NHBC Pride in the Job award winners

We^ have won an incredible 84 Pride in the Job Awards for 2019 – more than any other national housebuilder for the 15th 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. 

 Our success

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.
