Pride in the job party for Kevin

The construction team at Redrow’s Fox’s Fold venture in Barton upon Humber downed tools in honour of site manager Kevin Dove.

Kevin has been awarded his first National House-Building Council Pride in the Job ‘Quality’ Award in recognition of his exceptional standards. And to celebrate the accolade a party was held at the site in Barton.

NHBC regional director Geoff Egginton was among the guests, who also included Redrow staff, subcontractors and suppliers.

John Grime, managing director of Redrow Homes (Yorkshire) commented: “More than 13,000 site managers were assessed by the NHBC and Kevin was one of only 430 site managers across the country – and one of 16 Redrow site managers - to receive a Quality award.

“He’s a well deserved recipient as his work is of a consistently high standard. The site party was a chance to recognise the dedication and hard work of Kevin and his team.”

It’s the first time in his 20-year career as a site manager that he’s received the accolade.

Kevin, 52, from Lincoln, said: “Wining the award was a team effort and reflects the hard work invested by everyone working on site. I’m chuffed to have won.”

Kevin will now have to wait until September 28 to discover if he’s earned the coveted ‘Seal of Excellence’, which would put him in the top 130 site managers UK-wide.

His team is responsible for building a range of three and four-bedroom homes at Fox’s Fold, currently priced from £124,999. To experience the quality and finish of the homes they build, visit the show homes, open Thursday to Monday from 10am to 5.30pm.
