Peterborough site manager secures top industry award

A site manager in Peterborough has been recognised for his exceptional on-site management by the National House Building Council (NHBC). 

Mark Tattershall, who heads up construction at Bovis Homes’ Hampton Water site, is one of 26 site managers in the NHBC’s East region to achieve a Seal of Excellence in this year’s Pride in the Job awards. 

The winners were announced at the NHBC’s recent East regional awards ceremony. They were selected from those who achieved Pride in the Job Quality Awards in June, which recognised the vital work and dedication of the UK’s most elite site managers. 

Tattershall scooped his first NHBC Pride in the Job award this year, which led on to him securing the prestigious Seal of Excellence. Both awards were earned for his work at Hampton Water. 

Tattershall started overseeing construction work at Hampton Water – his first Bovis Homes site – in July last year, having previously worked as a site manager with Linden Homes for three years. Both developers are part of Vistry Group, which also includes Vistry Partnerships. 

Tattershall said: “Given that this is my first year receiving a Quality Award, to come out with a Seal of Excellence is a huge honour. Attending the awards ceremony with my colleagues David and Gareth was a fantastic experience, and I felt so proud when my name was called. 

“This achievement is not a solo effort, but a reflection of the hard work of the whole site team, who’re passionate about what they do and committed to delivering high-quality homes for our customers. 

“The pandemic brought its own set of challenges, including health and safety hazards and a shortage of materials and labour, so I feel even more proud of myself and the team for securing this award in such difficult circumstances – particularly as I only took charge of Hampton Water in July last year.” 

Rob Spittles, construction director for Vistry East Midlands, said: “This award recognises the exceptional quality and craftmanship of the properties being delivered at Hampton Water. 

“We are really proud of Mark and his fellow colleagues, and consider ourselves very fortunate to have a site team that we can be certain are building exemplar homes for our valued customers.”
