NorDan, the leading supplier of high performance environmentally-friendly timber windows and doors, has helped a developer customer pick up a regional award in the National House-Building Councils (NHBC) annual Pride in the Job awards.
The award went to John Gray, the site manager of Icon, a Crest Nicholson project in Street, Somerset, to which NorDan supplied timber framed windows, pairs of doors and timber sliding patio doors. Icon is a mixed development of houses, apartments and some social housing, rated Excellent under EcoHomes, and NorDans energy-efficient products from sustainably-sourced timber also contributed to achieving this standard.
NorDan worked closely with John Gray to ensure trouble-free delivery of windows and doors as and when they were required. This level of partnership supports the project by avoiding holding stock on site, while offering flexibility so that any changes to requirements can easily be accommodated.
NHBC set up its 'Pride in the Job' competition in 1980 to seek out the UK's best site managers and reward them for creating quality, beautifully finished new homes. The drive for quality is at the heart of the prestigious awards, which focus on the day-to-day operation of the building site and the work of the site manager.
Dareth Daley, Sales and Marketing Director at NorDan, comments: Our team is extremely pleased to have contributed to the success of our developer partner Crest Nicholson. The work that the NHBC does to raise standards in the housing construction industry is recognised nationwide and to have a project to which we have contributed win an award is an excellent endorsement of NorDans ability to work closely with our customers.
The awards acknowledge not just excellence in materials but also the contribution to performance of individual site managers and we regard these support services to be an equally important part of our total offering, he continues.
