Beckenham Building Site Manager Wins Pride In The Job Accolade
27 Jul 2015

A top industry performance award has been won by the site manager at housebuilder Linden Homes’ Century Gate development in Beckenham.

The professionalism of Ian Wade (52), from Brasted, Kent, has been recognised with a coveted Pride in the Job Quality Award from the National House Building Council (NHBC).

Ian is among six Linden Homes site managers around the country to be recognised for the high standard of their work. Overall, 450 Quality winners were picked from 15,000 entrants.

“I’m very proud to win the Pride in the Job Quality Award, but this is something for the whole team, really,” said Ian. “We have pulled together at Century Gate to build a really high standard collection of homes, with plenty of character, which our customers seem to love.”

Ian and his Linden Homes colleagues will find out in the autumn if they have also become one of the top 130 site managers to secure the coveted Seal of Excellence.

The Pride in the Job Awards have been run for the last 33 years to credit those with leadership, technical expertise, robust health and safety management – and a special X factor.

Darren Maddox, Linden Homes South East managing director, said: “Ian fully deserves his award for the way he has managed the development. The proof is in the pudding, and Century Gate is fantastic – full of expert finishes and superb quality.

“High standards are part of our building philosophy at Linden Homes, so it’s very encouraging individual staff members have been recognised by the industry. We’ll keep our fingers crossed for the Seal of Excellence announcements later in the year.”

Century Gate is a high quality, gated collection of three, four and five-bedroom detached houses blessed by good connections, a village vibe and a family-friendly calm. They nestle next to playing fields where Kent County Cricket Club plays in the summer.

Stylish and elegantly traditional on the outside, each house comes with high specification fixtures and fittings, plus a 10-year NHBC warranty and two-year customer care warranty for peace of mind.
