David Wilson Homes East Midlands (DWHEM) has recruited a new contract manager as it seeks to cope with the market growth brought on by Help to Buy.
It is expected Peter Ward will be the first of many appointments, according to the Leicester Mercury.
DWHEM said it would deliver 188 homes and maintain 376 jobs because of the positive impact of the government’s Help to Buy scheme on the housing market.
Mr Ward said: “I have arrived at a particularly important time for the industry as the housing market begins to pick up again. I’m really enjoying leading such a successful team to ensure that we meet rising demand.”
John Reddington, managing director for DWHEM, commented the new starter will bring an extensive amount of knowledge and his 32 years of experience will help all 188 homes to be built on time.
Mr Reddington added construction volumes had been boosted by the Help to Buy scheme and DWHEM’s ability to make the most of this depends on its workforce.
