CG Fry & Son is once again celebrating the outstanding achievement of its Poundbury development Site Manager, Steve Walker, who has been named as the Supreme Winner at the prestigious NHBC Pride in the Job Awards for 2020 at the virtual award ceremony held on 26th February 2021.

Steve was selected for his superb dedication and excellence in building homes of outstanding quality. The awards come after twelve months of rigorous judging and three previous stages.

A Pride in the Job Award is the highest industry accolade a site manager can receive, celebrating the exceptional contribution that site managers make to creating homes. The winners this year were selected from more than 16,000 individuals across the UK and the competition is known as the Oscars of the House Building industry.

The meticulous judging process culminates in the finalists being judged on six key areas: consistency, attention to detail, leadership, interpretation of drawings and specifications, technical expertise and health and safety.

The awards play a pivotal role in the drive of the NHBC to give consumers confidence in the quality of new build homes.

Kevin Murch, Construction Director for CG Fry & Son commented: “We are absolutely thrilled to see Steve win the 2020 Supreme Award in this the 40 year anniversary of the NHBC Pride in the Job competition. Steve was previously recognised with the Supreme award in 2015, 2016 and 2018, 2019. The 2020 award makes this a year on year hat trick, a fantastic achievement!

He is also an eight times winner of the Regional Awards, so this recognition is testament to both his hard work and that of the whole team at Poundbury.

For CG Fry & Son, this is an endorsement of our commitment to build homes of the highest quality for our customers.”

Steve Walker said: “I am so proud to have been chosen again as a Supreme Award winner. To achieve a hat trick in the competition is a true reflection of the quality being delivered here at Poundbury.  Everyone on the CG Fry team, through hard work and commitment, contributes to the quality homes that we are delivering.”
