LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM -- (Marketwire) -- 01/11/13 -- TWO site managers working for David Wilson Homes East Midlands have been awarded the prestigious Seal of Excellence award in the National Housebuilding Council (NHBC) Pride in the Job Awards.
Gary Tebbatt and Liam Hathaway have both been awarded the prestigious accolade for the exemplary standards they set at each of their new homes developments; The Chestnuts in Syston and St James Views in Hathern, Loughborough.
The site managers had already beaten 13,000 site managers to win one of the competition's 400 Quality awards and have now gone on to be amongst just 130 site managers in the country to receive the Seal of Excellence title.
Darren Langton, Construction Director at David Wilson Homes East Midlands, comments "We are extremely proud of our site managers for leading their teams to success in the annual NHBC awards.
"This confirms that we are building some of the highest quality homes not just in the East Midlands, but throughout the UK too."
Gary Tebbatt is no stranger to the Pride in the Job competition judges as this is the seventh consecutive year that he has been commended. He comments "The key to a successful site is having a good team around you and I'm very fortunate here at The Chestnuts to have some hard working lads.
"Even though this is my fourth Seal of Excellence for The Chestnuts, I'm still overjoyed to have won. David Wilson Homes' customers have high expectations and it is my job to lead my team to ensure that these high standards are not only met, but exceeded, - and we'll keep striving forward to ensure even more success for the future."
Liam Hathaway who has worked for David Wilson East Midlands for 17 years, picked up his award for his work at St James View in Hathern. This year saw him pick up his first Quality Award and his first Seal of Excellence. He comments "It's a fantastic feeling knowing that you're amongst the top 130 site managers in the country and I'm absolutely delighted to have won my first Seal of Excellence.
"As a site manager you need to be organised but I couldn't have done it without great colleagues around me so this award is for them as much as it is for me and it's an absolute honour to receive it."
The Pride in the Job awards are the most coveted in the industry. Now in its 31st year, it is the only national competition that focuses on the site manager's role in producing high quality new homes. Judging takes place all year round and scores are given across 38 different areas of site management including technical knowledge, consistency in the build process, leadership and organisational skills.

What do a firewall and a fortress have in common? They are no longer strong enough to protect the valuables housed inside. Like the walls of an old fortress, the cracks in the firewall are allowing the bad guys to slip in - unannounced and unnoticed. By the time these thieves get in, the damage is already done and the network is already compromised. Intellectual property is easily slipped out the back door leaving no trace of forced entry. If we want to reign in on these cybercriminals, it's hig...

We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will w...

The term culture has had a polarizing effect among DevOps supporters. Some propose that culture change is critical for success with DevOps, but are remiss to define culture. Some talk about a DevOps culture but then reference activities that could lead to culture change and there are those that talk about culture change as a set of behaviors that need to be adopted by those in IT. There is no question that businesses successful in adopting a DevOps mindset have seen departmental culture change, ...

Explosive growth in connected devices. Enormous amounts of data for collection and analysis. Critical use of data for split-second decision making and actionable information.

WebRTC defines no default signaling protocol, causing fragmentation between WebRTC silos. SIP and XMPP provide possibilities, but come with considerable complexity and are not designed for use in a web environment. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Matthew Hodgson, technical co-founder of the Matrix.org, discussed how Matrix is a new non-profit Open Source Project that defines both a new HTTP-based standard for VoIP & IM signaling and provides reference implementations.

The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, a...
