Award-winning regional contractor Baggaley Construction has appointed Phil Askin as managing director.

Formerly the Mansfield-based company’s commercial director, Phil has taken over the role from Ian Baggaley who, after six years in the post, succeeds his father as chairman of Baggaley Group.

Commenting on his appointment, Phil said: “Baggaley Construction is the epitome of a well-run, family-owned regional contractor as it consistently delivers quality and value for its clients.

“I believe there’s a great opportunity to capitalise on the company’s strong reputation in both the private and public sectors and I am excited to be in a position to help deliver the next part of its growth plans.”

Phil joined the company in January 2011 as commercial director. A chartered quantity surveyor and a graduate of Nottingham Trent University, he trained at John Laing and developed his career with Wates Construction.

Baggaley Construction employs more than 130 people and has an annual turnover of £50m, with 80 per cent of its business coming from repeat clients.

The company is part of a number of framework agreements including, among others, East Midlands Property Alliance, YORbuild (the Yorkshire Regional Framework), and the Repair and Maintenance Framework for District of North West Leicestershire and Borough of Charnwood, Leicestershire County Council and Sport England.
