Quality award hat-trick for Priorsleap site manager
PRIORSLEAP Site Manager Pete Hamon is building a bit of a
reputation with his winning ways.
This is the third year in a row that he has won an NHBC (National House
Building Council) Pride in the Job Quality Award − marking him out
as one of the very best site managers in the UK.
It's a top-achieving track record that, according to the NHBC,

− and, of course, it's not just about the bricks and mortar side of

Pete, now reaching the final stage of the Priorsleap
development, said: "It is always satisfying when a such a respected
body recognises your hard work and determination − even more so now
when the bar is being raised year upon year.
"It was my personal goal at the start of the Priorsleap

Archie's praise mirrors the comments from Isabel Hudson,
Executive Chairman of the NHBC, the UK's leading standards setting and
consumer warranty body for UK homes.
"Anyone who, like Peter, gains a first-round award is already in
the top three per cent of their profession, and they can be very
proud of their achievement," she said. "The awards are highly

Pete is one of 450 site managers to receive an NHBC Quality
Award from more than 13,000 candidates across the UK.
Judges look for high-quality workmanship at every stage of the
build, excellent leadership skills, technical expertise, robust
health and safety processes and a certain "X-factor" that sets them
apart from other site managers.
As a quality award-winner, Pete goes forward to a regional
awards ceremony in the autumn and the chance of achieving another
Seal of Excellence award and possibly becoming a regional
