Persimmon Homes win just 13 NHBC Quality Awards
« on: July 03, 2013, 09:16:54 am »
The NHBC has just announced the winners of their 2013 'Pride in the Job' Quality Awards.
These are awarded to the very best site managers, who were judged to build the best quality new homes out of around 13,000 assessed nationally. The competition has been running for 32 years and the NHBC say that winning an award is "the highest industry accolade a site manager can receive, most importantly, homeowners who buy a Pride in the Job award-winning home benefit from a high quality product."

Persimmon Homes constructed 8.5% of the total number of new homes built in 2012, but won just 3.2% of these awards, with just 13 quality awards being won by Persimmon site managers - and that includes the four won on their Charles Church sites. 
By comparison, Barratt (which includes the David Wilson Homes brand) won a total of 102 Quality Awards, up 31% on their impressive haul in 2012 and nearly a quarter of the awards!

The Pride in the Job competition Quality Awards give prospective purchasers a really good independent guide to which builders really do build quality new homes.
A new homebuyer is nearly six times more likely to buy a Quality Award winning new home from Barratt than they are from Persimmon homes.

A friend of mine won the very first NHBC Pride in the Job award for Persimmon's South Coast regional office in 2003.
He told me that at the NHBC awards lunch, everyone at his table (colleagues and directors) stood up and toasted his success.
He said "this is all very humbling - it is not as if I have found a cure for cancer or anything like that"
To which his assistant site manager replied:  "no its even more of a miracle, you've won an award for quality whilst working for Persimmon!"
