Burley in Wharfedale Senior Site Manager secures National Pride in the Job Award

Mick Waters

This marks the second time Mick has been recognised by the NHBC, after previously winning a Quality Award for his work at McCarthy Stone’s Priestly Court development in Ilkley.


The Pride in the Job Quality Award recognises his leadership and commitment to quality in all aspects of the work currently underway at Summer Manor Retirement Living development, offering low maintenance and independent living apartments designed exclusively for people aged 60 and over.


Running for 43 years, the Pride in the Job accolade recognises Site Managers across the country who are at the top of their profession and are creating homes of an outstanding high standard. Judging for the awards is rigorous, and each site manager is assessed across six key areas: consistency, attention to detail, leadership, interpretation of drawings and specifications, technical expertise and health and safety. This year, thousands of site inspections and meticulous scoring and verifications have taken place to decide the winning site managers.


A total of 443 winners have been selected from more than 15,000 entrants, meaning Mick is amongst the top 3% to receive the award in recognition of his leadership and commitment to quality in all aspects of the work at Summer Manor. Mick will now go on to compete for the NHBC Seal of Excellence once again this autumn.


Commenting on his award success, Mick, who has been with McCarthy Stone since 2017, said: “At McCarthy Stone, every aspect of our work is considered and conducted thoroughly. I am deeply proud of the entire site team working here at Summer Manor, as each and every one has had a part to play in securing this award, and they have all been instrumental in improving the quality and detail of the development.


This ethos and a lot of hard work has helped us consistently deliver developments, like this one in Burley In Wharfedale, to the highest standard.”


John Tonkiss, McCarthy Stone CEO said: ‘’All of our Site Managers work incredibly hard to deliver the very highest quality developments with outstanding professionalism. I am thrilled that Mick’s ongoing dedication has been recognised by such a prestigious award. Congratulations, it’s a well-deserved achievement.”


NHBC’s CEO Steve Wood added: Pride in the Job is firmly at the heart of NHBC’s mission to raise standards in the housing industry. It is important we recognise the vital role Site Managers play in ensuring new homes are delivered on time, safely, in addition to meeting construction quality standards. We’d like to say a huge congratulations to Mick for his achievement.”
