In the running for a national award

Posted onPosted on 19th Aug

The construction team at a housing development in Mansfield is among the first to be recognised as a regional winner in a national construction awards scheme.

The Avalon development is one of 31 across England, Scotland and Wales shortlisted in the Persimmon Homes Construction Excellence Awards.

Neil Follows, managing director of Persimmon Homes Nottingham, said: “We want to celebrate the people who take personal ownership of their work, taking genuine pride in the homes they hand over to our valued customers.

“It is a team effort at Avalon. Under the leadership of site managers, Alan Fox and Adam Revuelta, they have built a great team and are committed to delivering on quality and care.”

Group construction director Andrew Fuller added: “Over the past two years Persimmon has undergone a comprehensive review of operations, resulting in the introduction of The Persimmon Way – a national framework for construction and customer care quality which is transforming the business.

“These awards will identify those site teams that have embraced The Persimmon Way and demonstrated initiative and outstanding management skills, encouraging everyone involved on their development to excel.”

Key to the implementation of The Persimmon Way was the appointment of a team of Independent Quality Controllers (IQCs), who assess every single plot under construction at key stages and only allow work to continue if Persimmon’s higher standards have been met.

These IQCs, together with senior management and directors, consider site management teams across a rigorous set of criteria and those that exceed the highest quality standards are nominated for Persimmon’s Construction Excellence Awards.

Each of the 31 nominated teams now compete to be named top of their division before overall gold, silver and bronze winners are announced.
