Ian Green (56) has won a Pride in the Job award from the National House Building Council (NHBC), an award known as the ‘Oscars’ of the housebuilding industry.


In total, site managers working for David Wilson Homes’ parent company, Barratt Developments, have won 89 Pride in the Job awards this year alone – more than any other housebuilder.

This is the 20th year in a row that Barratt Developments has won the most Pride in the Job awards, having accumulated more than 1,500 individual accolades over the years. This achievement underlines just how important building high-quality homes has been to the developer over the last two decades.


Ian, from Loughborough in Leicestershire, who has been working for David Wilson Homes for a total of 13 years, has collected his 16th Pride in the Job Award, having also previously won nine Seals of Excellence and two Regional Awards during his career.

Ian said: “It’s always a great feeling to be recognised with an award, and the win for Tenchlee Place, a new site for us in Birmingham, makes it even more special this year.

“It’s a busy and demanding job, but the award is a testament to everyone’s excellent work, even with the high volume of completions undertaken in recent months. We’re proud to work on an award-winning development, and it’s something we’ll celebrate as a team.”


The awards recognise the very best site managers across the country, with over 8,000 being entered into the awards annually. Each is judged on a strict criteria including technical expertise, health and safety, leadership and attention to detail.

The competition is at the heart of raising standards in housebuilding, with the awards showcasing the role site managers play in ensuring much-needed new homes are delivered on time, on safe sites, and to the highest quality standards.

With site managers passing on their skills and industry knowledge to their teams and mentoring assistant site managers, the awards help to drive up quality standards across the industry.


Helen Lewis, Managing Director at David Wilson Homes Mercia said: “We’re so proud of Ian for achieving this prestigious Pride in the Job Quality award. It’s amazing news for both the team at Tenchlee Place and for our customers.

“To have won more awards than any other housebuilder for 20 years in a row is an incredible achievement and underlines our commitment to building the very best new homes for our customers.”


Earlier this year David Wilson Homes also achieved a Five-Star rating from its customers in the HBF Customer Satisfaction Survey, which recognises both build quality and excellence in customer care. This is the 15th year in a row that the developer’s customers have rated it as a Five-Star housebuilder, with more than 90% of its customers saying they would recommend it to a friend.
