Bob takes the helm at Poole development

Bob Plowman has been appointed as site manager at Barratt Homes’ new development in Hamworthy, Poole, where work is underway to create a community of 104 new homes.

He will be responsible for overseeing construction at Lakeside Walk, liaising with construction workers, subcontractors and suppliers. With more than 35 years’ building experience in the housing industry, Bob will play a key role in mentoring local apprentices working on this latest new community.

He said: “I’m delighted to be working on these superb new home designs here in Poole. I take great pleasure in making sure those who buy the houses and apartments we build are 100 percent happy with their purchase.

“Listening carefully to their needs and ensuring that everything is just right for them is hugely important. I have a great team here at Lakeside Walk, and overseeing a safe site that is a great place in which to work is also a key part of my role.

“Progress is good and we’re all looking forward to opening the doors to what will be an impressive new community at Lakeside Walk in Spring 2019.”

Barratt Homes managing director Jon Green said: “We are delighted to have Bob at the helm of our new development and know he will do a stellar job. Site managers such as Bob play a pivotal role in delivering high-quality new homes and it is this quality which should inspire confidence in our buyers.”

Lakeside Walk is a brand-new collection of two, three and four bedroom homes within this small and quiet inner suburb of Poole. It is an ideal location for young families and retirees alike. Close to local schools and shops, it is perfect for those who love the community lifestyle and living by the coast.
