Operations chief to leave Chinese contractor BCEG UK

The operations director of Beijing Construction Engineering Group UK has resigned after three years in post.

Gavin Taylor has been with the company since it entered the UK market in October 2013 by way of an $800m investment in Manchester Airport City. He will leave at the end of this year, after which time his role will be taken over by fellow director Dongwen Yu on a temporary basis.

Taylor said: "I have immensely enjoyed the past three years working with the company. It has been a privilege to work with the team and I am sure BCEGI will continue its expansion and success here."

Yu joined BCEG International in 2009 as a site engineer. He said: "Gavin has contributed considerably to BCEGI’s growth in Manchester. We will miss him and wish him every success for his future career."

Dongwen Yu will act as caretaker operations head

As well as the expansion to Manchester airport, the Beijing-based company has carried out a number of other schemes in northwest England, including the £700m Middlewood Locks residential scheme in Salford for Scarborough Group, and the £200m St Michael’s redevelopment in Manchester, whose investors include footballers Gary Neville and Ryan Giggs.
