Capital&Centric bolsters ranks for next growth phase 

Scott Mallinson has joined the Manchester-based developer from DeTrafford, taking up the role of development director. 

Mallinson spent more than six years at DeTrafford as development lead where he helped deliver more than 400 homes across various projects. 

In his new role at Capital&Centric, he will head up the regeneration of Farnworth town centre and the redevelopment of Ancoats Works and Talbot Mill, both in Manchester. 

“I’ve always admired Capital&Centric from afar and kept track of the cool stuff they were up to, so it’s brilliant to now be part of the team,” Mallinson said. 

“I have spent the last few years in development, but my background is in the management of big construction contracts. With the sheer scale of the regeneration projects coming up, it’s the perfect time for me to get stuck in and deliver the design-led communities that have become our hallmark.” 

Mallinson’s appointment comes after that of Jonathan Nolan in March. He joined the company as a development manager after four years with RPS Group. 

Meanwhile, Tom Wilmot and John Moffat have been promoted, becoming joint managing directors after six and five years at the firm respectively.  

“It really feels like the next chapter for Capital&Centric,” said co-founder Adam Higgins. 

“Let’s be honest, it’s an uncertain time and things aren’t easy – with rising costs left, right and centre. But we’re doubling down and are determined to deliver not only anchor developments in the places we’re working but also genuine social value. 

“Ultimately, we’re showing that northern communities deserve awesome design and vibrant places to live and work, just as much as those who choose to build a life in London. Our solo work as well as partnerships with local authorities are delivering that in spades.” 

Capital&Centric’s other schemes include the redevelopment of Weir Mill in Stockport and the regeneration of Littlewoods Studios in Liverpool.  

The developer claims to spend almost £3m a week on regeneration.
