Bellway site manager receives second Pride in the Job award

Maurice Lynch, senior site manager at Bellway’s Somerford Gate development in Congleton, has received his second Pride in the Job award from the National House Building Council (NHBC).


Part of a team of three heading up construction at this superb development of new homes on Black Firs Lane, 48-year-old Maurice has once again been recognised as one of the UK’s most exceptional site managers setting the benchmark for excellence on site.


Along with his colleagues, assistant site manager Gary Brown and trainee assistant site manager Shaun Miller, the trio impressed the judges with their exacting standards and commitment to only the highest quality across all areas of the construction process.


One of the most highly regarded awards in the housebuilding industry, Pride in the Job has been in existence for more than 40 years and is a prestigious accolade that site managers strive to achieve.


Judging is a rigorous process that covers all key areas of the construction process including quality of workmanship, technical expertise, health and safety, management and leadership and site managers must score highly in all areas to win.


This is the second time that Maurice has received a Pride in the Job award; his first was in 2012 at Bellway’s Williamson Place development in Edge Hill in Liverpool. Hugely experienced with a meticulous approach and consistent attention to detail, he has worked in construction for more than two decades starting his career as an agency forklift truck driver before being taken on permanently by Bellway and working his way up to senior site manager.


“It is wonderful to receive my second Pride in the Job award,” said Maurice, “The whole team works so hard to maintain consistently high standards across all areas of build on site so to be recognised by the NHBC is a huge professional achievement for us.  It’s also great for our customers who can be reassured that our homes are of the highest quality.”


Managing director at Bellway North West, David Williams, commented: “Winning a Pride in the Job is not easy.  This award is thoroughly well deserved by Maurice and the team at Somerford Gate and we are all very proud of them.”


Boasting a sought-after semi-rural location, Somerford Gate is an attractive development of one, two, three, four and five bedroom properties offering homebuyers a superb mix of high quality new build houses, maisonettes and bungalows.  Located close to the centre of Congleton, it offers easy access to the historic market town centre, open green space and nearby towns of Macclesfield, Crewe, Stoke and also Manchester city centre.
