Centenary Quay

A Project Manager for award-winning housebuilder Crest Nicholson has won a national award for excellence for his work at the Centenary Quay development in Southampton. Leigh Phillips was named as one of the Pride in the Job Quality Award winning Site Managers for 2022 by the National House Building Council.


Now in its fifth decade, the Pride in the Job award is a highly regarded competition in the housebuilding industry and is the most prestigious accolade a site manager can achieve. From a field of more than 11,000, it seeks to recognise those who have achieved the very highest standards in housebuilding across the UK. Judging takes around 18 months to complete while each site manager is assessed across six key areas including consistency, attention to detail, and technical expertise.


Leigh Phillips commented: “It’s a real honour to be recognised for all the hard work my Site Managers Johann Junker & Dan Dalton put in alongside me and the rest of the CQ Site team & sub-contract supply chain to attain such excellent standards at Centenary Quay. The whole team has helped build this vibrant development reflecting Crest Nicholson’s commitment to building sustainable communities that will benefit both residents and the local area for generations to come.” 


Eileen Guihen, Sales and Marketing Director at Crest Nicholson South, comments: “This award is not only a testament to Leigh and his hard work, but the calibre of quality among Crest Nicholson developments. Our site managers are crucial to ensuring the delivery of high quality new homes for their customers, while homebuyers can rest assured that they are receiving the very highest standard.”


The Quality Award winners will go on to compete for the Seal of Excellence and Regional Awards in the autumn, with the national Supreme Award winners unveiled in January.


Centenary Quay comprises 1,620 homes and apartments, as well as a range of amenity spaces including a public riverside walkway and play space for children of a variety of ages to enjoy. The landmark regeneration of Woolston Waterside has breathed new life into a previously derelict area, transforming the former Itchen riverside shipyard of Southampton with a selection of new homes and local businesses.  Both Southampton city centre and West Quay are just a short drive away from the homes, with a thriving bar and restaurant scene as well as a selection of shopping destinations.
