NHBC Event Celebrates Ray's Success
10 Aug 2015

Linden Homes held an event at its exclusive Beechfield Grove development in Plymouth to congratulate site manager, Ray Voisey, on his NHBC (National House-Building Council) Pride in the Job Quality Award.

A representative from the NHBC presented Ray with a certificate and everyone who had contributed to the development was invited for a hog roast and a slice of Ray’s NHBC cake, provided by a local cake maker.

Demonstrating exceptional standards in every aspect of his work on site and in the homes he builds, Ray was selected as one of the 430 best site managers from more than 15,000 entrants working on housing projects registered with NHBC.

Ray was praised for his “meticulous and consistent attention to detail”, “quality of workmanship”, and “excellent leadership, technical expertise and robust health and safety processes” in addition to a “certain 'X' factor”.

Ray lives in Chudleigh and has worked for the company for over 20 years, commenting on his award he said: “Winning this award means a lot to me but it’s been a team effort to maintain such high standards. I’ve loved creating Beechfield Grove, it’s a beautiful development and I feel incredibly proud of the finished result.

“What’s particularly encouraging about this award is that it highlights the determination we have at every step of the way to deliver homes that our customers enjoy living in. It’s really good to have that publicly recognised by the industry.”

Dave Blackman from the NHBC said: “Congratulations to Ray. It really is a fantastic achievement and he should be incredibly proud of Beechfield Grove, his hard work and dedication to the job shows in every aspect of the build.”

Linden Homes South West managing director Nigel Palmer said: “It is testament to Ray and the whole team that the quality of homes produced at Beechfield Grove has been acknowledged as one of the highest in the country.

“Competition is really fierce and we’re absolutely thrilled that Ray has been recognised – we wish him all the best in the next round.”

Pride in the Job is one of housebuilding’s most prestigious awards and for the last 34 years it has been run to strengthen standards in the industry.

The site managers will now be put forward for the Seal of Excellence Awards which will be presented to the top 130 site managers out of the 430 Quality Award winners.

Ray has been responsible for the delivery of Linden Homes’ exclusive Beechfield Grove development. Featuring just 12 properties, Beechfield Grove is set in a peaceful residential area, located between Hartley, Mannamead and Peverell. The luxurious four and five bedroom detached homes are available for sale.
