Daniel Blakley, Senior Site Manager for McCarthy Stone’s latest Queens View Retirement Living development on 64 Ack Lane East, is celebrating after picking up a coveted Pride in the Job Quality Award from the National House Builders’ Council (NHBC).

This marks the second time Daniel has been recognised by the NHBC, after previously winning a Quality Award for his work at McCarthy Stone’s Brideoake Court development, which is situated in Standish. Daniel’s latest achievement also closely follows his Seal of Excellence Award win late last year, which is the next stage of the judging process where Pride in the Job winners are under the spotlight once again.

The Pride in the Job Quality Award recognises his leadership and commitment to quality in all aspects of the work currently underway at Queens View Retirement Living development, offering low maintenance and independent living apartments designed exclusively for people aged 60 and over.

Running for 43 years, the Pride in the Job accolade recognises Site Managers across the country who are at the top of their profession and are creating homes of an outstanding high standard. Judging for the awards is rigorous, and each site manager is assessed across six key areas: consistency, attention to detail, leadership, interpretation of drawings and specifications, technical expertise and health and safety. This year, thousands of site inspections and meticulous scoring and verifications have taken place to decide the winning site managers.

A total of 443 winners have been selected from more than 15,000 entrants, meaning Daniel is amongst the top 3% to receive the award in recognition of his leadership and commitment to quality in all aspects of the work currently underway at Queens View. Daniel will now go on to compete for the NHBC Seal of Excellence once again this autumn.

Commenting on his award success, Daniel, who has been with McCarthy Stone for eight years, said: “At McCarthy Stone, every aspect of our work is considered and conducted thoroughly. I am deeply proud of the entire site team working here at Queens View, as each and every one has had a part to play in securing this award, and they have all been instrumental in improving the quality and detail of the development.

“This ethos and a lot of hard work has helped us consistently deliver developments, like this one in Bramhall, to the highest standard.”

John Tonkiss, McCarthy Stone CEO said: ‘’All of our Site Managers work incredibly hard to deliver the very highest quality developments with outstanding professionalism. I am thrilled that Daniel’s ongoing dedication has been recognised by such a prestigious award. Congratulations, it’s a well-deserved achievement.”

NHBC’s CEO Steve Wood added: Pride in the Job is firmly at the heart of NHBC’s mission to raise standards in the housing industry. It is important we recognise the vital role Site Managers play in ensuring new homes are delivered on time, safely, in addition to meeting construction quality standards. We’d like to say a huge congratulations to Daniel for his achievement.”


Once complete, Queens View will provide everything the over 60s could want for an enjoyable and independent retirement. Homeowners will feel safe and secure with a House Manager on hand to take care of the day-to-day running of the development, while a 24-hour emergency call system will provide added peace-of-mind. There will also be a large communal lounge and gardens, perfect for getting to know your new neighbours.

Prices at Queens View currently start from £389,950. Flexible purchase options are also available to make moving even easier.

More than nine out of 10 customers would recommend McCarthy Stone to a friend, ensuring it has received the full Five Star award for customer satisfaction from the Home Builders Federation. McCarthy Stone is the only UK housebuilder of any size or type to achieve this rating every year we have taken part in the survey.
