TWO West Fife builders have been recognised in industry awards.

Peter Lawrie and Barrie Mitchell, who both work as site managers for Barratt Homes East Scotland, picked up Pride in the Job accolades from the National House Building Council (NHBC).

Known as the 'Oscars of the housebuilding industry', the Pride in the Job Quality awards recognise the best-run building sites in the country and are the highest accolade a site manager can achieve.

Peter, from Dunfermline, was recognised for his role as project manager at The Heathers in Dunfermline while Barrie Mitchell, from Inverkeithing, received the honour for his work at Barratt’s Heritage Grange development in the south of Edinburgh.

The award winners are chosen after continuous site inspections by the NHBC of all homes to select the highest-quality and best-organised housing developments.

In addition to spot checks from the NHBC, site managers are judged on their consistency, attention to detail, leadership, technical expertise and health and safety, with just 450 individual winners being chosen from more than 16,000 entrants.

Alison Condie, managing director for Barratt East Scotland, said: "Each of them go the extra mile on site ensuring Barratt house buyers receive a superior home and service. These awards recognise only the very best new homes and well-run sites. They are something that customers can look out for as a quality mark knowing their home has been built to the highest standard possible."
