Cardiff-based housing developer and regeneration specialist Lovell has appointed Kate Rees as regional director.
Kate – based at Lovell’s regional office in Gwaelod-y-Garth, Cardiff – has been promoted from her previous role as regional sales manager to lead the region’s team providing comprehensive new-build, regeneration and refurbishment services across South Wales and the South West.
“I’m very excited to be taking over at this time of considerable expansion for Lovell in South Wales and the South West,” says Kate. “Sales activity on our mixed tenure sites continues to be strong while our project pipeline includes some of the region’s most significant new-build schemes delivering much-needed new affordable and open market homes. We are also working with our partners on important large-scale housing maintenance programmes which are transforming homes for residents across the region.
“Our success is founded on our ability to offer clients the complete spectrum of services, from new-build and mixed tenure developments to housing regeneration programmes and planned maintenance expertise, with the emphasis always on providing the very highest levels of service delivery and customer satisfaction. “
Key schemes for Lovell in the region include the company’s appointment by the Tirion Group to transform a former paper mill site in Cardiff with 800 brand-new homes, creating a £100 million new urban village. Lovell is also working on the second phase of the 250-home, £28 million Loftus Garden Village development in Newport, for Seren Group. In housing refurbishment, Lovell continues to work on a £10.5 million framework contract with Vale of Glamorgan Council for internal and external refurbishment of homes and a £38.6 million refurbishment contract carrying out work at 15,000 Bristol City Council homes.
