Site manager Ian Jerrett has collected a national award for his work on his first development for Taylor Wimpey - the Essence collection in Yiewsley.
Ian Jerrett scooped the National House Building Council's (NHBC) prestigious Pride in the Job Quality Award for the new apartments in Yiewsley, west London. It has proved so popular with discerning buyers that it has now sold out.
The 33 year old, who lives with his wife and young family in south London, says: "I've always been in the building industry and have managed to work my way up to the position of site manager. The Essence development of flats in Yiewsley was the first Taylor Wimpey site I managed and this was my first Pride in the Job award. I was over the moon - I'm still coming down from cloud nine."
The award is a tribute to the hard work Jerrett and his team has put into co-ordinating construction and customer satisfaction at the Essence development in Yiewsley, and is confirmation of the high standard of craftsmanship which goes into every Taylor Wimpey home.
"Attention to detail is key," Jerrett explains. "I was exacting about everything. I would take photos and say that's how I want this everywhere. I spent time with everyone working on the site, so they knew how I wanted every detail. I was looking for high standards and we achieved that."
Jerrett has now taken on responsibility for Taylor Wimpey's stunning new Waterside Grange development in Langley, Berkshire, and as someone who has spent his life in an urban environment, he is enjoying the experience of working on the edge of peaceful countryside.
"Waterside Grange is really picturesque," he says. "I'm from London and have always been a very urban person but it's really nice here. There are paddocks next door with horses and the Grand Union Canal right beside the site - I'm really enjoying it.
Jerrett will now go forward to compete in the NHBC's Seal of Excellence Awards this autumn.
Tim Betts, regional sales and marketing director for Taylor Wimpey, says: "This recognition of Ian's efforts is an outstanding achievement, not only for him, but for all who have supported him. This award is richly deserved and I thank Ian for his dedication."
There's a superb selection of new homes available to reserve at Waterside Grange, including stylish two bedroom apartments priced from just £205,000 and spacious three and four bedroom houses from just £335,000 and £345,000, respectively.
Waterside Grange is located off Middlegreen Road, Langley, in a peaceful setting within easy reach of day-to-day facilities. The beautiful tree-lined open space of Bloom Park, which hosts an annual canal festival, is opposite the development offering play facilities for children on the doorstep.
