A Coventry site manager has received national acclaim from the country’s largest construction safety group.

Bob Hodgkiss, who works for Deeley Construction, has been named ‘Site Manager of the Year’ for the Midlands at the annual British Safety Group (BSG) Awards.

He joined the business in 2013 and is currently site manager at the company’s Lillington Church development in Leamington.

The development will feature a brand new, state-of-the-art place of worship as well as 25 shared ownership homes, including six apartments, 12 two-bedroom houses and seven three-bedroom houses.

The work on the scheme is being carried out in partnership with Lillington Free Church and Orbit.

“It was a fantastic evening, celebrating the work of health and safety professionals across construction and it was great to be a part of it.”

Bob has also worked on other landmark developments for Deeley Construction, including the Stagecoach Depot and Engineering Hub, and Union Park, both in Leamington.

“This is a highly regarded award from the BSG and is testament to the hard work that Bob puts in day in, day out to ensure health and safety standards are raised on site.”
