Nigel Smith, site manager for Darren Smith Homes, has been awarded the most highly regarded achievement in the construction industry, the NHBC Pride in the Job Supreme Award. Announced on Friday 19th January 2024 at the London Hilton NHBC Gala, Nigel received this prestigious award for his work on East-Thorpe Court in Mirfield.
The NHBC Pride in the Job is now in its 43rd year, with over 8000 site managers entering this year’s competition from across the UK. Nigel is one of only five recipients of the Supreme Award. Each category awards a winner, with Nigel receiving his award for the multi-storey category, encompassing all projects of up to and including seven storeys for multiple occupancy.
Nigel’s triumph is of outstanding magnitude as he overcame huge competition including runners up The Hill Group, the UK’s second largest privately owned housebuilder.
Steve Wood, NHBC CEO said;
“These awards play a pivotal role in NHBC’s drive to give consumers confidence in the quality of new-build homes. Congratulations to all the 2023 Pride in the Job Award Supreme winners and runners up. They are an inspiration and should be very proud of the quality of new homes they are creating.”
Brothers Darren and Nigel Smith often joke that they’re “just a couple of brickies who wanted to build a few houses” which goes to show just how incredible this accomplishment is. Despite their humble nature, they have always prided themselves on the quality of their work, as well as their impeccable attention to detail.
On receiving this award, Nigel Smith said;
“I am delighted to receive this incredible accolade which is universally accepted as the absolute pinnacle in housebuilding. This award has been earned and equally belongs to all of our incredible site team, who work through all weathers and who produce amazing standards of craftsmanship that epitomises the words Pride in the Job. We hope this award further strengthens our quality reputation to give prospective home buyers confidence in purchasing homes from Darren Smith Homes.”
Nigel continues to be an inspiration to site managers all over the UK. His ethic, technical expertise, attention to detail and leadership prove to further amplify Darren Smith Homes’ exemplary reputation and house building prowess. We at Darren Smith Homes are proud of Nigel and delighted he has received the recognition he deserves for all his hard work and dedication.
We will continue to strive for perfection in all future builds, and hope that this award will encourage future home buyers to feel confident purchasing a Darren Smith Homes home.
Once again, we would like to congratulate Nigel on his outstanding success!
