Construction workers on Ballymore’s Royal Wharf development in London’s docklands have won the Seal of Excellence for Site Management accolade at the national 2018 NHBC (National House Building Council) Pride in The Job awards.
Praising his team, project manager Joe Cashman said: “This award is a credit to everyone working on the site and is recognition from NHBC of the hard work we have put in as a team to make this site better in every aspect over time.”
The Quality award is awarded to 400 sites out of 16,000 active NHBC sites in the UK, 60 of which are represented in London and South East region. From those, 18 sites were awarded the Seal of Excellence - with four going on to be crowned regional winner in the categories of small, medium, large and multi storey.
“In the past year we have made great strides by first being put forward for a quality award, then winning and followed on with the Seal of Excellence award. To go up three steps in a year is a fantastic achievement,” added Joe.
“We must now push on as a team and look to achieve these awards again next year - with our new goal being to win the Regional award in 2019. It will be possible to do this by making sure we continue to improve the quality of works on site. A large part of this is getting consistency across the board on all aspects of the build. We are not there yet so we need to keep working hard to achieve this.”
Royal Wharf is a new riverside development east of Canary Wharf comprising more than 3,300 new homes, from townhouses, to contemporary duplexes and apartments.
