Yorkshire senior site manager Ben Forster has scooped a major company award for his outstanding achievement to the regional housebuilding scene.

Ben, based at the Mowbray View development in Thirsk, was one of the stand-out winners at the recent Vistry Annual Awards 2022 black-tie ceremony in Birmingham ?" taking the Individual Outstanding Achievement of the Year Award trophy.

Announcing Ben's win, Vistry CEO Greg Fitzgerald said: "There was one person who stood out above all. Ben runs a site that has 100 per cent customer satisfaction returns, has the highest SHE (Safety, Health & Environment) score in the Business Unit, and is a Pride in the Job Seal of Excellence winner! Absolutely well deserved, congratulations!"

Delighted with his award, Ben said: “This is an absolute honour, and I am thrilled to represent not only the industry in general, but the industry in Yorkshire. As an individual, I always have the support of a dedicated team for which I am very grateful.”

The Vistry Group Awards honours individuals and teams from throughout the business units, which include Bovis Homes and Linden Homes; both of which have developments across Yorkshire.

Business Units within Vistry Housebuilding and other areas within Vistry Partnerships were invited to put forward their nominations to Group, with judges then narrowing it down to the finalists based on submissions.

Vistry Housebuilding Yorkshire’s regional managing director, Scott Stothard said: “A massive congratulations to Ben and everyone else in the Yorkshire region who was nominated. Ben always goes the extra mile to ensure the very highest standard of work and professionalism not only at his own development, but in every aspect of the site manager role.

“We have had a very successful 12 months, which haven’t been without their challenges, and huge credit to our build team for their dedication, hard work and outstanding commitment to delivering quality homes across Yorkshire.”
