Recognising site managers who go above and beyond

Site managers play a pivotal role in the success of any development and quite often it’s the professional relationship between them and our surveyors that helps to make a site a success. Through our partnership with Local Authority Building Control (LABC), our LABC Warranty Site Manager Award is a special category featured at the LABC Building Excellence Awards.

What you need to know about The Site Manager Awards

The nomination process

Stage 1: LABC Warranty Risk Management Surveyors put forward site managers for this award and each entry is verified by Regional Managers.

Stage 2: The best site managers are chosen as regional winners and presented with a Site Manager Award. Each regional winner qualifies for the national Site Manager Award.

Stage 3: Out of all the regional winners, the National Site Manager of the Year award winner is chosen and announced at the LABC Building Excellence Awards Grand Finals.

How to get nominated

LABC Warranty Risk Management Surveyors are responsible for nominating site managers for this award, so you don’t have to do anything.

For a site manager to be considered for nomination, they must meet the following criteria:

  • Must have a minimum of 3 units on site
  • Sites must have at least one unit past the second fix stage at the time of judging
  • Where there are one or more site managers responsible for a development, both can be considered for nomination
  • A site manager who has won in two consecutive years will not be eligible for a nomination the following year.


Nominations put forward by LABC Warranty surveyors are verified by Regional Managers and only the best performing site managers receive the LABC Warranty Site Manager Award.

How is a site manager scored?

During the warranty site inspection visits, LABC Warranty Risk Management Surveyors score each site manager against the same set of criteria relating to the quality of build and on-site management functions, including:

  • site administration
  • quality of workmanship at different key stages
  • health and safety and welfare facilities storage and protection of materials
  • waste control
  • protection of work in progress
  • site tidiness
  • site manager's technical, organisational and leadership skills


Not only are we looking for a high standard of workmanship on site with excellent problem-solving and decision-making skills, supported with very good knowledge of building methods and regulations, but as well, site managers who are great communicators with good organisational skills that can motivate their teams.
