UK property developer Godwin Developments announces it has made a senior appointment to bolster its deliver team. The appointed, Steven Gascoyne, is a highly experienced construction and consultancy professional, who is joining the company as Associate Director – Construction.

With a career spanning 25 years in a wide range of sectors – from residential and leisure to industrial and logistics – Steven has in-depth knowledge and extensive hands-on experience in construction delivery. He will assume responsibility for some of Godwin’s largest construction projects across the country, working closely with the business’s in-house teams and a broad range of external property partners and consultants nationwide.
