Pride in the job for Kevin

An experienced site manager based in Barton upon Humber has scooped a top industry award for his commitment to quality.

Kevin Dove has worked in the building industry for around 30 years, 20 of those as a site manager. Currently overseeing work at Redrow’s Fox’s Fold development, he’s won his first National House-Building Council Pride in the Job ‘Quality’ award.

Kevin, 53, from Lincoln, supervises the work of up to 35 tradesmen on site at  Fox’s Fold.

“I’m chuffed to have finally won the award as it shows the hard work invested by everyone working on site had paid off,” he said.

“It was a conscious effort by the whole team to raise our game and improve standards both for the inspectors and for customers.”

He was selected from more than 13,000 site managers across the UK to win a ‘Quality’ award. Just 430 of the accolades have been awarded – 16 of them to Redrow site managers from across the UK. 

Only site managers who demonstrate exceptional standards in every aspect of their work on site and the homes they build are considered for a Pride in the Job ‘Quality’ award.

Judging includes spot checks of the day-to-day running of the site. Each site manager is assessed across 38 areas of site management including their technical knowledge, consistency in the build process and leadership and organisational skills.

Kevin will now have to wait until September to discover if he’s earned the coveted ‘Seal of Excellence’, which would put him in the top 130 site managers UK-wide.

To appreciate the quality workmanship invested in the properties by Kevin and his team, visit Fox’s Fold, where the show homes are open Thursday to Monday from 10am to 5pm.
