A SITE manager in Holmfirth has won an award for building exceptional homes.
Adrian Burridge, of Burridge Homes Ltd, is among the winners in first round of judging for the annual National House-Building Council Pride in the Job Awards.
He is now shortlisted for a regional title for his Marsh Road development in Holmfirth.
Pride in the Job recognises outstanding quality in house-building throughout the UK, rewarding the best site managers, who are responsible for managing the construction of new homes from start to finish and have a unique influence on the overall quality of the finished product.
Mr Burridge was shortlisted for a first-round Single Plot Commendation from more than 13,000 site managers across the UK.
He joins a select group just under 450 who have excelled in 12 months of rigorous judging. All aspects of the homes they built are assessed against stringent criteria defined by NHBC.
Isabel Hudson, executive chairman of NHBC, said: “For over 30 years, Pride in the Job has been one of the cornerstones of NHBC’s work to improve housing standards for the benefit of home-owners. It has been extremely successful over the years in promoting and encouraging best practice on site.
Regional Winners will be announced in the autumn, with successful individuals then progressing to the final in London nest January in London.
