Lovell has appointed Debra Borley as site manager overseeing a major homes refurbishment programme which the company is delivering for Vale of Glamorgan Council.
During her construction career, Debra has managed a number of important housing improvement projects for local authorities in South Wales. Senior roles have included working as a site manager for construction company Bouygues (UK) and as a site lead for maintenance specialist Wates Living Space.
She now leads the internal and external improvement works being carried out by Lovell at homes in Glamorgan for Vale of Glamorgan Council. The programme includes external wall insulation, other external work and has involved significant improvements to the Longmeadow Court sheltered housing scheme in Cowbridge.
In her new role, Debra draws on extensive experience in programming housing refurbishment work and of developing successful working relationships with residents, clients and subcontractor partners. She originally started her construction career with Lovell as a resident liaison officer on a long-term kitchen and bathroom replacement programme before moving into site management.
Kate Rees, Lovell regional managing director for South Wales and the South West, says: “Debra’s comprehensive experience and proven track record of managing large-scale housing refurbishment and regeneration programmes make her a very welcome addition to our team. I’m delighted that we have attracted someone with her professional expertise to return and work again for Lovell at a time of continuing expansion for our business in the region.”
