THE site manager of a multi-million pound property at Cooil Dharry, near Kirk Michael, has been presented with an award for his work.
Trevor Boyles, aged 53, who works for Heritage Homes, was the area winner for Northern Ireland and the Isle of Man in NHBC’s 32nd annual Pride in the Job Awards in the single home category.
He was one of three site managers to be recognised as the area’s winners at a prestigious dinner event held at the Culloden Hotel in Belfast earlier this month.
Mr Boyles now progresses to Pride in the Job’s Supreme Gala event, which takes place in London in January 2013, where five UK supreme winners will be announced.
‘It’s nice to be acknowledged by the industry for the work you put in to a construction project, recognising of course that it’s teamwork that achieves the final result,’ he said.
‘It’s good to see a quality product through from start to finish, and a happy customer installed thereafter.’
The property is currently on the market for about £6 million.
Facilities at the five-bedroom property include a swimming pool, sauna and steam room, gymnasium, home cinema, play/games room, and staff accommodation. The master suite has two walk-in wardrobes, en-suite bathroom and balcony.
Outside, there is a horse paddock of approximately four acres.
Mr Boyles has worked in housebuilding for 30 years. During his career has also gained experience in landscaping and commercial development.
As site manager Mr Boyles was responsible for overseeing the construction of the whole of the development.
NHBC is a leading warranty and insurance provider for new homes in the UK, its ten-year Buildmark warranty covering over 80 per cent of new homes built in the UK.
NHBC customer and business development director Neil Jefferson said: ‘Trevor is delivering new homes of outstanding quality and should be rightly proud of his achievement.
‘This award marks him out as a top site manager for house building in the UK and I wish him the best of luck in the national final.’
He was a keen clay pigeon shooter until recently, representing the Isle of Man at events all over the world, including two Commonwealth Games.
And he won a Commonwealth Bronze medal in the Olympic Trap Pairs event in 2006. He is now retired from the sport.
Mr Boyles now works for the company in Aberdeen.
