GreenSquare Homes’ site manager wins quality award

A site manager at GreenSquare Homes has been recognised in the first round of the Pride in the Job Awards 2020 from the National House Building Council (NHBC). 

Martin Bance has been selected for a Quality Award for his outstanding management of GreenSquare Homes' development Hares Chase. 

Nearly 450 UK site managers have won a Quality Award in the first round, representing the top 4% of the 11,000 site managers entered. Being selected as one of the UK’s top site managers is testament to their commitment in ensuring excellent standards on site and the quality of construction they’re managing.  

This year marks the 40th anniversary of the NHBC's Pride in the Job Awards. The awards are the most highly regarded competition in the house-building industry. Judging is a rigorous process, with each site manager assessed across these six key areas: consistency; attention to detail; leadership; interpretation of drawings and specifications; technical expertise; and health and safety.  

"I am over the moon", said Martin, on his win. "It is great for GreenSquare Homes as it really shows that we are providing a quality product. I was thrilled to be honoured with this award last year too, so I can't believe I have won another!"

Ordinarily, Quality Award winners are invited to attend the NHBC Regional Pride in the Job Awards events in the Autumn when the Seals of Excellence and Regional Awards in each category are announced. However, due to Covid-19, the live events aren't taking place this year. Instead the NHBC is looking into new ways to appropriately recognise the winners. 

Tony Knight, Operations Manager at GreenSquare Homes said: “I am so pleased for Martin and would like to congratulate him, and his team, on this well-deserved win. It is an absolute testament to his hard work – which he has maintained so consistently that he has won this award two years in a row for his work at Hare's Chase. 

"We might be relatively small developer, but we are all whole heartedly committed to delivering high quality homes, built at the highest standards – and that is something we are very proud of."
