A Hugglescote builder has been recognised as one of the best in the UK.
Martyn Griffiths, 32, has been singled out by the National House Building Council (NHBC) for his work onsite.
Known as the 'Oscars of the housebuilding industry, the prestigious Pride in The Job Quality awards identify the finest Site Managers from around the country.
Martyn has earned the accolade for the high standards set at the Grange View development in Hugglescote.
Having worked for Barratt Homes for over seven years, this is his second consecutive Pride in the Job Quality award.
Martyn said: "It's brilliant to be recognised for a second successive year and this award feels even more special after the constraints we've faced over the past 12 months.
"An achievement like this is a credit to everyone's hard work onsite and we've been quite fortunate to keep working due to the excellent safety measures that have been in place.
"Grange View has progressed greatly over the past year and it's nice to see more customers moving in and providing positive feedback. It really feels like a community now.
"I'd like to thank Shane De-Hayes (Assistant Site Manager) and Rob Taylor (Contracts Manager) for their ongoing support."
Every Site Manager who is registered with the NHBC is automatically entered into the awards, with just 450 winners being selected from 11,000 entrants, showing how difficult they are to win.
Mark Cotes, Managing Director at Barratt Homes North Midlands, said: "These awards showcase only the best new homes and well-run sites. By winning so many awards it demonstrates that we are building some of the highest quality homes in the country.
"It also shows the long-term commitment we have to looking after our customers and making them happy. No other housebuilder can match our record at the NHBC Pride in the Job Quality awards."
Barratt Homes is currently taking appointment-only viewings at Grange View for buyers to visit.
