Living Space Housing prepares for expansion with Production Manager appointment
Living Space Housing has appointed Phil Morgan as its Production Manager. Phil is part of the affordable housing specialist’s senior management team, heading up the production function across its portfolio of sites.
Solihull-based Living Space is a development-led residential planning, design and construction services solution for Registered Providers, PRS Funds, the NHS, Universities and Defence Estates. Having launched to the market in 2019, it already has 322 residential plots under control across the Midlands region, representing a combined construction value in excess of £37million.
Phil Morgan has joined Living Space from Staffordshire-based Crest Nicholson Homes, where he held the position of Contracts Manager. Previous positions held include 14 years as Production Director at Miller Homes, Construction Director at Prowting Homes (Midlands) and Construction Director at Swan Hill Homes (South West).
Phil Morgan, Production Manager for Living Space Housing said: “Living Space has ambitious growth plans to quickly gear up to delivering 400 homes per annum. It’s really exciting to be on board at this early stage and be able to play a major role in the shaping of this well-funded business.
“I have over 40 years’ experience in the housebuilding and construction industry, working for both large and small companies. In this new role I will be heading up Living Space’s production function, responsible for delivering all new home completions.”
Living Space is delivering its first batch of affordable homes in Kidderminster, Telford and Cradley, which is on the outskirts of Malvern. Further schemes are coming online in Shropshire, Herefordshire, Worcestershire and Northamptonshire.
Steve Davies, Managing Director of Living Space Housing said: “This is a people-driven industry and in launching Living Space as a new business last year, we felt it was imperative to recruit a highly experienced senior team to add instant depth to our offering. Phil has held a number of high-profile senior roles and knows the industry inside-out. His contacts base is a great asset to the business.
“Phil and the wider team will be working to varying needs and specifications to deliver homes for rent, shared ownership, retirement living, as well as homes to be sold on the open market. We have 322 homes either under construction or in our immediate pipeline and are very excited about how quickly the company is growing.”
