BOURNE-based house builder and developer Larkfleet Group (www.larkfleetgroup.co.uk) has appointed Tim Green as a new construction manager.
Tim has worked for Larkfleet Group for two years and in his new appointment as construction manager has already started working on four sites across Lincolnshire, Stamford and Rutland.
The award winning Hawksmead development in Oakham and The Orchard site in Deeping St James, which are currently being built by Larkfleet Homes, are some of the sites that Tim will now oversee. Warburton Court in Grimsby which is currently being built by Larkfleet Group’s construction company FE Peacock is another site that Tim will manage.
In his new role, Tim will be involved from the initial tender to the successful completion of a project, encompassing the day to day management and overseeing health and safety aspects of each site. He will also take part in design consultations and meetings with clients on a regular basis.
In June, Tim will join a team of four cyclists from Larkfleet Group as they cycle the 1,000 mile marathon from Lands End to John O’Groats. The team aims to raise over £10,000 for the Willow Foundation, a charity which organises special days for seriously ill 16-40 year olds.
The idea to attempt Britain’s greatest long distance cycling challenge came to Tim as a result of a birthday gift from his friends: “Sarah, my wife, knew I wanted a new bike for my 30th birthday,” he said. “It was a total surprise when I discovered all my friends had clubbed together and bought me one.
“To acknowledge their very special gesture, I decided there and then that the Lands End to John O’Groats challenge was one I had to attempt.”
Larkfleet Group managing director, Karl Hick commented: “I am delighted to appoint Tim as construction manager as over the past two years he has made a really positive impact on our team. I am sure in his new role Tim’s strong work ethic will be an asset to the colleagues he is working with. His planned charity bike ride is a great opportunity to raise money for a fantastic cause. I wish him and the team every success.”
Tim commented on his appointment: “I am delighted to now be working as construction manager and look forward to the varied work the role involves. My work ethic is to ‘always give more than is expected’.”
