A Bovis Homes site manager in Bedfordshire is celebrating a prestigious award for hitting the highest standards in housebuilding.
Bovis Homes site manager Dale Burrell said it was "absolutely brilliant" to win an NHBC Pride of the Job award
Royal Marine reservist Dale Burrell has been recognised for excellence in his on-site management skills at Wootton Park in Wootton, near Bedford.
He picked up the gong in the Southern region of the National House Building Council's (NHBC) Pride in the Job Awards 2018.
The achievement illustrates Bovis Homes' drive for build quality in its Northern Home Counties region.
Dale said the award was “absolutely brilliant” for the team. “We're striving the best we can to make everything work on site,” he said. “It's all about the team, not just on the site but in the office too. It's put a smile on my face, it's absolutely brilliant.
“The team's reaction has been really great. We tried to get this to be an award-winning site. Every home we build, we strive to build it to the best of our ability, as if we were moving in ourselves.”
Michael Stirrop, managing director of Bovis Homes' Northern Home Counties region, said the company had received “fantastic feedback” from Wootton Park customers as a result of the team's efforts.
He said: “This is a tremendous achievement for Dale and the whole Wootton team. This award shows exactly what Bovis Homes is about, pride in our work, and Wootton Park is a great example of it.
“The hardworking team there have a drive to deliver for customers every day, and as a result we are getting fantastic feedback from house buyers there.”
Dale will now be entered for the Seal of Excellence and Regional Winner titles, the winners of which will be announced on 26 October.
Six Bovis Homes site managers won Pride in the Job awards across England this year. It is the highest number since 2012.
