Two Countryside site managers have been recognised in the NHBC Pride in the Job Awards 2017.

Two Countryside site managers win Pride in the Job Quality Awards for London partnership projects

Michael McDade, who manages Countryside’s East City Point site at Canning Town, and Steve White, who manages the Brook Valley Gardens site at Dollis Valley in Barnet, are among the 42 London first-round winners in this awards programme, which celebrates the best site managers in the homebuilding industry.

East City Point is a partnership between Countryside, Newham Council and Affinity Sutton, while Brook Valley Gardens is being developed in partnership with L&Q.

Pride in the Job is the only UK-wide competition dedicated to recognising site managers who achieve the highest standards in housebuilding. It has been instrumental in driving up the quality of new homes for 37 years and is the most highly regarded competition in the housebuilding industry. Site managers are automatically entered if they are working on a site registered for NHBC warranty.

Michael and Steve join five other Countryside site managers working on projects elsewhere in the UK, who will now go on to attend the Regional Award ceremonies to celebrate their achievement and compete for a Seal of Excellence and Regional Award in their category.

Graham Cherry, Chief Executive of Countryside Partnerships South, said: “The Pride in the Job Awards are a well-respected mark of quality and we are exceptionally proud of Michael and Steve as well as all those working on these projects, whose hard work and high standards have helped mark these sites out as some of the best in London.”
