ENGIE strengthens regeneration leadership in the North

7th May 2021

ENGIE, leading energy, services and regeneration specialist, has responded to increasing demand from local authority partners across the North West; by welcoming a new Regional Managing Director, to strengthen the company’s existing expertise in delivering high-quality construction projects and zero carbon solutions.

Tim Wood, former Group Commercial Director at United Living, has taken up the role of Regional Managing Director within ENGIE’s Places & Communities division.

Tim, who has worked in the construction and services sector for 35 years, said: “I’m delighted to join ENGIE, a leader in the regeneration, services and energy sectors and an innovative business that continues to support local authorities, housing associations and private businesses. We aim to improve the environments we all live and work in, by designing, renovating and building, energy efficient properties, whilst supporting and investing in local communities.”

As a leading provider of regeneration services in the UK, combined with unique capabilities in energy, and services, ENGIE is well placed as the partner of choice to help businesses and local authorities in the transition to a zero-carbon future – covering everything from community regeneration and refurbishment to repairs; maintenance and major new builds and developments.

Tim aims to build on the North West region’s already established construction success across housing, education, retail, commercial and energy.

He added: “We have a talented workforce, with a lot of opportunities ahead of us. We hope to build on our achievements and continue to deliver innovative and pioneering solutions for our customers and partners, whilst also supporting them with their zero carbon ambitions.”

Recent and current examples of ENGIE’s capabilities across the North West includes, over £70m of new build housing projects already being delivered across Cheshire and Manchester, planning approval for a new £60m low carbon community in Miles Platting, the construction of a new Helipad for Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust (MFT); delivery of a new solar PV farm for Flintshire County Council and long term refurbishment contracts with Your Housing Group, Anchor Hanover and Clarion.
