Joining from Rider Levett Bucknall, Joe will be responsible for pre-planning and pre-construction development processes, as well as the management of Court Collaboration’s build programmes, overseeing quality, costs, delivery, and health and safety at every stage.
A former National League rugby player and keen golfer, Joe joins the specialist residential developer as a number of projects begin to move towards a start on site, and as a range of brand new opportunities come down the pipeline.
In recent months, and despite the Coronavirus pandemic, Court Collaboration has received planning consent for its 995-home Stone Yard scheme in Digbeth and its neighbouring 48-storey Build-to-Rent development in Deritend, with work also due to start on a mixed-use scheme in Leeds and ramp up at New Garden Square, where the developer is delivering 392 high-quality apartments as part of the wider Calthorpe Estate regeneration.
Alex Neale, Managing Director, said: “Court Collaboration continues to lead the way in the Build-to-Rent market and despite all the challenges we have faced, we’ve got multiple schemes getting off the ground in the coming months. Joe’s skills and experience means we can push on with these projects with even more tenacity, as well as having an additional expert working on our new developments at the planning stages. So, to Joe, a huge welcome to the family and for us, a fantastic coup as we build on our successes and continue to push forward despite such a difficult year for all.”
