Bob the builder is honoured for his work

DEDICATED Bob Plowman has been honoured for his dedication to building good-quality homes in the first round of the NHBC Pride in the Job Awards.

Monday, 25th July 2016, 5:55 am

Bob, from Bishop’s Waltham, works for McCarthy & Stone Retirement Lifestyles Southern. He won the award for his management of the Walmsley Place site in Bishop’s Waltham, joining almost 450 other award winners from across the UK.

Now in its 36th year, Pride in the Job celebrates the exceptional contribution site managers make.

As well as undergoing spot checks on the day-to-day running of the sites, each manager is assessed across 37 areas of management, including technical knowledge, consistency in the build process and the quality controls.
