Stuart Gillespie

MACTAGGART & Mickel is celebrating after senior site manager Stuart Gillespie won a housebuilding industry award.

He was praised after landing a Quality Award in the 2021 National House Building Council’s Pride in the Job Awards. The honour, in connection with his work at Mactaggart & Mickel’s Greenan Views development in Doonfoot, is the latest in a series of successes for Stuart. It follows four UK Supreme wins, four UK Supreme runner-up awards and 12 NHBC Scottish regional awards.

Stuart, who lives in Wishaw, said, “I’m delighted to have won a Quality Award as a reflection of the tremendous team of company colleagues and sub-contractors who have overcome immense challenges created by the coronavirus pandemic. We have been driven on by a determination to deliver homes that maintain the exceptional standards that make Mactaggart & Mickel such a distinguished company and we’re proud that Greenan Views is proving to be so popular.”

From a field of more than 10,000, Stuart was among 450 site managers to win a Quality Award in the first round of NHBC’s Pride in the Job Awards 2021. This represents the top 5% of those who entered the competition.

Peter Shepherd, Mactaggart & Mickel Homes chairman, said, “I’m really pleased that Stuart has once again achieved a quality award from the NHBC because he epitomises the exceptional standards that Mactaggart & Mickel stand for. Stuart is inspired by a determination to ensure Mactaggart & Mickel produce homes of outstanding quality and he has been a brilliant leader to colleagues and sub-contractors amid the unparalleled challenge created by Covid-19 restrictions.”

As a Quality Award winner, Stuart will now compete for Seal of Excellence and Regional Awards in the autumn, with the national Supreme Award winners unveiled in January 2022.
