Ms Wilson who is MP for Ayr, Carrick and Cumnock paid Stuart a visit after hearing of his recent success at the prestigious NHBC Pride in the Job Supreme Awards. The renowned site manager was named the number two ranking site manager in the UK, after having scooped the Regional Award for Scotland in the Medium Housebuilder category in October.

Since joining Mactaggart & Mickel Homes as an apprentice joiner more than 20 years ago, Stuart has worked his way up through the ranks to site manager, racking up an impressive 26 awards on the way. 

During Ms Wilson’s visit to Greenan Views, Stuart provided her with a guided tour of the live site and showhomes, accompanied by other members of the Mactaggart & Mickel Homes team.

Corri Wilson MP commented: “I’ve been delighted to have the opportunity to see round the site here at Greenan Views. It is clear Stuart and his team have put in a lot of hard work to provide new homes for such a wide range of people.

“Developments like this are crucial if we are to attract new people and businesses to the area, and to provide affordable homes for our young people and their families.”

Mactaggart & Mickel Homes’ Greenan Views site is one of the biggest developments Stuart has worked on during his many years with the company. The development features 97 properties, ranging from two-bedroom terraced houses through to five-bedroom detached villas. Stuart has also overseen the delivery of brand new house styles recently launched as part of the contemporary ‘Design Collection’ portfolio.

Despite his ongoing recognition Stuart is a big believer in the power of team work and credits his success to the dedication and hard work demonstrated by his entire team:

“It’s great to be recognised for your hard work but everyone in the industry knows that you can’t have a successful development without the support and commitment of a good team like I have at Greenan Views.

“It was a real honour to welcome Corri Wilson MP to the site today and let her see first-hand the work currently being carried out to provide quality homes in the area.”
