Mick’s pride at 10th award

A commitment to quality has earned a site manager based in Lexden, near Colchester a 10th top industry award.

Mick Eyre, who oversees construction of new homes at King’s Park, is one of 18 Redrow employees to receive Pride in the Job ‘Quality’ Awards from the NHBC (National House Building Council). Around 15,000 site managers undergo the judging process with just 450 winners selected.

While it’s a record number of wins for Redrow, it’s a 10th win for Mick.

Mick said:

“I’ve worked in construction for 38 years and so my experience helps, but I enjoy my job and I’m a team player.

“I support the staff and the contractors and they support me. I couldn’t have won the award without them and they’re all proud at what we have achieved.”

Judging for the Pride in the Job Awards begins a year before the announcement of the first round of winners. It includes spot checks of the day-to-day running of their site, plus assessment across 38 areas of site management, including their technical knowledge, consistency in the build process, leadership and organisational skills.

Only site managers who demonstrate exceptional standards in every aspect of their work on site and in the homes they build are considered for a Pride in the Job Award.

Mick added:

“I like to maintain high standards and to see happy customers. The award gives the site added prestige and customers should take comfort that it gives their home a quality assurance.

“It is very satisfying winning the award and I am very pleased the hard work that the site team and I have put in has been recognised.”

Mick and the other ‘Quality’ Award winners will now have to wait until the autumn to discover if they’ve made it into the top 130 site managers to secure the coveted ‘Seal of Excellence’.
