A PROJECT manager has taken over the role of working on a Lymm development - with a very nice commute.

Cube Homes has appointed Andy Roberts to the role.

The award-winning developer is gearing up for a busy year ahead with the launch of four new developments and Andy will play a key role in growth of the business.

Andy, who has a quantity surveying degree from Salford University, has extensive experience in the property and construction industry having worked for construction management company Poole Dick, quantity surveyor Baker Hollingworth and residential property developer LPC Living.

He is currently overseeing the final stage of the build of homes at Hawthorn Grange in Star Lane in Lymm, which means he has an enviable commute as he lives less than a quarter of a mile away.

He said: “I had seen work progressing on the site when I was out walking and I thought it looked incredible, so it felt like fate when I heard that they were looking for a new project manager.

“It’s great to be joining Cube at such an important time in the company’s evolution and the whole Cube ethos of returning profit to Great Places was very appealing as it’s nice to be working with a company that is making a real difference to so many people’s lives.

“I was also very impressed that some of the projects they are working on include the restoration and preservation of historic buildings – it is rare that you get a chance to work on projects which blend the old and new.”

Along with Hawthorn Grange, Andy is responsible for Cube Homes’ latest development Shire Hill on the site of the former Glossop Workhouse in the Peak District and its new canal-side homes in Lock Keeper’s Court in Stone.

Other Cube Home developments under way include sites at Weaver’s Croft at Haven Lane in Oldham and Lime Grove in Woodley, Stockport with further developments planned for High Lane in Chorlton-cum-Hardy and Mossley in Tameside.

Andy is the latest new recruit for the company which recently appointed Jamie Chitticks as Apprentice Development Project Manager with the developer.

Cube Managing Director Christopher Heath said: “Andy is an incredibly experienced project manager and has a fantastic reputation in the industry. Not only will our developments and buyers benefit greatly from the wealth of his knowledge I am sure the rest of the team will too.”
