Brian Griffin, project manager at CALA Homes’ 59 Lansdown development in Cheltenham, has been named one of the top site managers in the South West for the second year running in the prestigious National Housebuilding Council (NHBC) Pride in the Job Awards.
Brian received the highly-coveted Regional Award in the Multi-Storey Builder category and will now go on to represent the South West at the national Supreme Awards in 2021. Brian had already received a Quality Award from the NHBC earlier in the year, putting him in the top four percent of site managers in the country, as well as a Seal of Excellence Award.
The Pride in the Job Awards, now in its 40th year, recognises commitment, leadership and passion in delivering new homes to the highest possible standards and is one of the highest industry accolades a site manager can receive.
Brian and his team are responsible for the 59 Lansdown development in Cheltenham, a unique collection of Regency-style villas and spacious apartments on the site of the former police headquarters on Lansdown Road.
Andy Dicker, Regional Managing Director for CALA Homes Midlands, comments: “We’re absolutely delighted for Brian and the whole team at 59 Lansdown. These awards recognise a personal and unwavering commitment to creating homes of the highest standard and to be recognised as the best in the South West region in his category for a second consecutive year is a fantastic achievement.
“2020 has seen unprecedented challenges for us all, but the commitment to provide the best possible homes for our customers remains our number one priority. We’re creating something really special at 59 Lansdown and my thanks go to Brian and his team for continuing to take pride in the job year on year, and delivering an exceptional development for Cheltenham.”
The NHBC Awards’ rigorous process includes spot checks of the day-to-day running of a site, and individual assessments across 37 different areas of site management, including technical knowledge, quality and consistency.
Brian said: “I’m absolutely thrilled to have received a Regional Award for the South West for the second year running. It’s incredible to have been recognised by the NHBC once again in such a highly regarded competition within our industry. I’d like to congratulate my fellow winners in other categories and, above all, share my award with the whole team at 59 Lansdown who work hard every day to ensure the highest quality build on one of CALA’s most luxurious and aspirational developments.”
59 Lansdown is a collection of Georgian-inspired five bedroom villas and one and two-bedroom apartments, close to the popular Montpellier district and within walking distance of Cheltenham town centre.
