A Spalding house builder is in contention for a top national construction award after impressing judges with his work on a town housing project.

Mark Jefferson is through to the next round of the annual Pride in the Job Awards run by the National House-Building Council (NHBC) to reward construction workers who show commitment to achieving high standards in house building.

The Taylor Wimpey East Midlands employee was recognised for his work on the Pilgrims Chase estate in Wygate Park after Mark was shortlisted from around 13,000 entrants from across the UK.

Mark is one of 450 Quality Awards winners through to the regional finals, with winners to be announced in the autumn who will then go through to the NHBC Gala Final in January 2014.

Richard Hartshorn, NHBC regional director, said: “Winning a Pride in the Job Quality Award is a major achievement for any site manager so Mark is at the top of the game.

“The homes our Quality Award winners have built are without doubt among the best in the UK and Mark can be truly proud of this accolade.”
