Local builder, Mark Follos, has been named as one of the rising stars of sustainability in the country.

Senior Site Manager at Lightmoor Green, Crest Nicholson’s development of new homes for Telford, Mark has been selected as one of the Top 50 professionals under the age of 40 who are helping to improve sustainability in construction.


Mark beat off stiff competition from nominations made by leading figures in the sustainability sector, previous names on the list, as well as Ecobuild speakers, to be recognised on the list collated by reputed industry title Building magazine.

Mark Follos, Crest Nicholson Senior Site Manager at Lightmoor Green, said: “All buildings have an impact on the environment, whether it be in design, construction or occupation, and I firmly believe it’s our responsibility as considerate builders to always work as sustainably as possible.  At Lightmoor Green for example, we harvest rainwater, segregate our waste for recycling and monitor fuel consumption.  I see sustainability as an investment for future generations and I’m thrilled to have been included in Building’s Top 50 – it really is a testament to the commitment of the entire site team here at Lightmoor Green, who have wholeheartedly embraced the changes.”

Lightmoor Green is the flagship contribution to Lightmoor Village from award-winning housebuilder Crest Nicholson.  Comprising 66 high specification new houses and apartments, it offers plenty for couples and families alike. Built around the concepts of community and sustainability, the two, three, four and five bedroom homes have expertly designed contemporary interiors combined with a traditional exterior that blends perfectly with nearby architecture and the surrounding Shropshire countryside, whilst still ensuring an original identity of its own.
