Yorkshire based Harron Homes is celebrating 26 year-old Zak Green who has been recognised by the National House Building Council (NHBC) Pride in the Job awards for his work as site manager on The Hawthornes development in Carlton.

The NHBC is the UK’s leading home warranty and insurance provider and its flagship Pride in the Job award is one of the most highly regarded competitions in the industry, showcasing best practice and rewarding excellence.

This isn’t the first time Zak’s hard work has been recognised since he started his construction career as an apprentice bricklayer in 2012. The Barnsley local won Apprentice of the Year 2015/16, as well as Assistant Site Manager of the Year in 2018. Zak has been aiming for an NHBC award since he joined the Harron team as site manager at its Kings Croft development in Killinghall near Harrogate, in 2020.

Zak commented, “I’m over the moon to receive this award! In every job I’ve made it my mission to go above and beyond to create homes of the best quality and that effort is definitely paying off. Of course I couldn’t do it without the brilliant team around me. Everyone on site cares about the quality they are producing on a daily basis, especially my assistant site manager, Simon Giles, and I’m grateful for their hard work and support every day.”

Andy Hall, Harron Homes Yorkshire construction director added, “Huge congratulations to Zak and the team at The Hawthornes, it’s fantastic that his hard work is paying off and recognised by such a prestigious organisation. The award is a real reflection on the high standards to which our teams work. We aim to create high-quality homes which we can only achieve through the dedication and hard graft of our fantastic teams at all of our sites.”

NHBC Chief Executive Steve Wood said: “For more than 40 years, Pride in the Job has been an important part of our work to help drive construction quality. Winning Site Managers tell us that it inspires them to give a little extra and to strive harder for ever-higher standards of house building.

“Congratulations to all the 2022 Pride in the Job Quality Award winners. They are an inspiration to us all and should be very proud of the quality of new homes they are creating.”
