“In fact, it’s the second time this year that our Brierley Heath team has been awarded, having won Harron Team of the Year 2020/21, so it’s even better to have the NHBC also recognise what a brilliant team we have.

“I’m incredibly proud of all our developments and the hard work that goes into building every house to the highest quality, and would like to thank the whole Harron team as we know our successes would not be possible without the great team spirit we have here.”

NHBC chief executive Steve Wood said: “Pride in the Job has been pivotal in improving the quality of new homes for more than 40 years and winning sites have higher levels of homeowner satisfaction as these homes are among the very best in the country.

“Congratulations to all the 2021 Pride in the Job Quality Award winners – be proud of what you are building and the standards you are setting.”
