Another Top Industry Accolade for a Building Site Manager in the Knowle Area of Bristol

Pride in the Job Awards 2013

For the second year running a building site manager responsible for a residential development in the Knowle area of Bristol has won one of the highest industry accolades site managers can receive.

Dave Beckey (49), whose home is in Kingswood and has worked with housebuilder Cotswold Homes Ltd for several years, has been shortlisted from more than 13,000 entrants to receive one of the industry’s coveted Pride in the Job Awards.

They have been presented annually for 33 years by the National House-Building Council (NHBC) to the site managers whose work achieves the highest standards. The NHBC, which sets industry standards to protect homeowners, is the leading provider of warranties and insurance for UK housebuilders.

Dave’s award will be presented during a special ceremony at Bournemouth International Centre in September.

After 12 months of rigorous judging, Dave is justifiably proud to receive the award in recognition of his work on the company’s recently completed development of 14 new homes at The Villas in Redcatch Road in Knowle. Last year he won a similar award in respect of his work on Cotswold Homes’ Mulberry Grove development of 14 homes in Morley Road in Staple Hill.

Says Tormarton-based Cotswold Homes’ construction manager Guy Edge: “It is a huge commendation and achievement for NHBC awards to be won by a relatively small company like ours. The business was established only about ten years ago and employs just 12 people.

“On all our sites we strive to achieve building deadlines without compromising on quality. These awards provide an independent endorsement of the calibre of our approach and the meticulous and consistent attention to detail which are hallmarks of our construction standards.”

In a further tribute to Dave’s achievement, Cotswold Homes’ commercial manager John Fricker added: “His attention to detail and customer care is remarkable but he would be the first to point out that the key to his success is the support of the entire Cotswold Homes team. We repeatedly receive complimentary comments and letters from customers who appreciate our personal approach.”
