Get to know your Site Manager Ivan Cooke – Peveril Site Manager, The Paddocks at Packington

How long have you worked for Peveril Homes?
Since March of this year – 2017, so I’m fairly new to the company.

How long have you been a Site Manager?
A long time! I worked my way up from being an Assistant Site Manager originally.

What does your day-to-day role involve?
A huge amount of organisation. It’s my role to always be prepared. I Iive by the adage ‘proper planning and preparation prevents poor performance,’ and planning – usually around 6 weeks in advance – is incredibly important when building a development of brand new homes.

It’s my role to have knowledge and understanding of the tasks that need to be completed each day, so I’m constantly reviewing drawings, assessing what materials we have or will need, scheduling our sub-contractors, going through inductions and health and safety procedures, overcoming any issues we might have etc.

What do you enjoy most about your working day? And what’s the best part about working for Peveril?
I just love building, so I love my job – it genuinely feels more like a hobby than work! I enjoy building something of quality – using quality materials – and seeing it through to the finish.

Peveril Homes is an excellent company to work for as I feel truly supported. If I encounter any issues, I give my directors a call and nothing is too much trouble – they’ll help sort things quickly. I’ve worked for companies where directors have never even visited the site I’m working on, and I’ve been expected to overcome issues on my own. Peveril’s collaborative way of working runs through the whole business and it makes everyone’s day so much easier and more enjoyable.

What’s the most impressive feature of The Paddocks at Packington?
I guess I would say this, but it’s true – from the cottage-style houses to the 5-beds, every new home at The Paddocks is absolutely stunning and they’ve been designed to perfectly complement the existing properties in this lovely Leicestershire village. Once all completed, they really will have the ‘wow’ factor and The Paddocks is already becoming one of Peveril Homes’ most popular developments.

The show home  and marketing suite for The Paddocks at Packington are open Thursday to Monday, 11am until 5pm. Prices start from £232,995. Call Peveril Sales Executive Lynn Korczak on 01530 417808 or email thepaddocks@peverilhomes.co.uk to find out more.
