A Driving Force in Construction Projects

According to our new Operations Director, Enrok’s dedicated team of construction professionals is “breaking the mould and culture of a typical construction firm – especially around delivering flexibility to meet client needs”. But then we would say that wouldn’t we!

True to our ethos of developing talent from within, after being a driving force within the business over the past 12 months as Operations Manager, our newly promoted Operations Director Simon Bennett MCIOB has taken on overall responsibility of operations.

Simon will be taking a lead in design management and working within the heart of our pre-construction team, giving our founders Laura and Jordan Mallisch more time to focus on growing other areas of the business.

Since joining Enrok Construction just over a year ago Simon has played a key role on a number of projects in London and closer to home, including the new £3 million Hartshill Medical Centre, the Ashbourne Sports Pavilion and the Zinc House in Catherine-de-Barnes.

Simon started his career as an estimator before moving into operations, working as a Trainee Site Manager prior to progressing into project and design management. Before joining Enrok he worked at several large construction firms across commercial, industrial and retail projects sectors as well as residential new builds, refurbishment and heritage projects.

Studying at Wolverhampton University alongside his on-the-job experience, Simon became a Chartered Construction Manager 2020. Commenting on his promotion, Simon said: “This is a fantastic opportunity to work with a young family business doing a brilliant job of making their mark on the construction industry. I like Enrok’s vision and what they are trying to do in the market. I totally buy into their values and I’m very excited about the part that I can play to contribute to future success.”

Laura Mallisch, Director at Enrok Construction comments: “Simon is a huge asset to Enrok. He treats the business as he would his own and shares our vision for the future. This is the second strategic internal promotion we’ve made in as many months, with the new role created for commercial manager, Charlotte Holyhead announced in April. We are excited about what we can achieve with Simon and Charlotte as a part of our specialist team of construction experts.”
