Andy Wilson scores a hat trick for housebuilder Redrow.
Huddersfield site manager Andrew Wilson has scored a hat trick for housebuilder Redrow.
The 41 year old, who works at the company’s Springfields development, in Highburton, leading a team of 40, has won a coveted Quality Award at the NHBC’s annual Pride in the Job Awards.
Pride in the Job celebrates the exceptional contribution site managers make in creating homes of outstanding quality.
With more than 16,000 managers competing for the awards, this year’s winners have been hand-picked for their excellent standards on site. Following 12 months of rigorous judging, these first round winners excelled and will now go on to compete for the Seal of Excellence and Regional Winner titles.
Andrew, who lives with his partner and two sons in Halifax, West Yorkshire, a Redrow Yorkshire site manager, has earned the sought-after accolade for the third time, despite only working for the company for three years. Andrew, who currently leads the team at Springfields, will soon move to Redrow’s prestigious new Thorpe Park development, which will transform the east of Leeds into a vibrant place to live, with retail, leisure opportunities, and new homes.
Said Andrew: “A Pride in the Job Award is like winning an Oscar in the building industry. I am absolutely delighted to have won.
“I have an excellent team who provide great support and understand the importance of thorough planning, good organisation and great communication.
“Winning it three times in a row is amazing and I am very proud because you are judged across the year and it shows our homes are built to a very high standard and we take great pride in our work”
Andrew was one of three winning site managers in the Yorkshire region for Redrow.
John Tutte, Executive Chairman at Redrow, commented: “We’re pleased to report that a record number of our site managers received a Pride in the Job award from the NHBC. It’s testament to the fantastic work and commitment from our team that we are able to pick up so many awards this year.
“I am proud of all of our award-winning site managers. I wish all of today’s winners the very best of luck for the next round in the autumn.
“The increasing number of high-achievers at Redrow is testament to the company’s commitment to learning and development.”
Redrow, which this year secured the top Five Star rating by the Home Builders Federation (HBF), based on a survey of its customers in which more than 90% said they would recommend Redrow to a friend, is also the only major housebuilder to have its own dedicated housebuilding degree. The degree is available to all company’s employees, including site managers, ensuring that employees not only excel in their role but work towards achieving professional recognition.
Following the announcement of the first-round winners, all successful site managers are invited to attend the Regional Award ceremonies held in the Autumn to celebrate their exceptional achievement and go on to compete for a Seal of Excellence and a Regional Award in their respective categories.
