Ipswich site manager wins national Pride In The Job award

A Taylor Wimpey senior site manager from Ipswich is celebrating after winning a prestigious national house-building award.

Tim Chandler, senior site manager at Taylor Wimpey’s Purdis Grange development, beat off stiff competition from around 15,000 entries to be honoured with an NHBC (National House-Building Council) Pride in the Job Quality Award.

Pride in the Job Quality Awards are presented following a stringent judging process by NHBC inspectors who perform spot checks and continuous assessment of developments throughout the year.

The award recognises Tim’s dedication to building high-quality homes for new homebuyers and provides purchasers with the assurance that the development provides top-quality properties and excellent customer service.
