This award is highly regarded throughout the house-building industry and is a prestigious benchmark for exceptional site managers.

The awards recognise the site managers that have achieved the highest possible standards in new build construction. Paying particular attention to the role that they play in ensuring that new homes are delivered on time, on safe sites, and to strict construction quality standards.

Prior to winning his award, Vic was assessed across six key areas including consistency, attention to detail, his ability to interpret drawings and specifications, his technical expertise, health and safety and his leadership abilities. Thousands of site inspections have taken place across the country followed by meticulous scoring and verification to decide on the winning site managers.


NHBC Chief Executive Steve Wood commented on the Awards, saying: “For more than 40 years, Pride in the Job has been a significant part of our efforts to help boost construction quality. Site managers who have won tell us that it motivates them to give a little more and work even harder to raise the bar on new home construction standards.


“At NHBC, we think that the site manager’s skill level and the manner they motivate their staff have the biggest bearing on the final product’s quality. Pride in the Job encourages friendly competition, highlights best practices, and rewards excellence to help build high-quality homes.

Here at Seddon Homes, the new build properties on all of our developments are constructed to our renowned high-build quality. The Pride in the Job award along with our 125 years of experience in building communities further assures Seddon Home buyers that they are purchasing a top-quality new home.
