A site manager at a Bloor Homes development in Amesbury is celebrating after winning a prestigious industry award.

Simon Steele, who is in charge at the King’s Gate development off Penny Lane, has received a Quality Award in the 2016 Pride in the Job Awards, putting him among the top rank in his profession.

Run by the NHBC (National House Building Council), Pride in the Job recognises those who achieve the very best standards in construction and is the highest accolade that a site manager can receive.

The Quality Awards are decided by NHBC Building Inspectors who rate site managers on their attention to detail, quality of workmanship, technical expertise and leadership qualities. 

Simon, took over at the development two and a half years ago, said: “I’m absolutely delighted. It’s a great reward for all of the efforts of my team who have done such a fantastic job in making Kings Gate such a top quality site.

“Making sure our customers are 100 per cent happy will always be our top priority but it does mean a lot to be recognised by the industry for doing a good job.”
Simon will now go forward to the Pride in the Job regional awards later in the year, where he will be competing to become one of just 130 site managers to win a Seal of Excellence Award.

John Lusty, Regional Managing Director at Bloor Homes South Southern, said: “At Bloor we are rightly very proud of the quality of our developments so we are delighted that Simon’s efforts at King’s Gate have been recognised with a Pride in the Job award.

“The accolade is a testament not only to Simon’s excellent leadership qualities, but also reflects the outstanding contributions by the whole team at King’s Gate who have worked tirelessly to make the development a success.

“Simon richly deserve this award for his commitment and willingness to go the extra mile for his customers and we wish him all the best in the regional finals later this year.”
