Sunderland Site Manager wins major industry award

  • 24th September 2021

We had a fantastic day on Friday at the 2021 NHBC awards watching Michael Fucile, Site Manager at our Meadow View development in Houghton-le-Spring, receive his prestigious National House Building Council’s (NHBC) Pride in the Job award.

Michael Fucile received the award for excellence in site management at Meadow View, our 5* rated development comprising of two, three and four bedroom homes in Sunderland.

This is the first time Michael, who has worked for Gentoo Homes for over thirty years, has won the award and he is one of only 450 Site Managers across the country to be recognised from a field of more than 10,000.

He was promoted to Site Manager in 2017 after working and training as an Assistant Site Manager and has worked on various developments across the region.

The Pride in the Job is the most highly regarded competition in the housebuilding industry and recognises Site Managers who have achieved the highest of standards. Winning the award means Michael has been recognised for his technical expertise, health and safety, consistency, and attention to detail across Meadow View.

Speaking of his award, Michael said: “I’m honoured to have won this award and received recognition for the work that’s taken place across this exciting development. This is a real team effort from everyone on site and we are enjoying working on this site and seeing its continuing success over the past eighteen months, and I’m delighted that this award will give our home buyers extra assurance in the high quality of their new homes.”

Anthony Douglas, Operations Director at Gentoo Homes, said: “Michael is an extremely experienced Site Manager and has done a brilliant job on site at Meadow View. At Gentoo Homes we’re determined to provide high quality homes and this award is a true testament to his dedication and passion for his role and we’re really proud of Michael for receiving this accolade.”

This is another major accolade for our business as we're also celebrating maintaining our 5* home builder rating for the second consecutive year.

Homes on the final phase of the Meadow View development are currently available to purchase, find out more about the development here.
