A building site manager has won an award for building high-quality homes.

Harry Dainton from Heysham has been announced as a first-round winner in the annual NHBC Pride in the Job Awards, and is now shortlisted for a regional title.

Pride in the Job recognises the personal achievement of UK house-building site managers in creating homes of outstanding quality.

Harry of Miller Homes Limited - North West Region won the award for working on Millers Green, Mossgate, Heysham, Morecambe, joining 450 Quality Award winners from across the UK.

Shortlisted from around 13,000 entrants, they can justifiably claim to be in the top few percent of their profession.

Ian Davies, regional director for NHBC, the UK’s leading standards setter and warranty provider for new UK homes, said: “Winning a Pride in the Job Quality Award is a major achievement for any site manager.

“Harry is at the top of the game, ensuring that the homes created are of the highest standards.

“Harry can be truly proud of this accolade.”

“For over three decades, Pride in the Job has been a foundation of NHBC’s work to improve housing standards, encouraging best practice on site.”

The winners were shortlisted from all site managers working on NHBC-registered sites, having excelled in a comprehensive year-long judging process, assessed against the stringent criteria defined by NHBC’s technical Standards for building new homes.

Regional winners will be announced at ceremonies in the autumn, with the victors progressing to the Gala Final in London in January.
