Scottish housing development site manager retains top award

A site manager at a new housing development in Stirlingshire has won an award for his continued focus on health and safety during the project.

Garry Izatt, who works for house-builders Stewart Milne Homes, received the honour at the National House-Building Council (NHBC) Awards after being named the winner of the Best Site in the North category.

The awards reward home-builders who keep health and safety at the top of their agenda, in spite of the difficulties of the recession. Gary was honoured for the second successive year for his role in safeguarding health and safety on site at the Wallace Gardens development in Stirling.

Garry revealed that teamwork was the key to the success of the project, he said: “This is the second time in as many years that Wallace Gardens has been recognised within the NHBC Best Site category. If it wasn’t for the impressive level of teamwork across the site, this award would not have been possible. Cooperation, especially between the Stewart Milne Homes team and our contractors, is the key to ensuring every detail of the site meets company standards and is achieved to the best quality possible.”

Another of the company’s site managers, David Mowbury, was commended in the Best Site Multi-Storey category for a private-housing project in Ravelstone, Edinburgh.

Commenting on the successes, Stewart Milne Group managing director, John Slater, said: “These awards are a real testament to the highly skilled and dedicated teams across the Group, which continue to deliver the quality and excellence the Stewart Milne brand is built on. I would like to take this opportunity to thank both Garry and David for their ongoing commitment and express my congratulations on their wonderful achievements.”
