Prestigious Award for Guild Homes Site ManagerNeil Hardie
Angus firm Guild Homes is celebrating success at the Scottish National House Building Council (NHBC) annual Pride in the Job awards.
At the Glasgow ceremony, senior site manager Duncan Moon scooped a prize for the company’s Strathmore Fields development in Forfar.
In addition to being one of the 41 Scottish winners of a quality award, Duncan was just one of nine recipients of a seal of excellence accolade. He then went on to win the overall Scottish regional award in the small builder category.
The success means he will now fly the flag for Scotland in the national Pride in the Job gala in London in January, where he will compete for the supreme award.
The Pride in the Job award recognises the UK’s best site managers – celebrating the vital role site managers play in ensuring new homes are delivered on time, on safe sites and to exacting construction standards, they have run for 40 years.
All sites registered with NHBC are automatically entered into the competition with categories for small, medium and large builders.
Judging takes place over an 18-month period.
Guild Homes director Robin Guild said: “We are delighted that Duncan’s skills and commitment have gained this well-deserved national recognition at the Pride in the Jobs ceremony.
“While Duncan has won several previous quality awards, we were thrilled, given the strong competition, that he won a seal of excellence and then went on to take the regional award for our Strathmore Fields site in Forfar.
“It’s a well-deserved recognition of the standards he exacts and his attention to detail to consistently deliver the quality standards we as a company are committed to providing to our customers.
“This success would not be possible without the team efforts of all our workforce.”
Strathmore Fields is a 236-house development under construction by Guild Homes (Tayside) Ltd off Kirriemuir Road, Forfar.
Work commenced on site in 2019 and already close to half of the houses are occupied with many more at an advanced stage of construction – all are pre-sold.
The firm has lodged a bid for a 245-home extension of the site west towards the Forfar bypass.
