make Our Story

Our People

Mark Irving, Production Manager

I would describe Story Homes as ambitious, unique, impressive, driven and friendly.

I was a bricklayer and basically I wasn’t laying bricks everyday where I was working at the time. I had been with them for 12 years. I was longing to work on big sites and build houses every day and I heard of Fred Story when I was waiting to get a filling at the dentist one day. I rang that afternoon and got a start two weeks later, so this is only the second job I have ever had!

My day-to-day role involves helping to coach and mentor our Site Managers plus liaising with our Sales team to ensure that our existing developments are running smoothly and we are delivering a high quality product. I’m also involved in ongoing discussions with our Technical and Commercial teams regarding future Story Homes sites. My job can be challenging and requires a certain amount of problem solving and trouble-shooting – but that’s all part of the reason why I enjoy it so much.

The parts of my role I enjoy the most are producing a product I can be proud of and having the control to make decisions that can make a site look great. I take pride in delivering high levels of customer satisfaction and watching the plants and turf getting laid on a new home!
