Piers Ridout - Bericote Properties

Piers Ridout

Construction Director

I am ultimately responsible for delivery of our construction projects; ensuring they are delivered on time, reaching the high standards we set and meeting the requirements of all our stakeholders.

Here at Bericote we like to challenge the norms of construction – constantly seeking opportunities where we could reduce risk to delivery, improve a construction standard, be more sustainable (be it through construction methods or new technologies) or provide a wider community benefit. We love working on challenging sites that may have been previously contaminated and require the most skilled people in the industry to plan and execute each stage of development. I use our long-term relationships to make sure we have the best professional support.

Once our developments reach site, ensuring we deliver what our occupiers and funders want with minimal fuss is where my efforts are focussed. I work tirelessly to maintain our track record of always delivering on time and on budget; never failing on a promise. Our longer-term view on key development opportunities give us time and the ability to look for and make wider benefits for the development and surrounding community.

Alongside Bericote, I keep my batteries charged by being in the great outdoors with my young family or an occasional weekend climb with friends.
