North West construction contractor, Krol Corlett, has appointed Peter Dunn as the company’s new Head of Construction, as part of a targeted growth strategy.
An experienced construction director who joins Krol Corlett from a national construction company, Peter brings 35 years’ construction sector experience to the Krol Corlett team, including a wide range of £multi-million projects. His track record and industry contacts across the North West will support Krol Corlett’s continuing growth, which has seen the company take on bigger projects and expand across Merseyside, Greater Manchester, Cheshire, Lancashire and West Yorkshire over the past three years.
“This is a critical period in our development as a business,” explains Simon Krol, Director at Krol Corlett. “Over the past few years we have successfully taken on larger projects while continuing to offer a flexible, agile service for projects of all sizes. We have also grown geographically and opened new offices in Manchester and Preston to enable us to offer high levels of reliable and expert service to clients across the region for a varied array of projects.
“Now is the time for us to build on those successes and Peter’s experience will be instrumental in enabling us to scale up without losing sight of our values, our heritage or our commitment to quality.”
Peter’s impressive track record includes residential, education and healthcare projects, with his experience in live hospital refurbishments dovetailing with Krol Corlett’s strength in the healthcare sector. His new role involves engaging with the existing supply chain and developing new supplier relationships, mentoring the team and developing Krol Corlett’s systems and health & safety best practice, along with direct involvement in tenders and live projects.
Peter adds: “Krol Corlett is a very dynamic business that has grown by showing ambition and embedding quality and collaboration in everything it does. The company’s willingness to invest in training, nurture its people and foster excellent relationships across both upstream and downstream delivery partners provides an excellent foundation for sustainable growth. Taking an active role in delivering on that potential is a very exciting prospect.”
