Two Stewart Milne Homes’ site managers for Deeside and Donside have been recognised by the NHBC for achieving the highest standards in house building.

Greg Thompson, site manager at The Gardens at Crathes, scored a double triumph as he was awarded a Pride in the Job Quality Award at the Pride in the Job Awards 2015 and, shortly after, was Highly Commended at the NHBC Health and Safety Awards 2015.

Colleague Derek Gibson, from the award-winning builder’s Silver Birches development in Alford, was also given the prestigious Pride in the Job Quality Award by the industry body for the second year running.

The NHBC Health and Safety Awards are designed to recognise the very best in health and safety and enhance industry safety standards by showcasing and sharing best practice.

Greg’s Highly Commended award shows that he has demonstrated an outstanding level of health and safety management – from planning the build through to executing the site.

To qualify for the Pride in the Job quality awards, Greg and Derek were shortlisted from over 15,000 site managers across the UK and excelled throughout 12 months of rigorous judging.

Both will now go on to compete for the Seal of Excellence and Regional Awards.

Greg added, “It’s an honour to be recognised by the NHBC twice in such a short period of time.

“To be given a Pride in the Job award and then be Highly Commended for health and safety is really rewarding for all the team involved. It’s great to have their hard work recognised.”

Derek, who also won a Pride in the Job Award last year, is delighted for a second time: “The NHBC is looking for meticulous attention to detail at all stages of the build.

“It’s a real achievement to be recognised nationally for the quality of workmanship that we put into these sites.”

John Low, managing director at Stewart Milne Homes, commented:

“To have not just one, but two of our site managers recognised for their commitment to quality, solid workmanship, and health and safety is a true asset to Stewart Milne Homes.”
