The site manager at Bellway’s Heatherley Wood development at Alderley Park near Alderley Edge has received the Manchester region’s first National House Building Council (NHBC) Seal of Excellence award.

Proving that the beautiful new build homes under construction by Bellway are some of the most exceptional in Cheshire, experienced site manager Karl Henshaw is one of only 12 site managers in the North West of England to receive the prestigious Seal of Excellence which builds upon the Pride in the Job award that he won last year.

Judging is a comprehensive and intensive process that covers all aspects of the build process including quality of workmanship, technical expertise, leadership and health and safety, and only a handful of site managers have what it takes to achieve the high standards that the NHBC inspectors are looking for.

Demonstrating consistent quality across all areas of build and day-to-day site management is key to achieving success, with Karl and his team subject to regular visits from the NHBC inspecting team over a 12 month period as part of the judging process.

Construction director at Bellway Manchester, Paul Wright, commented: “We are delighted that Karl and his team have been awarded with a Seal of Excellence at Heatherley Wood.  The award is of particular significance to us as it is the very first one for the Manchester division and recognises the incredible effort and commitment that the team is putting in to deliver a truly outstanding collection of luxurious homes on a very high profile site.  It is not an easy award to win and is only presented to site managers and their teams who can demonstrate continued quality and excellence over a sustained period.”

Karl added: “We are all thrilled to have received a Seal of Excellence.  Heatherley Wood is a bespoke development with its own house types, street scenes and specification.  As such, the homes that we are building are all different with their own individual technical considerations and complexities.  Working as a team, we are successfully going above and beyond with each individual plot to ensure we exceed industry standards and deliver a magnificent new build home for each of our purchasers.”

Heatherley Wood is a magnificent development of high quality four, five and six bedroom luxurious new build homes nestled among the idyllic natural surroundings of Alderley Park which is located close to the desirable Cheshire village of Alderley Edge.  The development is open by appointment only.
