Aaron Parradine works at EJ Taylor and Sons in Chelmsford, and the firm is the principal contractor of Wickford Development Company.

Through the 2021 NHBC Pride in the Job awards for the South East category, Aaron won a Quality Award, Seal of Excellence, and then a Regional Award.

He has subsequently been chosen as a Supreme Award winner, as the best in the small builder category for sites with one to 50 new homes.

Aaron was presented with the award in front of an audience of sector peers at a London ceremony.

The competition also chose a Supreme Award winner for the categories covering medium builder, multi-storey builder, and large builder, with runners-up for each of the four categories.

The original pool was from around 10,000 UK site managers.
