Hayfield Views Site Manager scoops a coveted NHBC Pride in the Job Award two years running

Hayfield Views in the Oxfordshire village of Great Bourton has won yet another major award. Site Manager Neil Hartnett has ‘done the double’ by winning a coveted NHBC Pride in the Job Award for the second year running.


Pride in the Job is the most highly regarded competition in the housebuilding industry. The award scheme celebrates Site Managers who demonstrate excellence and commitment to producing homes of outstanding quality. It is a badge of success for the Site Manager, their team and associated trades, as well providing a reputational boost for the housebuilder. It rewards the contribution and dedication to pursuing excellence in delivering high-quality homes for homeowners in the UK. More than 250 judges apply a robust and meticulous judging process to around 16,000 residential developments across the UK.

Kelly Sharman, Sales and Marketing Director for Hayfield said: “We are so proud of Neil for bringing home this award for the second year running. Pride in the Job recognises Site Managers who achieve the highest standards in construction and that is exactly what he and his team have delivered at Hayfield Views.

“Neil’s commitment, leadership, experience, attention to detail and his overwhelming pride in the job are what makes him such an excellent Site Manager. The outstanding build quality of Hayfield Views has ensured it seamlessly blends into the traditional village of Great Bourton.”

As Hayfield Views approaches the build complete stage, only two homes remain for sale. The development is located off Main Street on the edge of the peaceful Oxfordshire village and has proven popular with commuters, as Banbury Train Station can be reached by car in under 10 minutes. Fast train services take passengers to London in under an hour and to Oxford in under 20 minutes.


In May, Hayfield also scooped Best Family Home Under £750,000 at the Evening Standard New Homes Awards 2019 for the Bourton home at Hayfield Views. The judges remarked that they were genuinely blown away by the build quality, attention to detail and the array of features that Hayfield includes as standard, such as heritage bronze door furniture, underfloor heating, Roca/Laufen bathroom suites, Farrow & Ball paint, warming drawers and curved cabinets in the bespoke kitchens.


Hayfield was also recognised at the 2018 WhatHouse? Awards as one of the UK’s Best Small Housebuilders.  


Hayfield specialises in building luxury family houses and has six live sites located in prime locations in Oxfordshire, Warwickshire and Worcestershire. Approximately 200 executive homes will be delivered by the firm over the next 12 months.
