Tamworth site manager wins his third top award

A project manager from Lichfield has received a prestigious National House Building Council (NHBC) Pride in the Job Quality Award for his work at a development in Tamworth.


Ian Larkins received the award for excellence in on-site management at the Redrow Midlands development, Amington Garden Village.


Running for 40 years, the NHBC’s Pride in the Job scheme is dedicated to recognising the industry’s very best performers and is a prestigious accolade that site managers aspire to achieve.


To receive an award, site managers must score highly in all areas of build and site management including quality of workmanship, technical expertise, health and safety and leadership. Judges look for meticulous attention to detail and the special qualities and attributes that set quality, award-winning site managers apart from the rest.


Ian, who has worked for Redrow Homes for 11 years, has been based at Amington Garden Village since its launch eight years ago. This is his third NHBC award, receiving his first in 2020.


Elaine Cartwright, Sales Director for Redrow Midlands, said: “We are all overjoyed that Ian has received his third Pride in the Job Quality Award. This is a wonderful testament to his dedication, determination, and love for each and every home developed at this thriving community.


“The Pride in the Job Award is something that many site managers strive for, so it is truly an outstanding achievement and well-deserved – Ian, congratulations!”


Commenting on his award win, Ian said: “Winning the award is an incredible accomplishment. Every time we hand over a completed new house and surpass clients’ expectations, I know we’ve created a fantastic new home for a family. Building a solid team that share my values has been critical to the development’s success, and I’d like to thank them for all of their hard work – I wouldn’t be able to do my job without their ongoing support.”


Amington Fairway, Amington Green and now Eagle Gate at Amington are part of the popular Amington Garden Village development, which offers a choice of two, three, four and five-bedroom properties. These sought-after homes are part of Redrow’s award-winning Heritage Collection and located just three miles from Tamworth’s town centre. The development provides a rural setting with excellent commuter links, including easy reach of the A5, M42 and M6 Toll.


Taking full advantage of the lighter evenings, sales offices at all developments across the Midlands will be holding late night events, staying open until 7.30pm to accommodate busy schedules.
