Double appointments for Derbyshire construction firm

Following a series of new contract wins, Derbyshire building specialists, Enrok Construction, has further expanded its team with two new hires.

Dean Johnston joined the team in May as a site manager in Nottingham with assistant quantity surveyor, Charlie O’Grady, who will work across Enrok’s projects nationwide.

Originally from a bricklaying background and with over 30 years’ experience in the construction industry, Dean has a particular interest and passion for restoration and refurbishment. His previous projects have included renovating the French Consulate into luxury apartments and turning Stanley House in Nottingham into 100+ student flats.

His new role as site manager at Enrok will see him responsible for the restoration of a building situated in a conservation area of Nottingham, converting it into one and two bed residential apartments.

Dean says: “I’ve worked on projects in Nottingham for many years, so have a good knowledge of the local area. I love bringing buildings back to life. Too much is demolished when it could be carefully and sympathetically restored instead. Enrok understand that you are only as good as the team around you, so it’s a pleasure to be part of a firm that wants to create great work.”

As assistant quantity surveyor, Charlie will be working within Enrok’s commercial team while the firm supports him with completing his degree in Quantity Surveying and Commercial Management at Wolverhampton University.

Jordan Mallisch, director at Enrok Construction, says: “Dean has a real passion for restoration and loves bringing disused and unloved buildings back to their former glory. We’re really pleased he’s joined us. He’s a real team player and his values and work style fit perfectly with our mission to build high quality homes with intricate design, charm and excellent workmanship.

“Charlie also impressed us from the outset with his eagerness to learn and passion for all things construction. He is very professional and happy to take on responsibilities and new challenges. He really enjoys mixing time on site with time behind the screen, crunching numbers, which we are sure will stand him in good stead for his future construction career.”

The two new hires come on the back of internal promotions earlier in the year, with Simon Bennett MCIOB taking up the position of operations director and Charlotte Holyhead becoming commercial manager as the business sees continued growth in the first half of 2022.
