Maidstone site manager for Barratt Homes wins national award

Barratt Homes site manager Billy Oborne has won a Pride in the Job Award from the National House Building Council (NHBC) in recognition of the quality of homes he is building at The Poppies development in Kent.

This is the 20th year in a row that Barratt has won more Pride in the Job Awards than every other housebuilder, with more than 1,500 individual awards won over the years.

The achievement underlines just how important building high-quality homes has been to Barratt Homes over the last two decades.

The NHBC Pride in the Job Awards recognise the very best site managers across the country, with over 8,000 nominated for the award annually. Each is judged on strict criteria, including technical expertise, health and safety, leadership and attention to detail. 

The competition is at the heart of raising standards in housebuilding, with the awards showcasing the role site managers play in ensuring much-needed new homes are delivered on time, on safe sites and to the highest quality standards. 

With site managers passing on their skills to their teams and mentoring assistant site managers, the awards help to drive up quality standards across the industry. 

Billy said: “It is fantastic to win this award in recognition of the quality of homes we are building at The Poppies.

“The entire site team is committed to delivering the best possible homes for our customers and maintaining high standards of health and safety and technical expertise.” 

Alex Dowling, head of sales and marketing at Barratt David Wilson Southern Counties, added: “To have won more awards than any other housebuilder for 20 years in a row is an incredible achievement and underlines our commitment to building the very best new homes for our customers, which can clearly be seen at The Poppies.

“Every customer who buys a home built by a site manager who has won a Pride in the Job Award can have confidence that their home is of the highest possible quality.”
