DAVID Wilson Yorkshire East Site Manager Andy Bentley – the man in charge at the housebuilder’s popular Serenity development in Doncaster – has won a top award for his excellent workmanship.

Andy (pictured) has scooped a coveted Quality Award in the Pride in the Job campaign, organised by the National House-Building Council (NHBC).

The awards programme seeks to find the best-run building sites in Britain.

He is one of seven winners working for the company to win Quality Awards, an achievement which puts them in the top three per cent of their profession in the UK.

Andy was judged on every aspect of his job including technical skill, quality workmanship, customer service and site safety and will now go on to the next round of the competition.

The Pride in the Job Quality Awards are the most coveted in the housebuilding industry.

They are presented after the construction standard setting body NHBC (National House-Building Council) carries out a series of spot check site inspections to select the best-organised and best-quality housing developments.

Andy said; “The NHBC assessors check all the key stages of building a home, from laying the foundations through to completion, so your work has to be first class throughout.

“You need the right people all working together to build a top quality new home and it takes a real team effort.

“I’m delighted to receive this award, it’s all down to the great people producing excellent work here.”

Paul Hogan, Sales Director for David Wilson Yorkshire East said: “The official and national recognition of the job which Andy is doing shows that we are building some of the best quality homes in the area here at Serenity.

“The site manager plays a pivotal role in delivering high-quality new homes and that is why we are so delighted that Andy has won one of these aspirational awards.”

Isabel Hudson, Executive Chairman of NHBC, said: “For over 30 years, Pride in the Job has been one of the cornerstones of NHBC’s work to improve housing standards for the benefit of home-owners.

“It is the only UK-wide competition that is dedicated to, and directly recognises, site managers who demonstrate commitment to achieving high standards in house-building.

“It has been extremely successful over the years in promoting and encouraging best practice on site.

“Highly regarded within the industry, winners earn the true respect of their peers.

“Anyone gaining a first-round award is already in the top three percent of their profession, and they can be very proud of their achievement.”

Serenity is situated off the prestigious Bawtry Road.

As well as being ideally located within great proximity to a host of great retail and leisure delights, this development offers perfect access to the region’s best loved cities and regional motorway networks. International travel is also on hand thanks to Robin Hood International Airport, which is a short drive away.
