Proudly scooping his first NHBC award, David Wilson Homes site manager Richard Cadman is “absolutely elated” with his success, which he puts down to having the right team and being able to motivate them to win.
“I set my heart on winning the award and it certainly wasn’t easy – the team are also really pleased and winning the award has meant a lot to them too. In today’s competitive housing market you need something to make you stand out from the crowd and this award certainly helps” he added. He is particularly appreciative of the help of his contracts manager Wayne Morris, without whose guidance he says he could not have won the award.
Richard, who started his career as a joiner, has been in the building trade since leaving school many years ago and comes from a family who has been involved in the construction industry, including his father who was a construction director when Richard first started work. His fiancée also works for David Wilson Homes a sales negotiator.
“I was lucky that I could take advantage of the chances I got in my career and worked hard and made the best of them” said Richard.
