NHBC Pride In The Job
NHBC Pride In The Job Award

Hertfordshire builder named as one of UK’s best house builders

Stewart Cutmore of Gable Construction (Southern) Ltd has been honoured for his dedication to building homes of exceptional quality in the first round of the annual NHBC Pride in the Job Awards for his site in St Albans, Hertfordshire.

Now in its 37th year, Pride in the Job, organised by NHBC, the UK’s leading new home warranty insurance provider, is the most highly regarded competition in the house-building industry dedicated to recognising site managers who achieve the highest standards in house building.

Around 450 site managers have been recognised for their commitment to building homes of outstanding quality. Judging for the awards is rigorous, beginning in July 2016, with each site manager assessed across 44 areas of site management, including technical knowledge, consistency in the build process and the quality controls in place.

Competing against more than 16,000 site managers, Stewart is one of the 450 recognised for their commitment to building homes of an exceptional standard. These site managers will now go on to compete for a Seal of Excellence and Regional Awards in their category, with the Supreme Award Winners announced at a gala ceremony in January 2018.

Commenting on the Awards, Toby Philips, NHBC Regional Director said:

“Every year, the NHBC Pride in the Job Awards give us the chance to recognise the dedication of the UK top site managers and their commitment to new home quality.“

“The strength of this year’s entries coupled with the judges’ long and hard deliberations should give great pride to Stewart and his team.”

Prestigious award win recognises house-building site manager’s success - for a second year


Homebuyers can be assured of the quality of new houses built by Gable Construction in Harpenden, following the announcement of site manager Stewart Cutmore as a winner in the Single Home category in the first round of the annual Pride in the Job Awards organised by NHBC (National House-Building Council). Stewart Cutmore is now shortlisted for a regional title.

Award-winning site managers display the utmost care, professionalism and attention to detail in their work. Stewart Cutmore’s win for his site, Collens Road, in Harpenden, demonstrates Stewart Cutmore’s success in building high-quality houses for homebuyers and their families.

Stewart Cutmore beat off intense competition to bag the accolade, with only 446 Pride in the Job Quality Award and Single Home first-round winners shortlisted from over 15,000 UK site managers working on housing projects registered with NHBC, the UK’s leading warranty and insurance provider and standards setter for new build homes.

Stewart Cutmore, Gable Construction’s Managing Director, talking about the win, said:

“I am delighted to have won this prize for a second year. In the 24 years my family business has been building bespoke homes in Harpenden and St Albans, we have always sought to create the highest quality homes for families, and so I am honoured that the NHBC has recognised me with a Pride in Job award for the second time.’

Nick Cunningham, NHBC Regional Director, said:

“A Pride in the Job Award marks recipients out as top performers, showing their true diligence and commitment to producing the best quality homes possible. By recognising exceptional site managers, NHBC promotes best practice in house building, bettering the construction quality of new homes year on year for homeowners and their families.”
