Building on his success

A SITE manager for a North-East housebuilder has been recognised as one of the best in the country for managing a building site.
Steve Cook, from Wolviston, near Billingham, who works for Yuill Homes, was named the supreme winner in the medium builder category at last year’s National House Building Council (NHBC) Pride in the Job Awards for overseeing construction work at Yuill Homes’ College Gardens development, in Billingham.
Up against 13,000 entrants from across the UK, the 41-year-old was one of five site managers recognised for their achievements.
David Mullins, managing director at Yuill Homes, said: “I’m incredibly proud of Steve for winning such a prestigious national award.
“His dedication to managing a building site is second to none and his team also deserve the recognition for creating such an outstanding housing development.”
NHBC chief executive Mike Quinton said: “Steve has consistently built homes of exceptional quality, having been shortlisted in both 2010 and 2011.
“The judges this year were extremely impressed at the standards Steve maintained on site.
Steve can be rightly proud of his achievement, which puts him at the top of his profession.”
