Durkan Site Manager wins Pride in Job Quality Award

Home buyers can be assured of the quality of new houses built by Durkan at The Academy, Woolwich, following the announcement of site manager – Tony Gallagher – as a winner in the first round of annual Pride in Job Awards organised by NHBC (National Housing-Building Council).

Now in its 36th year – Pride in the Job celebrates the exceptional contribution site managers make in creating homes of outstanding quality. As well as undergoing spot checks on the day-to day running of the sites, each site manager is assessed across 37 areas of site management, including their technical knowledge, consistency in the build process and the quality controls they have in place.

With more than 16,000 site managers competing for the awards, this year’s Quality Award winners have been hand-picked for their excellent standards on site.

Commenting on the Awards, Mike Quinton, Chief Executive of NHBC, said:

“Congratulations to all the 2016 Quality Award winners - the strength of this year’s entries coupled with the judges’ long and hard deliberations over selecting 445 winners from 16,000 site managers should give great pride to them all and their teams.

“Pride in the Job rewards those site managers who produce the best new homes which are built and finished to the highest possible standard. Most importantly, homeowners who buy a Pride in the Job award-winning home benefit from a high quality product.

“On behalf of everyone at NHBC, I would like to congratulate them on this wonderful achievement.”

Commenting on Tony Gallagher’s achievement, Durkan’s Executive Chairman, Danny Durkan said:

“We were delighted to hear of Tony’s recent Quality Award from the NHBC. This win is testament to the hard work and dedication shown by Tony and his team at The Academy in Woolwich.”

As part of the year-long judging process, the Quality Award winners will now be shortlisted for Seals of Excellence and Regional titles which will be revealed in the autumn. The regional winners will then go forward to compete for the national Supreme Winner title in their category at the Pride in the Job Gala, taking place in London in January.
