Quality, award-winning homebuilding

When buying a new home, you want to be able to choose a homebuilder you can trust. We're proud to be an award-winning homebuilder with award-winning staff, providing quality new homes across the UK.

NHBC Pride in the Job award winners

Yet again we are proud to announce that we have won an incredible 74 Pride in the Job Awards for 2017-2018, more than any other national housebuilder for the 13th year in a row.

NHBC Pride in the Job is the home-building industry’s most prestigious awards programme, dedicated to recognising Site Managers who achieve the highest standards in quality home-building. A Pride in the Job award is the highest industry accolade a site manager can receive.

Each year as part of the awards, the NHBC join with leading experts in the home-building industry to rigorously judge over 16,000 Site Managers across the nation. Winning a Pride in the Job award requires consistently high scoring across a variety of categories, including:

  • Quality of workmanship at every stage of the build process, including foundations, roofs, surface finishes and external works
  • Leadership skills, which are reflected by a high level of morale and motivation on site
  • Technical expertise and their ability to resolve issues on site
  • A certain ‘X’ factor that sets them apart from their peers

From this marking process 450 Site Managers receive quality awards, and are then eligible to receive one or more of the next stage of the awards. All 74 of our winners will now proceed to the next stage of the awards.

NHBC has been recognising and rewarding the best site managers in the UK for the last 37 years and is regarded as the highest industry accolade a site manager can receive. This year’s winners were selected from more than 16,000 sites across the UK.

NHBC is the UK’s leading standard-setting body for new homes, and this achievement reflects our ongoing commitment to raising the standards.

1 x Supreme Winner in the Large Builder category

One Supreme Winner is chosen from the regional winners of each of the five builder categories, and this prestigious award recognises the highest level of quality. The title of Supreme Winner is awarded to just five site managers nationwide. We are delighted that Henry Patecki, Site Manager for our Forest Chase development in Leicester, was awarded the ultimate accolade of Supreme Winner in the Large Builder category.

The Supreme Awards celebrate the exceptional contribution Site Managers make in creating homes of outstanding quality.

23 x Seals of Excellence

The Seal of Excellence awards follow the initial quality awards where by 130 site managers are announced winners, with the winners split by region. Our site managers achieved 23 Seals of Excellence.

5 x Regional Best Site Managers

From each region of the Seal of Excellence award, one winner is selected from each of the five builder categories, which are single home, small, medium, large and multi-storey. Martin Beard from Hanham Hall, Bristol, and Kirk Raine from Webbs Meadow, Telford, were both named Best Regional Site Manager for their regions in the NHBC’s Large Builder category.

We're a five-star quality award-winning homebuilder

Each year the Home Builders Federation conducts an independent customer satisfaction survey. Customers are asked ‘Would you recommend your builder to a friend?’ and homebuilders are awarded a star rating from one to five based on the answers given.

We have once again been awarded the maximum five stars, and are the only major national home builder to achieve this every year since 2009. Knowing that over 90% of our homeowners would recommend us to their friends* allows us to continue our work providing some of the best new homes in the UK.

* Based on HBF star rating scheme from 2010 to 2017 derived from the NHBC national new homes survey (at eight weeks) over 90% of Barratt Developments PLC group customers would recommend our brands to a friend.

Housebuilder of the Year

We are pleased to have been named Housebuilder of the Year at the prestigious Housebuilder Awards.

The awards ceremony is organised by Housebuilder magazine, and is supported by both the NHBC and HBF. The awards recognise excellence in a range of housebuilding disciplines, and we are delighted to have scooped Housebuilder of the Year in the Large Housebuilder category.
