Housebuilder expands its construction team with new appointment

Bloor Homes Midlands has bolstered its construction team with the appointment of a new contracts manager.

Pete Bowers, 36, has been promoted to the position after 11 years as a site manager with the company.

He becomes the third contracts manager for the Tamworth-based Midlands division, which is looking to almost double the number of new sites it has across the region.

Pete joined Bloor Homes 20 years ago as an apprentice joiner, before working his way up to the position of site manager.

He has won a number of industry awards for his work at Bloor developments, including Otters Bank in Leicester, Heritage Walk in Newbold Verdon and most recently at his last site, Fairfield Manor in Castle Donington.

In his new role, Pete will be overseeing construction progress at a number of sites and assisting the construction director in ensuring the region meets it build targets.

Pete, who lives with his wife in Sandiacre, Derbyshire, said: “Bloor Homes is a company that puts a big emphasis on encouraging its staff to progress, and right from the day I joined as a 16-year-old apprentice, I had ambitions of eventually become a site manager.

“Becoming a contracts manager was the next logical step for me, and I’m looking forward to using my 20 years of experience with the company to help the current team of site managers to increase the number of new homes we are building, whilst still maintaining the high standards which we pride ourselves on as a developer.

“Having been with Bloor all of my career, I am extremely passionate about the company’s emphasis on quality and it is this ethos that I want to instil in the new apprentices starting out on their own careers with us.”
