Ballymore site manager’s dedication and expertise rewarded

Site manager Martin O’Byrne has been recognised for the “dedication and expertise” he brings to his work at London City Island.

Selected from among more than 16,000 UK site managers, O’Byrne was one of 13 to receive a Seal of Excellence at the NHBC Pride in the Job Awards 2016 at a ceremony at Park Plaza Riverbank earlier this month.

The award was in recognition of his work as shell and core project manager at the new island neighbourhood currently underway at Leamouth Peninsula close to Canary Wharf. O’Byrne, who has been based at London City Island for two years and worked on Embassy Gardens Phase One and Wapping Phase One previously, said the award was an endorsement of the whole team and the high standards they maintain:

“It has my name on it, but it’s for the whole team working on the project,” said O’Byrne, who has worked with Ballymore for 18 years. “It’s all to do with the quality of the project here, and it’s the attention to detail and the staff with their technical knowledge that really got us the award.”

Congratulating O’Byrne on his win, NHBC Regional Director Mehban Chowdery said: “The fact that winners are automatically entered into the competition based on the results of their work onsite is a huge endorsement for all winners.

It’s been a tough year of judging starting way back in July 2015 and it’s a long hard road to win a Pride in the Job Award. The Awards recognise site managers who know how to go one stage better, whose hard work ensures we live in high quality homes and rewards dedication and expertise.”
