Midlands based property developers, Wavensmere Homes, continue to grow its team by welcoming an additional Technical Manager, Ben Marsden. This news follows its recent announcement that Ross Oates was appointed as the newly created Project Director. This expansion of employees for the company comes after the success of its 18.5-acre Nightingale Quarter development that’s located in Derby city centre, with more projects on the horizon.

Ben brings with him nearly 15 years of experience working within a professional environment, with roles in consultancy, residential development, national house building and main contracting. Most recently, Ben has been heading up the technical team on Berkeley St. Joseph’s Snow Hill Wharf scheme, in Birmingham, working on the post planning technical function. Prior to this, Ben has worked for Berkley South East London, Bouygues, Hackett & James and Persimmon Homes.  

As Technical Manager, Ben will be overseeing all aspects of projects to ensure the quality is of Wavensmere Homes standards, as well as making strategic decisions across the field. Ross says, “It is an exciting time to be joining the award-winning team at Wavensmere Homes. They are an ambitious, forward thinking company with a fantastic reputation for placemaking and providing quality homes. There are some exciting projects in the pipeline which I am looking forward to being a part of, using my experience to have a positive influence and help shape future developments.”

James Dickens, Managing Director at Wavensmere Homes, says; “The hiring of Ben Marsden is testament to the Wavensmere Homes enthusiasm for growth across the Midlands. His expert experience in residential development will assist the team in ensuring each project we deliver continues to exceed all industry standards. Wavensmere Homes has multiple new projects on the horizon that we look forward to announcing very soon. It’s an exciting time at the company and we look forward to Ben getting started alongside Ross.”

Established in 2015, Wavensmere Homes continues to go from strength-to strength specialising in challenging sites, place making and regeneration across the Midlands. Its on-going development, Nightingale Quarter, will create nearly 800 homes and is set to become one of the largest city centre regeneration projects in the UK. Most recently, the company has been awarded Urban and City Living Developer of the Year at the annual Insider’s Midlands Residential Property Awards 2021.
