Published: 27 January 2022

Strengthening Ascent’s growth is the appointment of Peter Allsop, who has started as Head of Construction.

Widely experienced, Peter has joined after two decades in the housebuilding industry. During that time, he has worked in several senior roles for leading housebuilders, giving a well-rounded understanding and knowledge of the sector. He also boasts a strong portfolio of previous experience as Operations Director at Brickwork Direct Ltd and Contracts Manger at Gentoo Group Ltd.

Peter will be responsible for spearheading all construction sites at Ascent Homes developments, managing the build process, Health and Safety, and will work closely with the land and commercial teams on new sites.

My previous roles have equipped me with the essential skills to hit the ground running at Ascent Homes and I am looking forward to growing the company and developing the construction sites as we increase in size. Since the start of the New Year, the sales and the registered interest we have in future sites is phenomenal”.

Duncan Bowman, Development Director added:

“We are delighted to welcome Peter to the Ascent Homes Team. Peter has considerable experience in his field, and we could not have asked for a better candidate for such a challenging time for house building where demand is higher than ever.

We have exciting plans to develop a wide range of homes throughout Northumberland and Peter’s skills are a perfect match for our future plans”.
