A Bromford Developments Ltd (BDL) employee has scooped a prestigious construction award at a ceremony at Birmingham's ICC.

Peter Hamon, site manager for BDL, has won a National House Building Council (NHBC) 'Pride in the Job' seal of excellence - his second award from the prominent housing body in the last two years.

Bromford construction manager Archie Haywood enthused: "This is a magnificent achievement for Peter and everyone at Bromford is thrilled for him. It's great to see our people be recognised as highly as the developments they work on.

"Around 18,000 sites registered with NHBC are eligible yet only 130 seals of excellence are presented across the country so it is a hotly contested award.

"Peter is presently site manager at our new housing development, Priorsleap, at Priorslee Road in Telford. It is already clear that Peter is executing the management of that site to the highest standards also."

The seal was bestowed on Peter at the end of September for the quality of the work and his professional standards at a Bromford housing development site at Church Road, Wrockwardine, Telford.

He was also honoured with a quality award in 2010 for his efforts on the Bromford Homes site at Love Lane, Cleobury Mortimer.

Peter is thrilled at the latest acknowledgement of his standards of work: "I only joined Bromford just over three years ago so I am very proud to receive two awards from the NHBC in that time.

Every effort is being made by the whole team involved in Priorsleap to ensure we execute the same exacting standards there."

The judges score site managers on 38 activities including consistency of high standards, leadership, technical expertise through to standard of workmanship and the ability to skillfully interpret drawings and specifications.
