It has been extremely successful over the years in promoting and encouraging best practice on site.
“Anyone gaining an award against such strong competition can be very proud of their achievement, and the homes these winners have built should be among the best homes in the UK. I congratulate them, and wish all the shortlisted winners the best of luck for the regional finals.”
Regional Winners will be announced at Regional Awards ceremonies in the autumn, with successful individuals then progressing to the Grand Gala Final in London in January, hoping to be crowned as one of the best house-building site managers in the UK.
