Miller Homes’ Edinburgh project manager wins prestigious award Jim Martin receives industry accolade for 13th year

Posted: 28th June 2022

Edgelaw project Manager Jim Martin, from Miller Homes’ Edinburgh development is elated to win the Excellence in On-site Management Quality Award in this year’s NHBC Pride in the Job Awards which were announced last week (17 June).
The annual awards recognise the commitment and dedication of development site managers in attaining consistently high standards in the building of new homes. They are among the most prestigious awards for site managers in the housebuilding industry, where more than 11,000 candidates from across the UK are assessed across six key areas for several months against the NHBC’s stringent standards.

The team at Miller Homes’ Edgelaw development in Edinburgh demonstrated the best practice in the field, and Site Manager Jim was delighted to be recognised for the Pride in the Job Award among the other talented winners from across the country.

Jim (61), has more than 40 years’ experience in the construction industry and has worked for Miller Homes for 16 years. This is his 13th Pride in the Job award showing his on-going dedication to the job.

Jim Martin, Site Manager at Miller Homes’ Edgelaw development, said: “I am honoured, once again, to have been selected for the Quality Award at this year’s NHBC Pride in the Job Awards. I’ve been building homes for more than four decades and it’s so rewarding to know that we are helping build a future for many families. I’ve got a wonderful team at Edgelaw who all work extremely hard to deliver the highest quality of product and service for our buyers. I’d like to say a special thanks to my colleagues on site and the wider Miller Homes team, our excellent suppliers and of course the lovely residents at Edgelaw.”

Neil Gaffney, Regional Operations Director for Miller Homes Scotland East commented: “It is an incredible achievement for Jim to have now won a Quality Award 13 times. Jim is a talented project Manager, who is dedicated to his role and is extremely deserving of this award. We would like to extend our warmest congratulations to Jim from everyone at Miller Homes. Well done!”

Following on from the Quality Awards are the NHBC’s Seal of Excellence and Regional Awards, which will be announced later in the year.

For buyers interested in the Edgelaw development, there are a selection of three, four and five-bedroom homes available. Interested buyers can find out more by visiting
