NHBC Pride In The Job Awards 2020
The National House-Building Council (NHBC) Pride in the Job Awards for the Wales region take place next week. Things are a little different this year, with the awards themselves taking place online due to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, but we’ll all be logging on and tuning in to find out if our dedicated Llanmoor staff will be bringing home some more awards for our shelves.
2020 marks the 40th anniversary of the Pride in the Job awards; the first stage of the awards saw 11,000 eligible Site Managers in competition for a Quality Award. These were then whittled down to 450 across the country – two of which were won by our very own Dale Dickenson and Dave Hodges.
Dale said: “This is the 6th year that I have won a Quality Award, 5 times Seal of Excellence and regional winner. Fingers crossed I can make that 6 years in a row when announced next week.”
“It gives me great pleasure and satisfaction handing over a product to the customer with exceptional quality and attention to detail. There is always a degree of negativity on social media as to new homes being built to poor standards and quality. We at Llanmoor Homes continue to prove ourselves to be the best of the best in our industry; this can’t be achieved without our site team and colleagues playing their part”.
Dale won his Quality Award for his outstanding work on the stunning Eglwys Nunydd development in Margam near Port Talbot. He now hopes to finish off 2020 with the overall Pride in the Job award at the event on 9th October.
“The success of winning such awards is down to being focused and driven to provide such high standards and quality – this is why Llanmoor keep getting recognised for these awards. The NHBC awards are like the Oscars for our industry and to be part of that makes me a proud man; I am very proud of both my site team and the Company I work for. The ultimate goal would be to be the National Supreme Champion, which would be the pinnacle of my career.”
Dave’s Quality award was for his team’s work on the Cae St Barrwg development in Bedwas, just outside Caerphilly.
“This is my first quality award with the NHBC. This year’s award has been achieved thanks to the great teamwork and commitment of everyone working at Bedwas to produce great quality in every stage of a fast-moving development. Fingers crossed we can move on and win a Seal of Excellence.”
Needless to say, we wish Dale, Dave and indeed everyone at Llanmoor continued success in their roles, whether it be in the offices or out on site. We are proud of our team as much as we are of our quality builds and are sure that the team will be bringing home the silverware for many years to come.
