National Recognition for Wheeldon

The National House Building Council (NHBC) has singled out new Bondholder Wheeldon Homes for three awards.

Kris Fenton, site manager at the Newton Fields development in Newton, Derbyshire, has been named among the top site managers in the country, alongside Adrian Heath at Wheeldon's site at Howitt Reach, Heanor, Derbyshire. Both managers earned the converted Pride in the Job award, and for Kris it was the second year running he scooped this award.

The third NHBC award which went to Paul Tuck at Wheeldon’s Matlock site was in the Health and Safety category, which is one of the hardest and most important in the building industry to achieve.

Richard Hartshorn from the National House Builder Council commented “Pride in the job is NHBC’s annual award system that was introduced in 1980 with the aim of improving standards in the house building industry. Thirty seven years later, a pride in the job award is more sought after than ever.

"It’s awarded to site managers who can demonstrate a commitment to quality, showing consistency, leadership, technical expertise and attention to detail, to ensure the homes being built by their team meet the highest standards. NHBC are proud to be associated with Wheeldon Brothers on their development. They are three of just over 400 quality award winners in the UK, chosen from over 15000 sites.”

Andy Startin, Wheeldon’s Director of Production commented “all three managers have shown that they take great pride in their work and set the very highest standards, whilst trying to encourage others to do the same. We are a great team here at Wheeldon, and put the same care and attention into looking after our customers, as we do into building our houses. We are all immensely proud of our achievements, and the homes we create for people.”
