Mansfield resident appointed as Architectural Technologist with Rippon Homes

Posted on 2nd September 2019 in News & Views

Mansfield-based housebuilder Rippon Homes has recently welcomed a new Architectural Technologist, who is a resident of the town, to its expanding team.

Gary Wright, 33, who lives with his wife Rebecca, also 33, and their two cats, was appointed to the position in July 2019.

Having spent a period of eight years working in the architectural sector, Gary then transitioned into the housing industry, in which he has spent the past six years of his career.

“I first discovered the job when driving past the Wellow Gardens development in Ollerton, and just out of interest, decided to look up the developer,” Gary explains.

“Upon finding out that it was Rippon, I not only saw that they were local to me, but also that they were advertising for an architectural role.

“The convenience of finding a job well suited to my skills and nearby to where I lived really appealed to me as I was already on the lookout for a new opportunity that would allow me to improve my work/life balance following the previous six years of commuting long distances.”

On a day-to-day basis, Gary’s job sees him producing the technical drawings for Rippon’s upcoming developments, and ensuring that they are delivered on time for the start of construction.

“I have been given an incredibly warm welcome by Rippon and I’m delighted to say that I’m settling in well,” continues Gary.

“Given it’s such a tight-knit team that we have, you can’t help but feel that you’re part of a family, and I’m excited to see what the future might hold.”

In his spare time, Gary enjoys being in the great outdoors, hikes regularly with Rebecca, and is also a keen fell runner and mountain biker.

“My love of the outdoors also spills into another passion of mine – photography,” he adds.

“While I mostly capture landscapes, the cats often find themselves as the subject behind the lens too!”

Ian Dyke, Managing Director of Rippon Homes, said: “I would like to wish Gary a very warm welcome to the team.

“He brings an impressive range of experience working in both architecture and the housing industry to the role, and I’m confident that his talents will continue to flourish with us here at Rippon.”
