Wirral men scoop prestigious construction awards

Two Wirral site managers and one from Cheshire who work for Anwyl Homes have scooped prestigious Pride in the Job “Quality” Awards from the NHBC.

Ian Palmer won for his role in overseeing work at The Oaks at Rossbank in Ellesmere Port, and Adam Labno for Deva Green Chester. Carl Noble, from Audlem in Chesire, also won the award for Alexandra Gardens in Crewe.

They were among just 444 winners from 8,000-plus entrants across the UK. They rank among the top 42 winners in the North West of England.

Ian has won six “Quality” awards in a row, with half of them awarded while he’s been overseeing construction at The Oaks, where up to 50 people work on a typical day.

Project manager Ian, 35, from Birkenhead, explained, “This was probably the hardest one to win and the one I’m proudest of because of the volume of homes we’re delivering while maintaining quality standards.”

“It wouldn’t have been possible without the site team, including site manager Jacob Hird and my dad Ian, who’s the assistant site manager here. He has years of valuable experience in all aspects of construction so it’s great to have him involved. Having the mentality to succeed is important and we have all of the trades on site on board. We’ve created an ethos of getting the job right first time so that we are handing over quality homes to customers.”

Adam, 36, from Bebington, has worked in the construction industry in various roles since 2004 and joined Anwyl 18 months ago. He said, “This is my first Pride in the Job “Quality” Award and I’m made up to have won. As a site manager it’s great to have that recognition.”

“I’m a people person and that helps when you’re overseeing 40 people on site every day. Winning the award wouldn’t have been possible without a fantastic support network. I have a tremendous amount of gratitude to the Deva Green trades and site team.”

The Pride in the Job awards have been running for 43 years and provide a benchmark for exceptional site managers.

The rigorous inspection and scoring process includes attention to detail, leadership, interpretation of drawings and specifications, technical expertise and health and safety.

Phil Dolan, managing director for Anwyl Homes Cheshire and North Wales, said, “Being recognised in the Pride in the Job Awards is a fantastic achievement for any site manager. We’re immensely proud of Ian and Carl who’ve not simply maintained standards but exceeded them to secure back-to-back award wins.

“For Adam to win in his first full year with us is a reflection of his dedication. These awards are a symbol of quality and demonstrate to customers that in purchasing an Anwyl home they can be reassured it will be finished to a high standard.
