Tilia Homes Northern appoints new technical team lead

WARRINGTON-headquartered Tilia Homes Northern has appointed Chris Whyte to lead its growing technical team.

With more than 15 years’ experience in construction and technical engineering, Whyte brings a broad portfolio of skills and expertise to the Warrington-based homebuilder.

Whyte joins from Morris Homes where he was for five years, leaving as Technical Director and Taylor Wimpey before that.

His impressive career has seen him take roles at Councils across the North West, including Manchester City Council, where he and the team were responsible for the cross city infrastructure works, including changes to major road networks and key transport routes in the centre, including the guided bus ways.

Chris comments: “I’ve been in the construction sector since I was 18 years old and, in that time, I’ve seen so much change, much for the good. To see both Councils and private homebuilders look to prioritise the design of community infrastructure, building design and, ultimately, the way we utilise open space has been a fascinating journey to be a part of.

“I’m most looking forward to the new challenge here at Tilia Homes and working with a passionate and talented team to drive technical innovation across the region to create operational efficiencies that benefit the business, but more importantly, our customers and the communities in which we build.”

Chris’ appointment is the latest in a series of milestone announcements from the business over the past 12 months. The homebuilder was acquired by investment house Terra Firm in June 2021 before opening a brand-new office in Birchwood Business Park, home to more than 90 people.

Stuart Craig, Regional Managing Director for Tilia Homes Northern, adds: “Tilia Homes Northern will greatly benefit from Chris’ unparalleled technical experience both the public sector and private construction.

“We’re committed to building quality homes and having the right team and talent in place is fundamental to this. We’re thrilled to welcome Chris on board and look forward to the positive impact he will make to the business.”

Tilia Homes is actively seeking new land opportunities for sites of between 75 and 330 units across the M6 and M62 corridors, specifically targeting areas around Preston, Clitheroe, Liverpool and Manchester. Further land opportunities are also being sought in the Yorkshire Area.
