the nation. Winning a Pride in the Job award requires consistently high scoring across a variety of categories, including:
- Quality of workmanship at every stage of the build process, including foundations, surface finishes and external works
- Leadership skills, reflected by a high level of morale and motivation on site
- Technical expertise and their ability to resolve issues on site
- A certain 'X' factor that sets them apart from their peers
From this marking process 450 Site Managers receive quality awards, and are then eligible to receive one or more of the next stage of the awards. All 74 of our winners will now proceed to the next stage of the awards.
23 x Seals of Excellence
The Seal of Excellence awards follow the initial quality awards where by 130 site managers are announced winners, with the winners split by region. 23 of our site managers received Seals of Excellence.
5 x Regional Best Site Managers
From each region of the Seal of Excellence award, one winner is selected from each of the five builder categories, which are single home, small, medium, large and multi-storey.
1 x Supreme Winner in the Large Builder category
We are delighted that Henry Patecki, Site Manager at one of our developments in Leicester was awarded the ultimate accolade of Supreme Winner in the Large Builder category. One Supreme Winner is chosen from the regional winners of each of the five builder categories, and this prestigious award recognises the highest level of quality. The title of Supreme Winner is awarded to just five site managers selected from more than 16,000 sites across the UK.
The Supreme Awards celebrate the exceptional contribution site managers make in creating homes of outstanding quality and is regarded as the highest industry accolade a site manager can receive.
NHBC is the UK’s leading standard-setting body for new homes, and this achievement reflects our ongoing commitment to raising the standards.
Five-star quality homebuilding
The Home Builders Federation conducts an independent customer satisfaction survey each year. Homebuilders are then awarded a star rating, from one to five, based on the answer to the question: ‘Would you recommend your builder to a friend?’.
We are proud to have been awarded the maximum five stars from the House Builders Federation, and we are the only major national home builder to achieve this every year since 2010. 90% of our homeowners would recommend us to their friends*, and this knowledge allows us to continue our work providing some of the best new homes in the UK.
* The 90% percentage is based on the number of valid responses received. The HBF Star Rating Scheme is open to HBF members who typically build more than 300 homes per year. It is a voluntary scheme so only those builders who opt to participate will be star rated.
