NHBC Awards North East & Yorkshire

Dave’s “on top of the world”

NHBC Reflexions“On top of the world,” describes the elation of site manager Dave Sharman, scooping his first Pride in the Job Quality award for his work at Taylor Wimpey’s Reflection development in Wakefield.

“We worked really well on such a tight canalside site and the award was really welcomed by all the team,” he said, adding: “I believe that you’re only as good as the team around you and I have a good team, so I’m really happy. In addition, this development was my first as site manager, which makes the success even better.”

He says that he has also welcomed the advice and backing of his production manager Andrew Clarke, which he says has been a great help. “I am hoping that we can go forward from this award and do the same again,” said Dave, who has received a letter of congratulation signed by his MD.

Starting as a joiner with a local company, Dave went self-employed before joining Taylor Woodrow in 2004 as a foreman joiner, eventually being promoted to assistant site manager and more recently, site manager.NHBC Reflexions

Reflection is a stunning range of just twenty four luxury three and four bedroom townhouses, right in the centre of Wakefield’s exciting waterfront regeneration plan and is ideal for the first time buyer, growing families or those looking to downsize. The development was constructed on a fast track programme in just 12 months and is now complete and fully occupied.

This unique development is close to a host of leisure facilities and local amenities including a multiplex cinema, a wide range of shops and a vibrant nightlife. The development also benefits from superb road links to Leeds, Castleford and Barnsley.

Wakefield centre is currently undergoing a refreshing change under the Wakefield Regeneration project, which aims is to create a better, brighter and stronger district, making Wakefield the place to live. Taylor Wimpey develops land into places that people want to call home by creating new and sustainable communities and enhancing local and existing neighbourhoods. “We work hard to provide our customers with a stress-free, high quality service whilst focusing on design and build quality. We create places where people aspire to live, work and play.”
