Alan’s pride in the job wins big prize

Anderson Project Manager, Alan Clarke, has been recognised by the National House Building Council (NHBC) for excellence in on-site management at its annual Pride in the Job awards.

The NHBC accolade was in recognition of Alan and his team’s work on Anderson’s Faversham Lakes development, a 330-home scheme located just outside the Kentish market town of Faversham.

“We’ve placed focus on building extremely well-designed homes that feel as good to live in, grow up in, and entertain in, as they do to look at,” said Alan.

“We’ve expanded on this by enhancing existing community facilities and including further community elements in the plan.”

These include redeveloping the former Oare gunpowder works and bringing forward the remaining listed buildings as a heritage centre and several retail units. Other community assets include a new scout troop headquarters, an extended car park for the local school and a community theatre.

Alan added: “I’m thrilled to have received this award for mine and the wider site team’s role in this project. It means a lot, especially as it’s one of our industry’s most prestigious award schemes.”

Now in its 41st year, a Pride in the Job award recognises site managers who demonstrate incredible dedication, passion, commitment and leadership to produce homes of exceptional quality.

The competition is fully inclusive and representative of the UK house-building industry with four categories for different sized businesses: small, medium, multi-storey and large.
