Paul Peacock, a local Site Manager, received the Seal of Excellence in the Pride in the Job Awards, in on-site management for his work at the Redrow South Midlands development, Cottenham Grove in Cottenham, Cambridgeshire.
Running for 40 years, the NHBC’s Pride in the Job scheme is dedicated to recognising the industry’s very best performers and is a prestigious accolade that site managers aspire to achieve.
To receive an award, site managers must score highly in all areas of build and site management including quality of workmanship, technical expertise, health and safety and leadership. Judges look for meticulous attention to detail and the special qualities and attributes that set quality, award-winning site managers apart from the rest.
Paul, who has been a Site Manager for 31 years and has worked for Redrow for six years, has been based at Cottenham Grove since its launch in 2021. This is his first NHBC award with Redrow.
Don Burley, Construction Director for Redrow South Midlands, said: “We are thrilled that Paul has received his first Seal of Excellence Award with Redrow. This is testament to his dedication to the sector, and his passion for building high-quality homes and helping to create thriving communities.
“A Seal of Excellence Award is something that many site managers strive for, so it is truly an outstanding achievement and well-deserved – Paul, congratulations!”
Commenting on his award win, Paul said: “Winning the award is an incredible accomplishment. Every time we hand over a completed new house and surpass clients' expectations, I know we've created a fantastic new home for a family. Building a solid team that share my values has been critical to the development's success, and I'd like to thank them for all of their hard work – I wouldn't be able to do my job without their ongoing support."
