DARREN Evans, of Elan Homes Ltd, is one of only 40 site managers in the North West to have won a Quality Award in the first round of NHBC Pride in the Job Awards 2018.

Now in their 38th year, the Awards are the most highly regarded competition in the house-building industry, dedicated to recognising site managers who achieve the highest standards in house building.

The 450 Quality Award winners across the UK represent the top 3 per cent of the sixteen thousand site managers entered into the competition.

Being selected by NHBC as one of the UK’s top site managers is testament to their commitment to building homes of outstanding quality for the benefit of the people who will live in them.

NHBC Regional Director Ian Davies said: “Pride in the Job recognises the hugely important role site managers play in delivering high quality new homes and receiving a Quality Award is a great achievement for any site manager.

“Darren’s role is undoubtedly one of the toughest in house building and his drive for excellence is very much at the heart of the competition.

“We wish Darren the very best of luck in the next stage of the competition.”

Darren will now go on to compete for Seal of Excellence and Regional Awards that will be announced at an event in Manchester in October, with the Supreme Award Winners unveiled at a gala ceremony in January 2019.
