Kent site managers scoop three prizes at top industry awards

Redrow’s South East division has won three ‘Pride in the Job Quality’ awards from the National House Building Council (NHBC).

The award celebrates the exceptional contribution site managers make in creating homes of outstanding quality. Redrow’s award-winners in the region include Jack Leslie at Ebbsfleet Green, Prageeth Harischandra at Amber Fields, and Ian Day at Oakdene.

Launched over forty years ago, ‘Pride in the Job’ is the most highly regarded competition in the housebuilding industry, with winners selected from a pool of 16,000 site managers across the UK.

The 12-month selection and judging process identifies site managers who demonstrate skills such as leadership, technical expertise and attention to detail.

Jack Leslie, a site manager at Redrow’s flagship Ebbsfleet Green development, is celebrating his first ‘Pride in the Job’ award, having joined Redrow in September 2015 as a trainee site manager. He is now focused on delivering Redrow’s 900-home community in Ebbsfleet Garden City.

For Prageeth Harischandra, this is the third ‘Pride in the Job’ award. Prageeth joined Redrow as an assistant site manager in 2016 and has since progressed to managing Amber Fields, Redrow’s scenic development in Sittingbourne.

Ian Day joined Redrow in 2015 as a site manager, rising through the ranks to focus on the delivery of Oakdene at The Hoplands, Canterbury as senior project site manager. In what is a remarkable achievement, this is Ian’s sixth ‘Pride in the Job’ award win.

Ben Fewsdale, managing director at Redrow South East, said: “The continued success of our people demonstrates the exceptional contribution our colleagues make to Redrow and our customers.

“We’re committed to giving people a better way to live, and that is enshrined in the commitment they have to bring our communities to life across the South East region.

“Many congratulations to Jack, Prageeth, and Ian, as well as the wider Redrow team and supply chain involved. Everybody’s work is greatly appreciated.
