Graham Hill takes on construction director role at Savista

Former Balfour Beatty London managing director Graham Hill has been appointed construction director of a care homes builder.

Hill left Balfour in January this year, having been in the role since August 2015. He was replaced by former Laing O’Rourke executive Lindsay McGibbon, who only joined Balfour last December after 16 years at O’Rourke.

Hill is now construction director at Savista

Hill has now emerged at Essex-based Savista Developments and will work on its care homes and recently launched assisted living brand Santhem Residences.

Savista was launched two years ago and is the construction arm of Hallmark Care Homes.

Under Hill’s leadership, Balfour emerged as a challenger to traditional London tower builders such as Mace and Multiplex but is also believed to have run into problems on a £200m upmarket residential scheme at Curzon Street in Mayfair for Brockton Capital.
