Site managers at Vistry Group are celebrating after locations around the country were rewarded with prestigious national awards for housebuilding quality.
Vistry's Kieron Wheeler won a Pride in the Job Quality Award
Site managers at Vistry – which includes Bovis Homes, Linden Homes and Vistry Partnerships – won National House Building Council Pride in the Job Quality Awards, after being selected from more than 11,000 inspected sites across the UK.
The winners include Vistry colleagues in London, Milton Keynes, Kettering, Crawley, Swindon, Whiteley, Seaton, Ringwood, Norfolk, Redditch, Crewe, Staffordshire and York.
Kieron Wheeler, 24, site manager at Millwood Meadows in Redditch, said: "I'm over the moon, I can't believe it! Thank you so much to my fantastic team, family, senior management and our subcontractors for all their hard work, efforts and support. I never thought this would be possible aged 24 but here I am a Pride in the Job Quality Award winner!"
Pride in the Job, which is celebrating its 40th anniversary, marks the exceptional contribution site managers make in creating homes of outstanding quality. After 12 months of rigorous judging, these first round winners excelled and will now go on to compete for the Seal of Excellence Awards and Regional Winner titles.
Greg Fitzgerald, chief executive of Vistry, said: "This is a fantastic achievement for these site managers and we are delighted and proud that they have achieved this prestigious accolade.
“This success is a testament to all their hard work in what have latterly been extremely challenging times for the industry and country. We look forward to celebrating their accomplishment, and that of their teams, as these Vistry stars now go forward to the next stage of recognition for their build quality achievements."
