Wigley Building and Development Expands To Support Growth

The construction arm of a leading commercial property company based in Coventry is building on a strong foundation year by extending its management team.

Wigley Building and Development has increased its number of senior staff, including site managers, quantity surveyors and project managers, to 12 within its first 12 months.

It was established in May 2017 from The Wigley Group’s merger with UK-wide main contractor Ciexbe Limited to strengthen its construction services.

The team, led by Charlie Brooks, construction director of Wigley Building and Development, has been expanded in light of an increasing volume of commercial projects being secured throughout the Midlands.

The business is now looking to add to its established network of subcontractors and suppliers to further support its rapid growth, and will be hosting a supply chain event on Wednesday, February 28.

The event will be held from 9.30am to 4.30pm, at Warwick Racecourse, where Wigley Building and Development has been principal contractor on two schemes.

Charlie said: “The expansion of our in-house management team and network of subcontractors and suppliers reflects a first year performance which has far exceeded our expectations.

“The combination of Ciexbe’s decades of experience and ability to deliver with the financial backing and depth of The Wigley Group has proved to be a strong force, and we have been appointed on a wide range of commercial projects.

“We now want to build on our supply chain and the event at Warwick Racecourse on February 28 is open to experienced and accredited subcontractors from all construction trades across the Midlands who want to be part of our wider team.”

Wigley Building and Development specialises in industrial, office, retail, leisure and residential sectors, from refurbishments and fit-outs to new builds, and from concept to completion, up to £12 million.

Projects to date include the new entrance and Coronation Club at Warwick Racecourse, the new Red Kangaroo trampoline park on the edge of Coventry, and a major expansion of Kite Packaging’s headquarters in the city.

 

A recent restructure of The Wigley Group involved the creation of a central services division to support its growing commercial property, risk and construction businesses, including Wigley Building and Development, in core operational areas.

 

Internal promotions have been made to head up the new division’s areas with Lisa Bristow as head of finance, Claire Lynch moving to head of compliance and Bill Watts becoming operations manager.
