Shaun Marshall and Ken Baker were both highly commended at the 2016 North West LABC Warranty Awards for their work at Bloor Homes’ Saxon Gate development, putting them among the top four site managers in the region.

The pair have forged a formidable partnership during their 18 months at the Saxon Gate development off Parkers Road in Crewe, having previously worked at another Bloor site in Ellesmere, Shropshire.

Shaun, who has been with the company for the past six years, said: “It’s a great honour to be recognised by the judges and I’m especially delighted to be sharing my success with Ken.  We have worked really well together over the last few years and we’ve built up a very strong team of tradespeople on the site.”

The 51 year old also picked up the award for LABC Residential Site Agent of the Year for Cheshire during the prize-giving ceremony at the Macron Stadium in Bolton.

His assistant Ken, 67, who has spent 20 years of his career with Bloor Homes, added: “As site managers our reward comes when you hand over the keys to a satisfied customer, but this award is like the icing in the cake.  We’re really pleased with the quality of product we have achieved at Saxon Gate.  It’s a fantastic site and the team there are a pleasure to work with.”

The LABC Warranty awards celebrate the outstanding contribution of site managers who have a vision for quality and who go that extra mile to deliver the highest standards in construction.

LABC Warranty business development director and head judge, Mike Swatton said: “The standard of qualifiers across the board has been exceptional, once again raising the bar for construction standards.”
