Nick Smith, site manager for leading housebuilder, Redrow, has been awarded a Seal of Excellence Award at the NHBC Pride in the Job Awards.

Following his win of a prestigious Pride in the Job Quality Award in June, Nick represented Redrow South East in achieving the Seal of Excellence Award, cementing his outstanding contribution to the housebuilding industry.

The NHBC Pride in the Job Awards celebrate the efforts of the UK’s most committed site managers, as the UK’s most prestigious awards in the industry that judges across 16,000 sites in the UK. After winning a Pride in the Job Quality Award, the top site managers per region are selected amongst the other winners to achieve a Seal of Excellence Award.

Nick Smith has an integral role in the delivery of Redrow’s flagship Ebbsfleet Green scheme, comprising of 950 homes and a host of community amenities. Nick has been involved in the construction industry since the age of 16, when he undertook a National Diploma in Construction at college. Joining Redrow in 2010, Nick started as an assistant site manager, and has since become project site manager, leading the Ebbsfleet scheme.

Nick said:Building a family home and surrounding community to the highest possible standard is an extremely important job. To win such a prestigious award within the industry is an amazing achievement – not just for myself, but the entire team and subcontractors that played such an integral part in it. The Seal of Excellence Award shows that every bit of hard work, commitment and attention to detail really doesn’t go unnoticed and is worth going the extra mile for.”

Ben Fewsdale, Regional Director at Redrow South East, commented: “Following the success of our site managers at the Pride in Job Awards back in June, where the South East division secured five awards, it is fantastic to see Nick Smith go on to win a Seal of Excellence. It is excellent to see that the hard work we put in at South East has been recognised, and that we have such high calibre site managers, which Nick’s win demonstrates.”
