Meet the Team

The team at Hugr Homes has a wealth of experience in planning, development and environmental consultancy. We want to use this experience to provide people with homes that meet their needs, not the commercial needs of the mass housing developers.

Joe Higginson MRICS

Joe is an experienced commercial surveyor and has worked on numerous regeneration and residential projects across the north over the last 25 years.

He is unfailingly optimistic and is able to come up with innovative solutions to seemingly intractable development problems. Frustrated by the poor quality and lack of choice provided by the current housing market he sees custom build as a great way to give people the opportunity to live in the home of their dreams.

His experience and commercial acumen will be invaluable in helping you to design and build your own home.

Jon Abbatt MBA, MRICS

Jon has worked in environmental consultancy for over 25 years working on renewable energy, residential and infrastructure projects.

He is passionate about finding solutions to the housing crisis and creating better and more sustainable places for people to live and work. Having effectively lived on a building site since the age of 6, as his parents renovated and built new homes,  he believes that providing the opportunity for people to design and build their homes is a great way to provide more and better housing
