New Construction Director at Orbit Homes

Orbit Homes has appointed Jon Love to the role of Construction Director for Orbit Homes South.

Announcing the appointment, Orbit Homes Managing Director, Helen Moore, said: “I’m delighted that Jon is joining the team. Jon has extensive experience delivering projects of every scale and, having worked with him in recent years, I know that his fresh ideas and new perspective will support us as we look to build more homes and communities, and further develop our multi-tenure offering.”

Bringing a wealth of construction and regeneration experience, including Berkley’s major regeneration schemes Royal Arsenal in Woolwich and Gun Wharf Keys in Portsmouth, Jon joins from City & Country where he was Construction Director overseeing the refurbishment and renovation of multiple heritage projects.

Jon commented: “After over 30 years in the construction industry, I’m delighted to be joining Orbit. It is a great business with a strong reputation and leadership, and one which is really embracing new building techniques and land-led development.”

“But what really appealed to me about Orbit was its difference: it’s ethos of reinvesting profits into building more much needed homes, in supporting local economies and working with social enterprises, and in investing in our communities to help them thrive. It’s great to know that what we are doing is truly having a positive impact on other people’s lives and I’m very much looking forward to playing my part.”

Prior to joining Orbit, Jon held positions at City & Country, Berkeley, Wilmott Dixon and Barratt Homes.
