Russell Armer site manager collects national quality award

Posted on November 4, 2019 | News

Talented Russell Armer Homes site manager Ian Hunt was delighted to collect his Pride in the Job award at a special winners’ lunch held this month at the Hilton Manchester Deansgate hotel.

Ian, who has managed many developments for Russell Armer over the years, was selected for the prestigious award in recognition of his work on the high-quality restoration and redevelopment of Lesketh How, a stunning nineteenth-century home on Rydal Road in Ambleside.

The NHBC award acknowledges the exceptional contribution made by site managers in creating homes of outstanding quality – and competition is fierce. Happily, NHBC inspectors were suitably impressed with the high standards of site management during visits to the development, despite the many challenges that arise during a project of such significant local and historical importance.

Lesketh How has been beautifully transformed into six unique two-storey homes with new additions that seamlessly integrate with the original structure. It’s a remarkable development – and within just a few hundred metres of the centre of Ambleside.

Ian was thrilled to receive his award: ‘It was completely unexpected! We’re all really proud of Lesketh How and I feel that the award is a reflection not just of my commitment to achieving the best result but of the effort the whole team has put in to make it a success.’

Steve Wood, Chief Executive of NHBC commented: ‘Congratulations to our award-winning site managers. Competing against 16,000 of their peers, the winners have demonstrated excellent standards onsite and affirmed their commitment to producing homes of exceptional quality.’

Russell Armer is celebrating news of another industry award this month: the UK Property Award for Residential Development (Cumbria) for Oakfield Park on Kendal Road, Kirkby Lonsdale.
