Barratt wins more NHBC Pride in the Job awards than any other housebuilder

20 Jun 2017

This year Barratt Developments site managers have won 74 NHBC (National House Building Council) Pride in the Job Quality awards, which is more than any other housebuilder. This is now the 13th year in a row where Barratt has won more Pride in the Job awards than every other housebuilder, making it the clear industry leader in site management.

The awards recognise the best run sites in the country and are the highest industry accolade a site manager can achieve. With over 16,000 site managers being assessed and with only around 450 winning a quality award each year, they are a much coveted sign of excellence within the industry.

Each of the site managers are judged on their site safety, technical skill, workmanship and customer service, plus they will also have faced a site spot check from the NHBC.

Steven Boyes, deputy chief executive at Barratt Developments, said: “To win 74 NHBC Pride in the Job Quality awards is a great achievement and one we are very proud of. It demonstrates the high standards that we demand as a company, and how important we see having well run housebuilding sites are. The awards showcase excellence in housebuilding across the industry and give customers more confidence in knowing they are buying a quality home.”

These awards closely follow Barratt Developments being named as the UK’s most recommended housebuilder after it received five stars by the HBF for customer satisfaction. Barratt is the only housebuilder to be ranked as five star by the HBF for the last eight years in a row.
