Bishopton Site Manager Wins National House Building Award

Award-winning site manager Paul Cunningham, has once again beaten off stiff competition from thousands of entries to be honoured with a prestigious NHBC (National House Building Council) Pride in the Job Quality Award.

This year’s award is for his work at Taylor Wimpey’s Dargavel Village development in Bishopton, and follows a string of previous wins in these annual awards including a ‘Seal of Excellence’ top ten ranking in 2013, and the overall top site manager in Scotland in 2012 for his previous development in East Kilbride.

This year’s award, which is one of 70 won by Taylor Wimpey site managers around the UK, recognises Paul’s dedication to building high quality homes for new home buyers, and ranks Dargavel Village in Bishopton in the top developments in Scotland.

Pride in the Job Quality Awards are presented following a stringent judging process by NHBC inspectors who perform spot checks and continuous assessment of developments throughout the year. The Quality Awards also provide homebuyers with the assurance that the development provides top quality homes and excellent customer service.

“It’s exciting to have reached this stage of the competition once again with a new site team, and to be recognised by the industry in this way.”

Steven Laurie, production director for Taylor Wimpey West Scotland adds: “We are committed to maintaining the highest levels of quality and customer service, and this has ensured that we continue to be an NHBC award-winning homebuilder year after year.

“Paul is a consistently strong performer in the NHBC Awards and has enjoyed immense success including a Seal of Excellence top ten ranking last year, and he secured the overall Scottish winner spot in 2012.  His Quality Award for his new site at Dargavel Village this year is once again thoroughly deserved.  We’ll be supporting him as he progresses through to the regional heats in Glasgow, and hopefully to the grand final in London.”
