Apex Airspace working on string of jobs across London
A London developer who uses offsite methods to build homes on other people’s roofs has appointed a former Mace operations director to its construction team.
Apex Airspace was founded in 2015 and purchases airspace rights from owners of residential, commercial and public buildings – before putting in extensions using parts manufactured offsite.
Now the group has appointed Jonathan Poole as its new construction director bringing staff numbers at the Marylebone-based business up to 24 – up from 10 at the end of last year.
Before working at Mace, Poole also had stints at Bath-based housing association Curo and consultant Ridge.
Another former Curo and Ridge staffer, Ricardo Simoes, has joined the firm as a senior project manager. His CV includes spells at Capita and Davis Langdon.
The firm is currently working on five schemes, including a deal to build more than 30 apartments for Lambeth & Southwark Housing Association in Bermondsey.
Apex Airspace’s chief executive, Arshad Bhatti, said it was “in discussions” about developing 2,200 homes across both the public and private sectors in the capital.
