Workmates at Taylor Wimpey's Bluebell Croft development of new homes in Stoke were celebrating recently after their manager picked up a top award.
A Taylor Wimpey site manager at the Bluebell Croft development of properties in Stoke has picked up a coveted prize at a prestigious UK building industry awards ceremony.
Darren Clark was presented with a Seal of Excellence at the National House-Building Council (NHBC) Pride in the Job awards while taking a break from his day job at the collection of new homes for sale in Stoke.
Darren is one of three Taylor Wimpey North Midlands site managers to receive the honour, joining fellow Seal of Excellence recipients Adam Harrison, of the Dovedale Park development of new homes in Swadlincote, Derbyshire, and Andy Blower, of the Thomas Beddoes Court development of properties in Shifnal, Shropshire. The prize-winning trio were among six site managers to win NHBC Quality Awards earlier this year in recognition of their outstanding commitment to producing high-quality new homes and to maintaining exceptional standards in every aspect of building work. The other three winners were Neil Lally at The Pinnacle development of properties in Stoke, Staffordshire, Mark Peplow at the Levett Grange development of new homes in Rugeley, Staffordshire, and Kevin Titley at the Priory Gardens development in Pipe Gate, Shropshire.
Don Turner, Production Director for Taylor Wimpey North Midlands, says: "The last few years have seen Darren enhance his exceptional reputation in the trade, which has now been duly marked by success at the 2012 Pride in the Job Awards.
"The Seal of Excellence is only awarded to site managers at the top of their game, so this win means that Darren will be recognised by his peers for delivering the highest house-building standards.
"Everyone at Taylor Wimpey Midlands is delighted for all six of our award winners and I would personally like to thank them for their hard work and congratulate them for their fantastic achievements."
Seal of Excellence winners really are the cream of the crop when it comes to delivering outstanding new homes and maintaining the safest and most efficient building sites.
The recipients are whittled down from the year's Quality Award winners who, in turn, are selected from more than 18,000 NHBC-registered housebuilders running sites up and down the UK.
Each site manager undergoes a stringent selection process with independent judges visiting developments at key stages of construction to assess them on all aspects of house building. Darren Clark received his awards for his work at Taylor Wimpey's Oakhampton development, which is now sold out.
At Darren's latest development, Bluebell Croft in Stoke-on-Trent, two-bedroom apartments are on sale from as little as £99,995, three-bedroom houses from only £164,995 and four-bedroom homes from just £194,995.
Bluebell Croft is located off West Avenue in an established residential area bordered by green open space.
The development enjoys a convenient location close to a range of amenities for day-to-day living, including shops, pubs, places to eat, a supermarket, a library, a health centre, a post office, a bank and schools for children of all ages.
Nearby Stoke-on-Trent has a rich history that grew from the pottery industry, and today is a vibrant city offering great shopping and leisure opportunities. For days out a little further afield, Kidsgrove is within easy reach of both the Peak District and picturesque North Wales.
Bluebell Croft has excellent commuter links, being close to the A34, for convenient access to Newcastle-under-Lyme, plus the A50 for Stoke, while junction 16 of the M6 is just seven miles from home. Kidsgrove railway station offers regular services to Stoke-on-Trent, Derby, Crewe, Manchester and London Euston.
To find out more about the new homes available at Bluebell Croft, property-seekers can visit the Sales Centre, located off West Avenue/Old Butt Lane, Kidsgrove, and open daily between 11am and 5pm.
