Big Red Construction has appointed Greg Wood as its new interim Managing Director. Greg joins the role as the BR2.0 group prepares for significant expansion under the new end-to-end premise of ‘Develop, Deliver, Maintain’.

Greg has most recently served as Operations Director for the business, but the new role comes as the firm embarks on several major new residential projects and takes up its new headquarters in Manchester city centre.

“This is an incredibly exciting time for the business as we continue to grow and deliver increasingly complex and high-value projects. Having seen the business evolve to where it is today since I joined the Group in 2021, I’m very proud of what has already been achieved and excited for the next phase.

“We have a brilliant and committed team who are delivering some exceptional work. Leading the construction arm of the group into this critical phase and ensuring that we put in place the right leadership team for the long term is a challenge that I’m looking forward to.”

Part of Greg’s role will be looking for a long-term senior hire to lead the construction arm of the business as it integrates into the wider group. Alongside other Group companies, Xpercity and Inspired, Big Red Construction has a growing pipeline of projects in key locations throughout the North and Midlands.

In the next few months, Big Red Construction will be seeking a permanent Managing Director to lead the business into its next phase of growth as a part of the BR2.0 Group offer. The new appointment will be tasked with consolidating Big Red Construction’s growth trajectory, ensuring it is able to match the ambitions of the Group.

 “The establishment of the BR2.0 group is immense. We are expanding our business sustainably to ensure we can make a real change to society through our property product. Big Red is an established construction company which will continue to thrive under the leadership of Greg.

“Greg and I have known, and worked with, each other numerous years and our visions are aligned for the future of the Big Red and the BR2.0 group.”
