Hale Builds Senior Team to Drive Expansion

Hale, the construction specialist in the bespoke private homes sector, has appointed two new contract managers as the company rolls out its strategy for expansion and wins larger high-end residential projects.


Peter Woodhouse joins the company as senior contract manager with 40 years’ experience in construction and refurbishment of high-end domestic properties for private clients. Joining Hale from luxury residential specialist RW Armstrong, where he was responsible for projects up to £8 million, he has also delivered a range of commercial and education projects in previous roles, alongside luxury homes. Having begun his career as a joinery and carpentry apprentice, Peter has also previously operated a small developer/construction business and brings a keen eye for detail to Hale, along with knowledge across all construction trades.

Ian Searle-Walls joins Hale as contract manager with responsibility for delivering high-end residential projects. With a passion for contemporary design and sustainability, Ian joins the company following successful completion of a multi-million pound bespoke home project in Leatherhead with his former employer Grangewood Southern. His previous experience also includes delivery of a prestigious thorough-bred stud farm, across a 330 acre site in Surrey. Previously a carpenter for 10 years, he is quality-driven with a collaborative approach to working with professionals across all disciplines on site.

Peter commented: “Hale is at a really exciting and critical time in the company’s growth, having delivered a number of stunning bespoke homes, involving a variety of architects. The company has built a reputation for outstanding quality and a construction service that prioritises the best outcome for the client and project. This is very much aligned to my approach, and I am looking forward to leveraging my experience as we continue to develop our portfolio with larger prestige contracts.”

Ian added: “Hale has delivered an enviable portfolio of innovative contemporary new builds and sympathetic refurbishments, and my new role is a great opportunity to be part of a business that aims to produce the very best work possible on every project. With a number of new projects in the pipeline, there are busy times ahead and I can’t wait to play a part in the next phase of Hale’s expansion.”
