Seal of excellence for two Yorkshire site managers

16th November 2023
Redrow News - Seal - Yorkshire

Two Redrow site managers from Yorkshire are celebrating after winning a Seal of Excellence Award from the National Home Building Council.

James Barraclough, 36, from Wakefield and Michael Burnell, 34, from Leeds were given the coveted accolade as part of this year’s Pride in the Job Awards.

Established by the National House Building Council (NHBC), the Pride in the Job Awards celebrate the exceptional contribution site managers make in creating homes of outstanding quality.

Earlier this year, James and Michael won an NHBC Pride in the Job Quality Award, the first phase of the annual competition, there are only 141 site managers nationwide to receive a ‘Seal of Excellence’ award.

James who was awarded for his work leading the construction team at our Poppy Fields development in Rotherham, has worked in a managerial role for the past 10 years.

He joined Redrow six years ago as an assistant site manager, working on a number of developments in Yorkshire including in Horsforth and Wakefield.

“It was such a great feeling to hear that I had won in the first round and now to win a Seal of Excellence Award – it has made me very proud,” said James, a married father of two.

Michael, who has won three NHBC Pride in the Job Quality Awards, received his Seal of Excellence for leading the team at Redrow’s The Avenue at Thorpe Park development in Leeds.

“I was so proud winning the Pride in the Job Award which is massively important and hugely recognised in the industry and now I’ve won a Seal of Excellence Award too – I am very pleased,” said Michael, who had worked for Redrow for the past nine years.

“Winning this award gives you a real sense of self-pride and achievement. It takes a lot of hard work and dedication from all of the team and that hard work has paid off.”

Pride in the Job, first launched over 40 years ago, is the most highly regarded competition in the house-building industry. Judging for the awards is rigorous, with the current competition beginning in July last year.

Around 8,000 eligible site managers are assessed across six key areas: consistency, attention to detail, leadership, interpretation of drawings and specifications, technical expertise and health and safety.

Redrow Yorkshire’s construction director Wayne Morris added: “This award highlights the hard work and dedication James and Michael have shown in their roles as site managers at Redrow Yorkshire.

“It is a well-earned reward for the commitment they have shown year after year, and we wish them both huge congratulations.”
