Greg Wood Takes the Reins as Interim MD for Big Red Construction


Greg Wood has been welcomed into a new role as interim MD of Big Red Construction, as the BR2.0 group prepares for significant expansion under the new end-to-end premise of Develop, Deliver, Maintain.

He has most recently served as Operations Director for the group business, but the new role comes as Big Red Construction embarks on several major new residential projects, and as the Group takes up its new headquarters in Manchester City Centre. Part of his role will be looking for a long-term senior hire to lead the construction arm of the business as it integrates into the wider group.

Alongside other Group companies, Xpercity and Inspired, Big Red Construction has a growing pipeline of projects in key locations throughout the North and Midlands.

Greg Wood, Interim MD of Big Red Construction said:

“This is an incredibly exciting time for the business as we continue to grow and deliver increasingly complex and high-value projects. Having seen the business evolve to where it is today since I joined the Group in 2021, I’m very proud of what has already been achieved and excited for the next phase. We have a brilliant and committed team who are delivering some exceptional work. Leading the construction arm of the group into this critical phase and ensuring that we put in place the right leadership team for the long term is a challenge that I’m looking forward to.”

Mike Lomas, Founder and CEO of the BR2.0 Group said:

“The establishment of the BR2.0 group is immense. We are expanding our business sustainably to ensure we can make a real change to society through our property product. Big Red is an established construction company which will continue to thrive under the leadership of Greg. Greg and I have known, and worked with, each other a number of years and our visions are aligned for the future of the Big Red and the BR2.0 group.”

The team behind Big Red Construction recently announced an evolution of its business following significant investment into the company and a raft of senior hires. BR2.0 will provide end-to-end property solutions, across development; construction; and asset maintenance, under the ethos of ‘Develop. Deliver. Maintain.’.

Over the coming months Big Red Construction will be seeking a permanent MD to lead the business into its next phase of growth as a part of the BR2.0 Group offer. The individual will be tasked with consolidating Big Red Construction’s growth trajectory, ensuring it is able to match the ambitions of the Group.
