Prestigious quality award recognises project manager’s success

Fri 14th Dec 2018

Ardmore’s clients can be assured of the quality of its projects following the announcement of project manager Chandra Kancham as a winner of a prestigious Seal of Excellence award at the annual Pride in the Job Awards organised by the NHBC (National House-Building Council). Seal of Excellence Awards are presented to the top site managers across the country and are selected from the NHBC Quality Award winners.

Award winning managers display the utmost care, professionalism and attention to detail in their work, and Chandra beat off intense competition to bag the accolade – with only 130 award winners from over 13,000 UK site managers. The judges score managers on 37 activities including consistency of high standards, leadership, technical expertise through to standard of workmanship and the ability to skilfully interpret drawings and specifications.

Chandra’s award comes in recognition of his role in managing Ardmore’s Stratford Halo scheme in Newham to an extremely high standard and in building quality new homes for Genesis Housing Association.

Chandra, talking about his win, said:

“It’s fantastic to win this award, which recognises the excellent work being done by Ardmore at the Stratford Halo. To be recognised as one of 450 Quality Award winners is great, but to also be awarded a Seal of Excellence is a real honour.”

Commenting on Chandra’s achievement, Ardmore director James Byrne said:

“This is an outstanding achievement for Chandra and everyone at Ardmore is delighted for him. It’s great to see our teams recognised for the efforts that they bring to our award winning projects.”

Isabel Hudson, NHBC Executive Chairman, said: “A Pride in the Job Award marks recipients out as top performers, showing their true diligence and commitment to producing the best quality homes possible. By recognising exceptional site managers, NHBC promotes best practice in house building, bettering the construction quality of new homes year on year for homeowners and their families.
