Living Space Housing has promoted Alex Jones to the position of Technical director, in recognition of the role he has been playing in the continued expansion of the business.
32-year-old Jones joined Living Space Housing 18 months ago from construction company Torsion Group, where he was a design manager.
Prior to that, he served as a design and build coordinator at Kier Living.
He has a BSc in computer aided design and construction from the University of Wolverhampton.
Jones is leading the technical management of all Living Space’s live and upcoming residential schemes.
His remit includes developing drawings at the pre-construction stage, appointing and managing consultants, and being responsible for the day to day running of live developments.
He is also skilled in remediating complex and challenging brownfield land, according to Living Space.
Commenting on Jones’s appointment, Steve Davies, managing director of Living Space Housing, said: “Alex Jones has been instrumental to Living Space’s growth, by progressing all of our up-and-coming schemes through the design and pre-contract phases.
“He then continues to play a pivotal role within the wider team once we break ground and develop out each site. We are thrilled to recognise his expertise and commitment to the business by promoting him to Technical director.”
Jones said: “I am really pleased that my work and contribution to the company has been recognised with this promotion.
“Living Space’s solid funding position is enabling a number of new sites to come on stream simultaneously and it will be exciting to be able to announce these to the market as soon as the deals have been confirmed.”
