A HEREFORDSHIRE site manager has won a top national award for the quality of the homes he is building

Paul Ellis won a Pride in the Job Quality Award from the National House Building Council (NHBC) for demonstrating exceptional standards in building new communities.

The Barratt and David Wilson Homes South Wales site manager is responsible for The Orchards development in Ross-on-Wye.

Barratt site managers picked up 89 Pride in the Job Quality awards at the prestigious awards ceremony, nicknamed the ‘Oscars of the housebuilding industry’, which is more than any other housebuilder.


The awards showcase the best site managers in the country, with each judged on key criteria including health and safety, technical knowledge, customer service and attention to detail.

Every site manager registered with the NHBC is automatically entered into the awards, with just 450 winners being selected from over 8,000 entrants.

The awards also help to build quality standards across both developments and teams, with winning site managers invariably having an assistant site manager working with them. They learn the high standards that are needed to win, increasing quality throughout the industry. David Kelland, Operations Director at Barratt Developments South Wales, said: “These awards recognise only the best new homes and best-managed developments across the country, and we are very proud of our UK record".
