A housing development near Glasgow has won a top award.

Jackton Hall, a semi-rural array of homes near East Kilbride, has been recognised with a Pride in the Job Quality Award which has been given to site manager Michael Hastings.

Deemed the 'Oscars' of the housebuilding industry, the accolade recognised Michael as one of the best site managers in the country. 

Glasgow Times:

He is one of 19 winners from Barratt Developments Scotland, which includes Barratt Homes and David Wilson Homes.

Lisa Cameron, who is the MP for East Kilbride, Strathaven and Lesmahagow, recently visited the site to congratulate Michael.

She said: “I was delighted to visit the Barratt site to meet with Michael and the team after writing him a letter of congratulations from the House of Commons.

"Michael and Barratt are producing high-quality workmanship across our constituency and I was so pleased to thank them in person and to also see the affordable homes that will make such a difference to local families.”

Glasgow Times:

Jackton Hall is popular with families with easy access to a range of schools, whilst couples and professionals will enjoy the range of local shops and eateries on offer nearby.

Surrounded by open green space, the development is also a great location for walking and outdoor exercise.

David Scott, managing director of Barratt and David Wilson Homes West Scotland, said: “We were thrilled to welcome Lisa Cameron MP to Jackton Hall and to demonstrate the quality which we are building across all tenures in her constituency.

“The Pride in the Job awards acknowledge the work we’re doing to showcase our commitment to building the highest standard of homes in East Kilbride and across Scotland, with our elite site manager Michael Hastings being among those demonstrating our award-winning customer care.”
