A Heritage Homes site manager has every reason to hold his head high after winning a prestigious ‘Pride in the Job’ quality award for the fourth time in his career.
Mark Patton, who has been employed by the Dandara Group for the last 22 years, has been selected as a Pride in the Job NHBC Single Home Commendation Award winner for his work on Wardfell, a luxury three-storey property in Ballasalla.
Mark, who specialises in executive developments such as Wardfell, said: ‘It’s great to have been recognised again, not only for myself but also for the company and all of the local tradesmen involved in creating this unique property.’
The NHBC is the UK’s leading warranty and insurance provider and standards setter for new build homes in the UK.
Now in its 34th year, ‘Pride in the Job’ is regarded as one of the house-building industry’s most prestigious awards programmes, of which 450 honours are given throughout the British Isles.
The judging process lasts 18 months, with site managers rigorously scored against 37 pre-set criteria.
To win they must score highly for the quality of workmanship at every stage of the build.
Heritage Homes and Dandara managing director Seamus Nugent said: ‘Mark is a highly experienced senior site manager known for his professionalism and attention to detail.
‘To be nominated for one UK award is a great achievement, but to be chosen for a fourth time really highlights his genuine dedication to his profession, his projects and to his clients.
‘As a company, we are extremely proud to have Mark on board as a site manager and wish him every success in the next stage of the competition’.
Mark was selected from almost 15,000 site managers and he will now go on to compete in the next round where nominees vie for ‘seals of excellence’ or ‘regional award’ titles.
