ROB Bennett of Jones Homes won a Seal of Excellence in the second round of the NHBC Pride in the Job Awards 2019 at The Hilton Manchester Deansgate.

He was honoured for his dedication to building homes of a very high quality before an audience of 400 for his site The Sanctuary in Wilmslow.

Now in its 39th year, Pride in the Job, organised by NHBC, the UK’s leading warranty and insurance provider for new homes, are the most highly regarded in the house-building industry.

They recognise and reward a site manager’s dedication to achieving the highest standards in house building, and their commitment to building homes of outstanding quality.

Site managers are automatically entered into the competition if they are working on a site registered for NHBC warranty. The competition is free and the winners are decided by a panel of expert judges making site visits; Rob showed impressive dedication to achieving the highest quality on his site.

Darren Horner, NHBC regional director said: “A site manager’s job is one of the toughest in house building and they carry out a role that has many hats.

“They are the pivotal part in building someone’s home, ensuring it is built on time and on budget while maintaining high quality and the safety of everyone onsite.

“To reach this level of the competition means you are at the very top of the house-building industry. Rob is without doubt building homes to an exceptional standard and is a worthy winner.”
