Hartford Homes site manager Dominic McGreevy has scooped a coveted ‘Pride in the Job’ award for the second time is his career, recognising his work on a super-luxury property in Douglas.
The National House Building Council has named Dominic as a Single Home Commendation Award winner in the first round of its annual awards programme, considered as the construction industry’s most prestigious competition.
Dominic, who has worked for the local family-run building firm for five years, said: ‘It’s an honour to be acknowledged for my and our work on Belvedere House at Montreux Court.
‘It’s all down to the support of a great and fully integrated team at Hartford who have helped create such an extraordinary property.’
The award comes as Hartford nears completion on the four-storey home which spans an impressive 16,000 square foot, featuring six en suite bedrooms, an indoor swimming pool and gym suite, as well as an expansive glazed rear overlooking Douglas Bay.
This is the fourth time Hartford Homes has picked up a Pride in the Job award in the last five years, with Dominic previously receiving a Quality Award in 2012 for his work at Royal Buildings, a luxury apartment development in Onchan.
Running for 35 years, Pride in the Job is the only British Isles -wide competition dedicated to recognising site managers who achieve the highest standards in house-building.
Hartford Homes director James Greenhalgh said: ‘It is really great for Dominic and the whole team at Hartford to have won another NHBC award.
‘We as a company strive to deliver quality homes and go that extra mile so it’s great to see recognition of that.’
Dominic is one of only three site managers to be selected for a single commendation award in the Northern Ireland and Isle of Man region.
He is among just 450 site managers out of a nationwide pool of around 15,000 who will go forward to the next stage, competing for the seals of excellence and regional awards in the autumn.
During his time at Hartford Homes, Dominic has also managed work on a 22,000 square foot individual property in Abbeylands, a block of 30 apartments in Onchan and seven detached £1M-plus homes on The Links development in Peel.
