A Site Manager working for David Wilson Homes Mercia, in Bicester has won a prestigious award in the National Housebuilding Council (NHBC) Pride in the Job Awards, as they search for the best-run building sites in Britain.

Simon Evans, (44) from Daventry has been awarded the prestigious accolade for the exemplary standards he sets at his development, De Lacy Fields at Kingsmere in Bicester.

Simon has beaten 15,000 site managers, judged on every aspect of their job, including technical skill, quality workmanship, customer service and site safety, to win one of the competition’s 446 Quality awards and will be eligible to receive the Seal of Excellence award in October.

Simon, said; “I am very proud to have won a Pride in the Job award, I see it as a massive achievement for not just me, but also the people I work with. It is an indication that everyone is maintaining high quality standards on a demanding site.”
