St. Modwen, the UK’s leading regeneration specialist, has appointed David Dodge as Senior Residential Development Surveyor, to develop and grow its residential business across the Midlands.
David will work on a number of residential-led regeneration schemes including those at Long Marston in Stratford-upon-Avon, parts of the Pirelli factory site just outside Burton-upon-Trent and the former Castleworks, Stafford as well as a number of strategic land releases.
In addition David will help to manage St. Modwen’s joint venture with house builder Persimmon Homes.
Previously David has overseen a number of high profile, mixed use developments across the country as regional director at regeneration and house building companies Morston Assets, Gleeson, Westbury Homes and Wimpey Homes.
David, who will be based at St. Modwen’s headquarters in Quinton, Birmingham, said: “I am delighted to join St. Modwen to be part of the respected and dynamic team that is highly skilled in all areas of regeneration.
“I look forward to integrating my skills and experience into the new role. My specialism is delivering vibrant and sustainable, residential-led communities where people can live, work, shop and socialise – in turn generating economic, environmental and social benefits.”
John Dodds, Midlands Regional Director added: “We are pleased to have David onboard. His vast experience in residential led schemes will help St. Modwen take advantage of the improving residential market place and further grow our successful residential portfolio.”
Under the joint venture with Persimmon, 2,000 homes are set to be built on seven St. Modwen owned sites across the UK.
In 2011 St. Modwen also launched its new residential arm, St. Modwen Homes. The fast growing house building brand specialises in delivering high quality homes and apartments and contemporary mixed use developments on brownfield land across the country.
In the financial year to date, St. Modwen has achieved 178 house sale completions (St. Modwen Homes – 111 and Persimmon joint venture – 67) and currently has a further 128 properties reserved or under contract (St. Modwen Homes – 72 and Persimmon joint venture – 56).
