Two Summerfield Homes Site Managers Win Prestigious Awards

On Friday 6th November 2020, the Summerfield Homes Team celebrated the achievements of Mark Woodland and Clive Linham who were both presented with NHBC Pride in Job Awards at the ceremony that was held online that afternoon.

Clive Linham won a Quality Award for his work developing Summerfield’s complex brownfield site on Monmouth Street in Bridgwater which was a partnership scheme with SHAL Housing Association. Mark Woodland was awarded with an NHBC Seal of Excellence for his outstanding work at Killams Park, Taunton. The Seal of Excellence Award is given to select finalists who achieved a Quality Award earlier in the year. Mark was one of only seventeen Managers across the South West to be awarded a Seal of Excellence.

The NHBC Awards are one of the most highly regarded competitions in the house-building industry, dedicated to recognising Site Managers who achieve the highest standards in house building. Across the UK 450 Site Managers out of over 11,000 entries won a Quality Award with only a small number winning Seal of Excellence Awards.

Judging for the Awards began in 2019, with each Site Manager assessed across these six key areas: consistency, attention to detail, leadership, interpretation of drawings and specifications, technical expertise, and Health & Safety.

Director of Summerfield Ed Khodabandehloo commented on the achievements of both Managers;

‘We are all immensely proud of Mark and Clive and it’s a great achievement for them both to be recognised by the NHBC for their outstanding work. With Mark winning an NHBC Seal of Excellence Award at Killams Park, his fourth NHBC Award and second Seal of Excellence for this site, he has officially put Killams Park into a league of its own for Somerset. It’s testament to his hard work and that of the wider team that Killams Park has become such a desirable place for people to live.’
