A Site Manager for Barratt Homes in Milton Keynes has won a top national award for the quality of the homes he is building from the National House-Building Council (NHBC).
Sam Foglia (36) who is the Site Manager at Brooklands on Fen Street has been recognised by the NHBC for their annual Pride in the Job Quality Awards.
Sam, who has worked for the homebuilder for two years, picked up his first Pride in the Job Quality Award this year.
He said: “This is such a massive achievement for me and it just hasn’t sunk in yet but I’m over the moon.
“I’d like to thank the team around me and the sub-contractors for all of their support, it’s been a real team effort and it’s great to be building for such a reputable brand like Barratt Homes.”
Known as the “Oscars of the housebuilding industry”, the Pride in the Job Quality Awards recognise the best run building sites in the country and are the highest accolade a site manager can achieve.
This year in total 84 site managers at parent company Barratt Developments won a Pride in the Job Quality award which is more than every other housebuilder. This is now the 15th year in a row that Barratt has won more of these prestigious awards than any other housebuilder.
In addition to spot checks from the NHBC, site managers are judged on their consistency, attention to detail, leadership, technical expertise and health and safety, with just 450 individual winners being chosen from over 16,000 entrants.
This year also marks the tenth year Barratt Homes has been awarded five stars by the Home Builders Federation (HBF) for customer satisfaction. For Barratt Homes to be awarded five stars means that more than 90% of its customers would be happy to recommend their home to a friend.
