The site manager of an Edinburgh housing development has fought off the competition to pick up a prestigious UK building industry award.
Scott Brown, who has nearly 25 years’ experience in the building industry, was awarded the National House-Building Council’s (NHBC) Pride in the Job Supreme ‘multi-storey builder’ award in recognition of his professionalism, creativity and expertise.
Scott, who oversees the Miller Homes’ Varcity South development in Fettes, won the Scottish regional ‘multi-storey builder’ title in October and was put forward for the Supreme Award. After being shortlisted from over 15,000 original award entries, he came out on top against the other seven regional winners in the category.
“To win an NHBC Supreme Award, the UK’s top award for the house-building industry, is every site managers’ dream,” he said.
“Varcity South is a unique development and as a team we take great pride in making this development a popular place to live.”
Established in 1934, Miller Homes has built more than 100,000 houses, across the UK. Stewart Lynes, managing director of Miller Homes Scotland, congratulated Scott on his achievement:
“We are delighted at Scott’s success and he should be very proud of what he has achieved,” he said.
“As a company, we pride ourselves on being able to deliver the best possible standards for our customers, and Scott’s achievement is testament to our commitment of achieving that goal.”
Mike Quinton, NHBC Chief Executive, said: “Pride in the Job is something we at NHBC are incredibly proud of. Site managers are pivotal to the success of any project, and rewarding them through Pride in the Job is one of the most important things we do each year.
“The Awards has driven up standards in new home construction right across the UK for over three decades, and the benchmark for success rises year on year as entrants battle to be the best. The field of competition is huge, so winning is a definitive mark of success.”
