A MUSSELBURGH site manager has received one of the industry’s highest accolades.

Gavin McCann, who works for CALA Homes at the new Ravensheugh Brae development off Haddington Road, has been recognised in the 2021 Pride in the Job Quality Awards by the National Home Building Council (NHBC).

He joins 16 site managers from across the CALA Group to receive the accolade for his contribution to creating homes of the “highest quality” and showcasing “best practice”.

More than 11,000 site managers across the UK were assessed this year, with only 450 winners selected, putting those awarded in the industry’s top four per cent for striving to deliver new homes to the highest possible standards.

The awards have been running for four decades.

As well as undergoing spot checks of the day-to-day running of their site, each site manager is assessed across 37 different areas of site management, including technical knowledge, quality and consistency.

Mr McCann, from Dunfermline, will now go through to the next stage of the competition, the Seal of Excellence, which will be announced later this year.

He said: “To secure the Pride in the Job accolade is a real honour.

“Knowing that our team at Ravensheugh Brae has achieved this following stringent site inspections is testament to their hard work and professionalism.”

Craig Lynes, managing director with CALA Homes (East), said: “The Pride in the Job Awards recognise site managers who, along with their teams and sub-contractors, deliver excellence for our customers every day.

“It is our teams on the ground who bring our homes to life, ensuring the vision for each development is delivered on time, safely and to the highest quality standards.

“Over the past year, more than any other, site managers have had to overcome unprecedented challenges, but the commitment from Gavin and his team to deliver the highest quality standards has been unwavering. We wish the team at Ravensheugh Brae all the best of luck as the awards progress on to the next stage.”

Ravensheugh Brae is a mix of 36 three, four and five bedroom homes.
