NHBC, the UK’s leading new home warranty and insurance provider, has announced that two of the Braidwater Group’s site managers have received its flagship Quality Award at this year’s national Pride in the Job awards.

Braidwater Group site managers Colin Martin (site: Castlehill) and John Paul Gibbons (site: Beech Hill View) were both recognised, for the second year in a row, for the vital role they play in ensuring new homes are delivered on time, on safe sites and to exacting construction quality standards.

Headquartered in Eglinton and with developments throughout Northern Ireland, The Braidwater Group has over 40 years’ experience in the house building industry.

Darren Farnan, marketing manager of the Braidwater Group, said:
“Pride in the Job is the most highly regarded competition in the house-building industry and congratulations to Colin and John Paul who have been duly recognised and for the second year in a row. Being selected as one of the UK’s top site managers is a testament to their commitment to delivering quality homes for our customers. Judging for the Awards is rigorous with each site manager assessed across six key areas: consistency, attention to detail, leadership, interpretation of drawings and specifications, technical expertise, and health and safety.

‘’The Braidwater Group continues and will always strive for excellence, going above and beyond the assurance of building top quality homes.’’

From a field of more than 11,000, 450 UK site managers have won a Quality Award in the first round of NHBC’s Pride in the Job Awards 2021, representing the top 5% of those who entered.
