Mere site manager wins industry award

Housebuilder CG Fry & Son has seen the site manager at its Mere development announced as a winner of the first round of the prestigious National House Building Council’s (NHBC) Pride in the Job Awards.

Andy Davey has been hand-picked for his work at CG Fry & Son’s ‘Woodlands’ development in Mere. The development comprises a mix of two, three and four-bedroom houses on the southern edge of the beautiful historic town.

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.

Andy will now go on to compete for the Seal of Excellence and South West Regional Winner titles with other site managers from 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, Andy Davey, has been recognised for his hard work at our Mere development and has won his first NHBC award.

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