Capital & Centric hires for housing specialism
Former Urban Splash development director Tom Fenton has joined Capital & Centric, to grow the developer’s residential offering.
Fenton will lead on the evolution of Capital & Centric’s modular homes concept, Nowhaus, as well as the company’s wider residential ambitions. In partnership with Henry Boot Developments, this includes 480 apartments for the private rented sector at Kampus, Manchester.
Fenton delivered more than 1,000 new homes during thirteen years of development at Urban Splash, and more recently has spent three years focusing on regeneration and placemaking in deprived areas for Sheffield Housing Company.
Adam Higgins, co-founder of Capital & Centric, said: “Capital & Centric is currently working on a portfolio of nearly 2,000 PRS and private sale residential units, so bringing in someone of Tom’s experience gives us a great platform to deliver these.”
Fenton added: “I’m excited to be joining Capital & Centric at such an important time in its evolution and to have the opportunity to work in such a creative environment that has already delivered so much in a relatively short space of time. With the continuing shortage of good quality and architecturally led housing solutions still being provided by the mainstream market, we feel this is exactly the right time to be bringing the Capital & Centric approach to this sector.”
