A project manager in Edinburgh has been recognised for his hard work at the Scottish house-building industry’s most prestigious award ceremony. 

Phil Hadley, from Stirlingshire won the Regional Award in the Multi Storey Category at the National House Building Council (NHBC) Pride in the Job awards lunch in Glasgow for his work on Barratt’s City Haven development in Leith.

Having worked with Barratt Homes for the past four years, Phil has previously won the Pride in the Job award for his work at City Haven which started in June 2013.

Regarding his win, Phil said, “It’s a major achievement winning the Pride in the Job regional award. But this success is the result of the hard work of my team and I want to say thanks to them for their individual efforts. City Haven is a fantastic development in the heart of Edinburgh which is perfect for those who like the buzz of the city. Each home has been designed with this in mind with contemporary kitchens, great storage and en-suite facilities.”

The Pride in the Job Awards is the most coveted in the house-building industry. They are awarded after the construction standard setting body National House-Building Council (NHBC) carries out a series of spot check site inspections to select the best-organised and best-quality housing developments.

Brian McCalmont, construction director for Barratt Homes in the East of Scotland, added, “Phil and his team have done an amazing job at City Haven. Winning this award is a real testament to that and the fact that Barratt East is building quality homes in desirable areas across the country.”

Phil will go through to the final round of the NHBC’s Pride in the Job Awards, the Supreme Awards in London, to compete with regional winners for the UK Pride in the Job title.
