National Award for Perth Site Manager
Published on 26 July 2019
A Perth Site Manager has secured his 16th ‘Pride in the Job’ award.
Alan Robertson has received a Quality Award from the National House Building Council (NHBC) awards in respect of his role at Stephen’s flagship Clathymore development, by Gleneagles.
Alan, who joined the Perth housebuilders as an Apprentice at the age of 16, previously won 15 ‘Pride in the Job’ awards for his role at the firm’s Balgarvie development in Scone. Alan moved from the Scone to Clathymore development last year.
Now in their 39th year, ‘Pride in the Job’ celebrates the exceptional contribution site managers make in creating homes of outstanding quality. With around 16,000 site managers competing for the awards, this year’s 450 Quality Award winners have been hand-picked for their excellent standards on site. Following 12 many months of rigorous judging, these first round winners excelled and will now go on to compete for the Seal of Excellence Awards and Regional Winner titles.
The news comes hot on the heels of Stephen being voted the first Scottish-only builder to receive a five star rating in the Homes for Scotland customer satisfaction survey.
Having received his first ‘Pride in the Job’ award in 2011, Alan commented, “As a family run business, it’s fantastic to gain national recognition for the work we do each day. It’s particularly pleasing to receive this award for our work at Clathymore after so much success at Scone.
“This award recognises the work of the entire team and the fact that we have received consistent praise from NHBC makes me very proud but this award is not just for me – every member of the Clathymore team has excelled, from electricians, plumbers and bricklayers to joiners, painters and forklift drivers. Without their commitment on site each day, we would not be winning such high praise.”
John Stephen, Managing Director of Stephen added, “Our success as a company very much depends on the teams on the ground and their efforts in achieving a consistently high-quality product is of paramount importance. Alan has built an enviable reputation for quality and his unwavering commitment to high standards filters through to each and every member of the team. I would like to thank Alan and his colleagues at Clathymore for their continuing support and commitment in making the development the success that it is today.”
