Tim Metcalfe spent twelve years with Robertson Homes before a brief sojourn elsewhere. He has now been welcomed back and given the top job in the North region, encompassing Scotland North of Perth.
A CA by profession, Tim’s first entry to the property industry saw him undertake audits of house building and construction activities all over the world but, for the last twenty years, he has worked exclusively in house building in the UK.
He said, “I had been moving increasingly towards operational roles over the years and jumped at the chance to lead the vision for not just a region – but one where Robertson Homes’ heart lies; the business having started in Elgin over fifty years ago.
“I’m relishing the opportunity to grow the business and am actively seeking suitable land around Inverness, Aviemore and along the Moray coast.
“I also have Robertson Homes’ prestigious Westercraigs development in Inverness within my patch and it brings huge pleasure to see three very different developments all taking shape at the head of the Great Glen.”
John Murphy, MD of Robertson Homes, added, “The North is in a growth phase and Tim’s appointment will help us take things to another level across the region.
“Westercraigs has been a flagship project for Robertson Homes for over a decade and Tim played a key part in its development process. Now, as Regional Director, he gets the pleasure of seeing the prestige redevelopment of the existing listed building, Great Glen Hall and its surrounding area come to fruition.”
One of Tim’s first milestone tasks is the completion of the tower roof, which is being craned onto the Western Tower Block of Great Glen Hall at the end of April. The original towers were landmarks in Inverness were destroyed by fire in 2007. This is the key part of the £13 million refurbishment project, creating 68 new homes within the impressive stone buildings of the former hospital
