The Persimmon Homes site manager won his first award in 2008 and has notched up one every year since, including this year for a £7.4m Kings Park West housing scheme involving the construction of 49 homes in West Heath, a suburb of Birmingham.

Wayne, who has been in the construction field since the age of 18, said: “I think the success of achieving the award is having a happy team, a team that you can trust and having the right tradespeople around you to get a quality job done, on time and on budget.

“We are delighted with the recognition that the NHBC inspectors have given us and I think they appreciated the quality and consistency of the workmanship of the project.

“It is a great accolade for the people on the job and obviously put smiles on their faces as they can now move forward in going on to other jobs knowing they have this award on their CV. It is a moment for us all to be proud.”

The scheme is being built on a 3.4 acre Brownfield development, land formerly owned by West Heath Hospital.

The ‘Kings Park West’ scheme will feature a mix of two, three and four bedroom traditional semi detached and detached houses, including an element of affordable housing to enable local people to continue to remain close to their roots, with three bedroom properties on the first release.

Persimmon is one of the UK’s leading house builders and builds around 16,700 homes a year on more than 500 sites nationwide, with headquarters in York.
