Terry Hay from Weymouth has been recognised for his dedication to building homes of exceptional quality in the annual NHBC Pride in the Job Awards.

Terry, a site manager for ZeroC, part of Places for People, joins the top five percent of Site Managers to win the award, with his site team, for the management of ZeroC’s Saltash Place development in Poundbury, Dorchester. From a field of more than 10,000, only 450 Site Managers across the UK have won a Quality Award in the first round of the NHBC’s Pride in the Job Awards 2021.

Pride in the Job first launched over forty years ago, and judging for the Awards is rigorous with each site manager assessed across six key areas: consistency, attention to detail, leadership, interpretation of drawings and specifications, technical expertise, and health and safety.

Commenting on his award, Terry said:


“The Pride in the Job awards are highly regarded within the housebuilding industry and it’s an incredible achievement for both myself and the whole team to be recognised for the hard work we put into the Saltash Place development. Our aim is to build the best properties we can, ensuring our customers move into their dream home in this beautiful location – it’s a real testament to the quality of homes we are delivering.”

Pride in the Job is at the heart of NHBC’s core purpose to support the delivery of high-quality new homes. By recognising the very best site managers across the UK, the competition celebrates the vital role that site managers play in ensuring new homes are delivered on time, on safe sites and to exacting construction quality standards.

The Quality Award winners will go on to compete for Seal of Excellence and Regional Awards in the autumn, with the national, Supreme Award winners unveiled in January 2022. 

Places for People’s Group Executive Director of Developments, Scott Black, said: “We are delighted that Terry and his site team have been recognised by the industry for their commitment and dedication to achieving these standards day in, day out, at Saltash Place.

“It’s a rigorous judging process and only the best in the business achieve this award. This is a reflection of the high standards he and the team upholds across the site at Poundbury in Dorchester, recognising his experience, knowledge and quality across the site. It’s the highest recognition any site manager could wish to achieve.”

Commenting on the Awards, NHBC Chief Executive Steve Wood said: “Despite the numerous challenges the industry has faced, the very best site managers of 2021 have remained focused on delivering high quality new homes for their customers. Pride in the Job winning sites have higher levels of homeowner satisfaction as these homes are among the very best in the country. Congratulations to all the 2021 Pride in the Job Quality Award winners.”

Part of the ZeroC Poundbury development, Saltash Place is a luxury development of 24 two-bedroom apartments, 6 four-bedroom villas and 4  coach houses.
