Caddick Construction Appoints New North West MD

Caddick Construction Group has appointed Dave Saville as Regional Managing Director for the North West, representing new leadership for the region following its most successful year to date, with turnover in excess of £150m in 2023.

Dave joins Caddick Construction from Wates Construction where he has been Managing Director for the North and Midlands since 2022 following three years as Business Unit Director for the North West.

With 30 years of industry experience, Dave brings a wealth of expertise to his new role at Caddick Construction, having led a number of major private and public sector projects before leading John Sisk & Son and Wates’ North West regional businesses.

As Regional MD at Caddick Construction, Dave will lead a team of 130 in delivering a diverse portfolio of projects across the North West, including high profile residential, commercial, manufacturing and industrial developments.

Dave’s appointment closely follows news that current Regional MD, Ian Threadgold, is set to retire following a nine-year tenure at Caddick Construction.

With a career spanning three decades, Dave has held a number of leadership roles, including 20 years with Laing O’Rourke, with projects including a number of PFI, healthcare and education projects delivered using modern methods of construction.

In Dave’s previous role, he oversaw projects across the North and Midlands in the leisure, low-rise residential, blue light, education and manufacturing sectors. The latter included Astrazeneca’s new Sterile Production Plant in Macclesfield.

Of his appointment, Dave commented: “Caddick is a strong brand in the North West, and its position in the market is down to the Caddick business and its balance sheet. I’m honoured to be taking the reins of a business with such an excellent reputation, and I’m excited to be continuing to deliver the high standards Caddick is known for.

“As I take on this role I want to recognise the many talented people that make up the North West Caddick team, and they will be my focus, along with our clients, projects and supply chain. Looking to the future, I’m determined to preserve and build on Caddick’s success as an approachable and sustainable business that works with integrity. In-line with Caddick Construction Group’s wider strategy, we will also look to grow our presence on regional frameworks to balance our portfolio of public and private sector projects.”

Paul Dodsworth, Managing Director of Caddick Construction Group, comments: “Ian Threadgold built an incredible team, a stable business and a strong reputation for Caddick Construction in the North West, all of which we’re committed to nurture and grow. Having worked with Dave previously, I’m confident that he has the right attributes, passion, knowledge and determination to achieve this. We’re very excited to welcome Dave to the Caddick team and look forward to what the future holds for Caddick in the North West and Cumbria.”
