Jay Kerman from Mortimer Park in Driffield, won the Pride in the Job Seal of Excellence award. Organised by the National Housebuilding Council (NHBC), the awards are highly regarded in the housebuilding industry. The Mortimer Park development is sold out, and a new phase is set to open in spring 2024, with 200 new properties, including one, two, three, and four-bedroom homes, as well as a new sports field and three play areas.
The Seal of Excellence accolade is awarded to those who have displayed exceptional leadership, forward thinking, and commitment to quality in the construction and housebuilding sectors. They recognize Site Managers dedicated to achieving the highest standards in housebuilding and committed to building homes of outstanding quality for their customers. Site Managers are assessed in six key areas: consistency, leadership, interpretation of drawings and specifications, technical expertise, attention to detail, and health and safety.
Every Site Manager registered with the NHBC is automatically entered into the Pride in the Job Awards, with only 450 winners selected from over 11,000 entrants in the first phase of judging. Of the initial entrants, just four regional winners were named, with 20 site managers rewarded the Seal of Excellence in the North East of England. Barratt and David Wilson Homes Site Managers have won a total of 96 Pride in the Job Quality Awards, and this is their 19th consecutive year leading the industry.
Daniel Smith, Managing Director at Barratt Developments Yorkshire East, expressed pride in Jay Kerman’s achievement and highlighted the company’s commitment to customer care and building high-quality homes. Barratt Developments has multiple developments within the East Riding of Yorkshire, including Mortimer Park in Driffield, The Sands in Bridlington, Harrier Chase in Brough, Minster View and Queens Court in Beverley, and Hesslewood Park and Fleet Green in Hessle.
