A Peters Village site manager has won a prestigious housebuilding award for his work there.
Gary Nott of Ashberry Homes’ Thames Gateway division was one of just 14 site managers in the South East of England to be awarded a Seal of Excellence as part of the National House Building Council’s (NHBC) Pride in the Job awards.
Gary, 52, received the accolade in recognition of the high standard of his work at Ashberry Homes’ Victoria Gardens development at Peters Village on the Medway riverside near Wouldham.
He was nominated for the prize after winning his third NHBC Pride in the Job Quality Award earlier this year – recognition earned by just 450 site managers from some 11,000 across the UK.
Gary (pictured left) said: “To win a Seal of Excellence award is an amazing feeling and a great reward for all the hard work put in by the team at Victoria Gardens. This is my first Seal of Excellence after three Quality awards, but I’m not finished yet. Next year, I want to go one step further and achieve a Regional Award.
“It has been tough to get going again after a complete (Covid-19) lockdown. Building and completions took slightly longer than normal, but safety was a priority for all of us onsite and we achieved the goals we set at the beginning.
“Victoria Gardens is now nearly complete, and buyers have been extremely pleased with the quality of the homes we’ve built at the development.”
John Haggerstone, Construction Director for Ashberry Homes Thames Gateway, said: “Gary and his team have worked exceptionally hard to win this award and everyone at Ashberry Homes Thames Gateway congratulates them on their achievement.
“The Seal of Excellence is regarded as one of the top accolades in the industry so, to earn this recognition underlines that quality of construction and customer service they have delivered at Victoria Gardens.
“We thank Gary and his team for their continued hard work during these challenging times and wish them the best of luck as they strive to go one better and achieve a Regional Award next year.”
