Meet the Team: Matt Lampard, Site Manager
In order to gain the best insight into a new housing development, we believe you need to speak to those on the ground and at Cable Wharf, we’re proud to have so many dedicated and enthusiastic people working behind the scenes to create your dream home.
Meet Matt Lampard, our site manager:
How long have you been in the industry?
“I’ve been in management for over six years, four of which have been at Keepmoat Homes. My job involves overseeing the programme of the development which includes; breaking the processes down into manageable stages, ensuring the work is completed within a set timeframe and to a high standard, completing weekly site audits, briefing the team on the required works that need completing and hosting weekly meetings with the sales team on site. I am also responsible for monitoring and supervising the day to day health and safety at the development, making sure the workplace is a safe environment for colleagues and contractors.”
What’s the best part of the job?
“My favourite part about the job is seeing a house being built from the foundations all the way through to the customer receiving their keys. It’s extremely rewarding knowing that you’ve been able to provide someone with their dream home, which they will make many treasured memories in.”
What’s your favourite room in the house and why?
“It has to be the lounge – who doesn’t love lazy Sunday afternoons laid on the couch?”
How do you like spending your free time?
“Most evenings I spend with Ralphie, my 8-month-old Cavapoochon, and we usually either go for a walk around the park, play fetch or just settle down for a cuddle on the sofa. I also enjoy going out for a run every so often - and one of my biggest achievements is breaking the 2-hour barrier in a half marathon. Before COVID-19, weekends were a great opportunity to catch up with friends, but that’s becoming a distant memory these days.”
What do you think is the best thing about Cable Wharf?
“Cable Wharf is unique in the sense that one side has a river view setting and the other is a cliff side. What’s more, the development has so much of history which we’re keen to treasure and harness. The site used to be a pleasure garden which contained the Rosherville Bear Pit – and this bear pit can still be seen today (situated in the middle of phase one) and will remain as a historical feature at the development.”
Why should people move to Cable Wharf?
“From a new school which will be built towards the end of the project, to retail and food outlets, Cable Wharf will be home to all of the amenities you could wish for, right on your doorstep. Not to mention residents in the flats will have great views along the river.”
How long will the development take to complete?
“Cable Wharf is a five-year plan from start to finish and once complete, will contain a selection of two-, three- and four- bedroom houses as well as one- and two- bedroom apartments. I personally think this is an ideal mix of properties to create a great community feel.”
How long does it take for a house to be built?
“It roughly takes around 23 weeks for a traditional house to be built. Cable Wharf has 12 home styles available and it’s all about building practical, stylish and comfortable houses that our customers will want to call home.”
