Rob Carter

Managing Director

I take responsibility for land purchase, planning applications, financial control and new house sales.

My family and I live in Winchester in a house built by Millgate so I am able to give you a good insight into life in the city in a Millgate property.

If you wish to discuss a potential development site or would like to know more about the new homes we have for sale I am your point of contact.

I can be contacted by email or phone: 01962 841934

Adrian Surtees

Development Director

Adrian is responsible for the technical engineering and design that contributes to the success of each of our new homes.

Adrian combines traditional building techniques with modern methods of construction to ensure our new homes are built to the highest quality standards. Adrian’s focus is to make sure that owning and living in a Millgate property is always a pleasure.

For our customers Adrian is their guarantee of quality for those vital aspects of a new home that you cannot see. Each aspect is designed and built with meticulous precision and attention to detail.

James Rockett

Construction Director

James has worked with us for nearly a decade and in his calm and organised way he ensures the successful project co-ordination on each of our sites.

James also works with our new owners and integrates the personal finishing touches for buyers that purchase from us ‘off plan’.

Riccardo Simonato

Project Manager

Originally from Italy, where he trained as an architect, Riccardo has been with us since 2015 and is responsible for the management of all of our projects from inception to the finished home. He works alongside our Site Managers to ensure our developments run smoothly and to schedule. Working with our trusted sub-contractors, as well as sourcing new ones, he keeps up to date with new styles and design and incorporates these harmoniously to deliver homes of exceptional quality for our customers.

Julian Pike

Site Manager

Julian started in the construction industry as a bricklayer and has now been a Site Manager for over 10 years managing both large and smaller residential sites all over the south of England. Highly organised and with a strong attention to detail he keeps his sites running smoothly and efficiently to deliver our quality homes on time and to our exacting standards.

Michele Pinetti

Site Manager

Also from Italy Michele joined us as an Assistant Site Manager to work with Julian but has quickly proved his ability and recently took over his own site as Site Manager. Quick to learn and a good leader he works well with his team and the sub-contractors to run an efficient site. Michele recognises the importance of the fine details which ensures that the homes he delivers to our customers are of the exceptional quality they associate with Millgate Winchester.

Sean Lystor

Architectural Technologist and Contract Administrator

Sean joined the team in February 2015 to assist Adrian in the technical design of our homes. Sean is responsible for the communication of information from our 3D modelling software to site and also provides technical design information during the construction phase.

Lucy Churcher

Office Manager

With the business growing over the last few years we found the need for someone to co-ordinate the teams in the office and on site. Lucy joined us as Office Manager with over 25 years management experience and has a strong management style which enables her to bring the team together. She has a “can do” attitude and is the main point of contact working for all our new homeowners.
