Site managers set the standard for development

Two Spalding site managers have received high praise for their work on a South Holland development.
Andrew Smith and Greg Wimsey are joint managers of the Kier Living Eastern site on Kingfisher Court in Spalding.
The duo were selected from 16,000 site managers to be among 450 winners at the regional National House-Building Council (NHBC) Pride in the Job awards for 2016.
They were among five other managers from Kier sites across the region who were commended at the awards.
Judging has been taking place over the last year, including spot checks of the day-to-day running of each site.
The managers were all assessed across a number of areas of their work, including technical knowledge, consistency in the build process, leadership and organisational skills.
Tom Kitchen, who is the NHBC health and safety operations manager, felt that those gaining accolades should be proud of their efforts.
He said: “For more than 35 years, our Pride in the Job awards have played a pivotal role in our work.
“They aim to raise standards across the industry, through the celebration and sharing of best practice.
“Site managers that win are creating houses of an extremely high standard.
“Only site managers who demonstrate exceptional standards in every aspect of their work on site and in the homes they build are considered for an award.”
Each of the commended site managers will be invited to a regional awards ceremony on Friday, September 16, at Athena in Leicester.
Further judging will take place over the next few months to crown a national winner who will be announced at a ceremony in January at Westminster.
Mark Smith, Kier Living Eastern’s construction director, was thrilled at his site managers’ nomination.
He commented: “We are delighted that our site managers have met the strict criteria set by the NHBC.
“Taking pride in our work is something to which we are all committed across Kier Living Eastern. It’s fantastic that these hard-working site managers have been recognised in this way.”
