A SITE manager at Bellway Homes' Primrose Meadow development in Great Sankey has been awarded his first National House Building Council (NHBC) Pride in the Job award.

Paul McKeever has worked in the construction industry for more than 36 years, starting off as a joiner before moving into site management 20 years ago.

The Pride in the Job scheme is dedicated to recognising the industry's best performers and is a prestigious accolade that site managers strive to achieve.

To win an award, site managers must score highly in all areas of the build process including quality of workmanship, technical expertise, health and safety and management and leadership.

Judges are also looking meticulous and consistent attention to detail and the special qualities and attributes that set winners apart from the rest.

Paul said: "In today’s busy and fast paced construction climate, it is great to be recognised for doing a good job and I am delighted to receive my first Pride in the Job award.

"It is testimony to the ongoing hard work and continued commitment of the entire team here at Primrose Meadow that we are able to work together to deliver top quality new build homes for our customers."

Construction director at Bellway Homes, Ian Hopkins added: "The Pride in the Job award is one of the most highly regarded accolades for site managers in the housebuilding industry and it takes leadership, hard work and a continued commitment to quality to be recognised by the NHBC. It is super news for Paul and the team.”

Located on Liverpool Road in Great Sankey, Primrose Meadow is a new development of three, four and five bedroom detached and semi-detached homes.

Bellway Homes bought the land from United Utilities and planning permission for the properties was granted in April last year.

The name of the development was inspired by Warrington Wolves and the first residents began moving in earlier this year.
