The Site Manager Awards are approaching fast where the LABC Warranty National Site Manager of the Year is crowned. Each of the finalists have already won the Regional Site Manager Award and are now in the running for the National Site Manager title.
Through our partnership with LABC, this prestigious award is presented at the LABC Building Excellence Awards Grand Finals, which takes place on Friday 9th November at the Westminster Park Plaza Hotel, London. It is shaping up to be a brilliant night, with comedian and impressionist Jon Culshaw as host for the evening.
We reward site managers for their exceptional contribution to construction. Demonstrating exceptional site management and workmanship. This highly acclaimed accolade positions site managers as being the best of the best in the industry.
Mike Swatton, LABC Warranty Business Development Director, is one of the judges for the award and said;
“Again this year it was a pleasure to judge and see some of the finest quality our industry can produce, managed by the very best site managers.
Managing developments to the highest possible standard requires a unique skillset that can lead, motivate, organise and not accept second best.
We are proud to be associated with our winning finalists and their companies who are exemplars in what they do.”
