Spencer Edwards is one of only 450 people to win a coveted quality award for excellence in on-site management from around 16,000 site managers across the UK.
He has received a Pride in the Job accolade from the National House Building Council, which has been running the awards scheme for almost 40 years.
Spencer, who lives in Lichfield, has been in the construction industry for 25 years, starting as a plasterer.
He joined Cameron Homes last year and received recognition for his management of the new homes Aylesbury Park development in Lapworth, Warwickshire, where a Grade II listed 18th century manor house is being refurbished into five townhouses and 12 detached homes are being constructed in the grounds.
He commented: “I want to thank everyone I work with as this is a team effort – without us all pulling together we would not have achieved this,” commented Spencer, who was also highly commended in a National House Building Council health and safety awards scheme this month.
Chief operations officer of Cameron Homes, Paul Morrissey, said that site managers had to go through several rounds of rigorous inspections at various stages of the development being built.
“Spencer has worked tremendously hard to develop his on-site team and reach the exacting standards required. The achievement is well-deserved and reflects the high quality of construction at our sites – it is good news for him and our customers at Aylesbury Park,” he commented.
The Pride in the Job programme has been running for 39 years and now Spencer, and his colleague Rakesh, manager at Cameron Homes’ sister company Galliers Homes, who was also singled out in the programme, will go on to compete for a higher level award at a National House Building Council dinner this autumn.
Judging for the awards is meticulous, beginning a year before the announcement of the first round of winners. As well as undergoing spot checks of the day-to-day running of their site, each site manager is assessed across 37 areas of site management, including their technical knowledge, consistency in the build process and the quality controls they have in place.
