Newquay site manager wins industry award

Housebuilder CG Fry & Son has seen the site manager at its Newquay development announced as a winner of the first round of the prestigious NHBC Pride in the Job Awards for the third year running.

Brendan Leech has been hand-picked for his work at CG Fry & Son’s Nansledan development in Newquay. The landmark development in Cornwall is currently marketing a selection of new homes.

Recognised within the house building industry as the highest accolade a site manager can receive, the Pride in the Job Awards has seen the CG Fry & Son site manager selected from 16,000 across the UK.

Brendan will now go on to compete for the Seal of Excellence and South West Regional Winner titles with other site managers across the South West.  The winners will be announced in October.

The award represents success for the site manager and their team, and they are judged across a wide range of criteria.

This includes consistently achieving high standards of workmanship from all trades on-site, demonstrating attention to detail in every aspect of the site, having the technical expertise to resolve any issues during the building process and maintaining excellent levels of morale and motivation within the team. 

Kevin Murch, Construction Director for CG Fry & Son, commented: “We are delighted that this year our site manager, Brendan Leech, has been recognised for his work at our Nansledan development and has won the award for the third time. 

“We are also proud to announce that in total, four of our site managers from developments across the southwest have won NHBC awards. Winning NHBC quality awards is a testament to the fact that as a company we are achieving our main aim to deliver quality homes for our purchasers, and this is a huge achievement.”
