Great Site Managers Build Great Homes


I was fortunate enough to attend the grand final of the 2010 Pride in the Job awards last week with our three regional award-winning site managers who were all in the running to receive a Supreme Award from the NHBC.  Another first for Miller Homes as this was the first time we have had three winners out of the total 34 across the UK.

The Pride in the Job Awards are the most prestigious for site managers in the industry and we were extremely well represented this year. Pat Malyn Scott Brown and Barrie Dobson worked tirelessly to win Pride in the Job Quality Seal of Excellence and Regional awards to qualify for the Supreme Awards ceremony.

An enormous amount of work is required from each Pride in the Job candidate: They have to create a portfolio of written materials undergo inspections and interviews in order to qualify and win in the various heats. This rigorous process ensures that each site manager matches the highest standards required of Pride in the Job winners which also translates into better quality homes for our customers.  That is why I am always exceptionally proud of each and every site manager that is awarded an accolade through this process.

We celebrated a huge success this year with 22 of our site managers picking up awards in the various heats demonstrating their commitment to quality of build and dedication to delivering the best products in the industry.

My thanks go especially to Pat Scott and Barrie who really did do us proud to win those coveted Regional accolades. This has been one of our most successful years and for three of our guys to get to this stage in the competition is an exceptional achievement.

Although we didn’t come away with any Supreme Awards it gave us the opportunity to celebrate the huge achievements of our regional award-winning site managers and reflect on the fact that all our site managers really do take exceptional pride in their jobs and have a continued commitment to quality.

As our Pride in the Job Award flags fly on each of the developments across the country our customers can rest assured that Miller Homes build the best quality homes because we have the best quality site managers!
