Site managers are automatically entered into the competition if they are working on a site registered for NHBC warranty.

The competition is free and the winners are decided by a panel of expert judges making site visits - Jeff showed impressive dedication to achieving the highest quality on his site.

Commenting on the awards, John Mack, NHBC director Scotland, said: “A site manager’s job is one of the toughest in house building and they carry out a role that has many hats.

“They are the pivotal part in building someone’s home, ensuring it is built on time and on budget while maintaining high quality and the safety of everyone onsite.

“To reach this level of the competition means you are at the very top of the house-building industry.

“Jeff is without doubt building homes to an exceptional standard and is a worthy winner.

“Congratulations and good luck to Jeff in the final stage of the competition.”

Jeff will now go on to compete for the ultimate title in house building, the Supreme Award which will be unveiled at a gala ceremony in London, in January 2019.
