Construction boss seals the deal with top award
Published at 11:05, Monday, 29 October 2012
THE site manager of a housing estate has been given a prestigious award.
Peter Robinson has received a seal of excellence from the National House Building Council (NHBC), a national organisation.
This is for his work at The Oaks in Longtown, where he is the construction manager.
He was quick to share the credit for his title.
“One man gets the award but one man can’t win it,” he said.
“You rely on the whole team from the architects to all the different trades on the site to maintain the highest standards.”
The prize takes into account the way in which construction is managed on estates.
This includes the finished product and the quality of work done on it.
It also covers subjects like how well health and safety regulation has been followed and the general way resources have been managed during construction.
This is the second level of a three-tier award scheme run by the NHBC.
Peter has worked in the building industry for more than 30 years, beginning his career as an apprentice plumber.
He said: “We have a great team at The Oaks and the quality of their work is reflected in the quality of the homes we build there – which is outstanding.”
Chris Middlebrook is the commercial director of Oakmere Homes, Peter’s employer, and the developer behind The Oaks.
He said: “We are delighted to see Peter receive this coveted NHBC ‘Seal of Excellence’ award which reflects his incredible efforts at delivering top quality homes.
“It is especially encouraging to see our mid-priced homes featuring in the NHBC awards, reflecting the quality standards that are maintained right across the spectrum of the developments we build.”
