“I’m ecstatic to have won again. Not only is it my 10th award-win, but the third in a row,” Matt, 44, from Burton on Trent said.
“I’ve kept my focus and determination and raised my game to improve standards because the competition for the awards is so tough. It doesn’t get any easier, that’s why I’m so pleased.”
Matt, who oversees up to 70 people working on the new homes at Oakwood Grange added: “It’s a team effort and I couldn’t have won without the help and hard work of everyone on site. They’re all pleased to have won too.”
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.
Matt will now have to wait until October to discover if he’s earned the coveted ‘Seal of Excellence’, which would put him in the top 130 site managers UK wide.
“I’m hopeful I can win the Seal,” Matt added.
Oakwood Grange features a choice of four-bedroom homes, currently priced from £204,995.
