The volume housebuilder said it was looking to deliver homes in Birmingham, Wolverhampton, Coventry and Staffordshire
Volume housebuilder Wainhomes has launched a new division focused on building hundreds of new homes across the West Midlands.
The company’s new operation is based at Blythe Valley Innovation Centre, in Solihull, and will be led by Andy Peters as managing director.
Mr Peters brings 16 years of experience leading the regional businesses of well-known housebuilders Barratt, Persimmon and Berkeley.
Wainhomes said it was targeting a steady expansion programme across the West Midlands, looking to deliver 500 homes per year by 2026, in Birmingham, Wolverhampton, Coventry and Staffordshire.
It is part of a strategic expansion by the Warrington-based outfit which means it is now also active in the North West, Severn Valley and South West.
Mr Peters said: We have been working incredibly hard during the recent months, setting the foundations for this exciting new part of the Wainhomes business and with residential land already acquired we expect to deliver our first completions in 2022.
We have the funding and appetite to explore more opportunities, particularly in market towns and suburbs and are actively working with a number of landowners in the region, Mr Peters said.
He said: My aim is for Wainhomes to be the employer of choice in housebuilding across the West Midlands and we have some exciting roles available now. It is refreshing to launch a region from a genuine blank canvas.
