NHBC Awards

Award is Sean’s “stepping stone” to higher things

Young Site Manager Sean O’Regan has won his first NHBC award for the Barratt Manchester development in Hattersley, Cheshire.

The site around Hare Hill Road is a busy development which is still in progress, comprising one hundred and seventy-three units, with a hundred and twenty-three left to build.  Sean has had to manage the site well in order to hit tight targets whilst still maintaining a high level of quality and presentability. He is currently pushing the team to make the next fifty homes wind and watertight by mid August.

Sean described it as “a great achievement” to have kept hitting the tough targets on schedule. He particularly praised the work of the ground workers and footpath contractors for forming an attractive landscape which was clearly compliant with health and safety regulations.

He is looking forward to celebrating with the team, and said that those higher up the company are extremely pleased with his success. “The Construction Director is made up for me,” he commented.

The homes being built on the site are a range of one and two-bedroom apartments and two- to four- bedroom family homes. They are modern, spacious and very affordable, whilst the NHBC award demonstrates that the quality has not been compromised. The first phase of twenty-five homes has been released, and four are already sold.

Sean joined Barratt Manchester as an apprentice joiner as soon as he left school and has been working his way up since then, working as a self-employed joiner before being promoted to Assistant Site Manager. For the last four years he has been a Site Manager, and aims to solidify his reputation by winning more awards and building the best quality developments that he can.

“It would be great to keep winning awards,” he told us, “and the next step up from here would be to win an NHBC Seal of Excellence. I’ve been with Barratt Homes for fourteen years now so I’ve just got to keep building, keep progressing, and work my way up from here. I’m still only 29 so I’ve got plenty of time ahead of me.”
