Pershore site manager scoops award for quality home-building

Evesham Editorial 24th Jun, 2024   0

A SENIOR site manager at a Persimmon housing development in Pershore has won an award for quality home construction.

Dan Mills was one of 19 site managers from Persimmon Homes to achieve the UK-wide Pride in the Job Quality Award, which celebrates dedication to producing the highest quality homes, more than double the company’s tally for last year.

Dan, who has been with Persimmon Homes South Midlands since 2019, has secured this award for the third time. He started out in the industry nearly a decade ago as a labourer.

Persimmon Homes South Midlands is currently constructing 198 homes for local people at the Orchard Mews development with a mixture of sizes and architectural styles.

Pride in the Job is the most highly regarded competition of its type in the homebuilding industry and a prestigious benchmark for exceptional site managers.

Every site manager on a site registered for an NHBC Buildmark warranty is entered into the competition, with Quality Award winners going forward to the Seal of Excellence Award round.

Should they be successful again, they have the opportunity to be a Regional Award winner and have a shot at the final Pride in the Job Supreme Awards in January 2025.

Dan said: “I am really proud to have been given this award for all I have accomplished at Orchard Mews alongside my hard-working team who deserve this award as much as I do.

“It is really important to me that we produce high quality properties, not only for the professional pride we feel in doing a job, but because we know that house will become someone’s home where they can build their life and take care of their property.

“So, I want to share this recognition with my fantastic team on the Orchard Mews site.”

Russell Griffin, Managing Director at Persimmon Homes South Midlands added:

“I am really happy for Dan because I know just how hard he works to lead his team to get great results for customers in their quest for a house they’d love to live in.”
