Safe As Houses: Linden Homes Site Manager Wins Pride In Job Award (Saxon Gardens - 2015)
01 Jul 2015

The site manager at Linden Homes Midlands’ Saxon Gardens development in Huntingdon has been honoured for his professionalism with a national Pride in the Job Quality Award.

For the second year running, Kevin Bishop from Peterborough was recognised by judges on the National House Building Council’s programme for his leadership, technical expertise, robust health and safety management.

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.

Kevin, along with two other LHM site managers, was selected from over 15,000 entrants from around the country for a Quality Award and will now join the shortlist for best in the East region and the Seal of Excellence.

These will be presented to the UK’s top 130 site managers out of the 430 Quality Award winners.

Kevin said: “Winning this award for the second consecutive year means an incredible amount to me, but it’s been a team effort to maintain such high standards. Without everyone’s commitment we couldn’t achieve a really well run development or deliver top quality homes.

“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.”

Linden Homes Midlands’ managing director Mike Coker said: “Competition for the NHBC awards is fierce. I am delighted for Kevin, the other site managers and their teams and that they have been recognised by the NHBC for the high quality of their work. Good luck to the them all in the next stage of the awards.”

Andrew Richards, group managing director for housebuilding, said: “At Linden Homes we pride ourselves on the quality of our homes and the skill of our employees, and these awards reflect exactly that. Congratulations to all our winners and in particular Kevin who has won the award for the second time.”
