David Colebourn | Development Director
David is an experienced professional in the construction industry, with a career spanning over three decades, starting as an apprentice electrician in 1994 and working for contractors around the NW of England. In 2006, David started an electrical contracting business working with local housing associations and property developers.
In 2010, David shifted his focus to property development and operational management, embarking on a fruitful partnership with a developer to acquire and develop HMOs. Building on this success, he expanded his operations in 2014 to include student halls and hostels in Liverpool city centre. Taking charge of a struggling portfolio of over two hundred student pods and studios on behalf of leaseholders and investors, David showcased his expertise by transforming the properties into profitable ventures, generating positive returns on investment.
In 2018, David's ambitious expansion efforts led to the acquisition of a prominent student accommodation building on Bold Street, a renowned location in Liverpool. Demonstrating his vision and adaptability, he successfully redeveloped the property into a captivating boutique hotel, which was completed just as the pandemic struck in 2020. Despite the challenging circumstances, Hotel 105, as it is now known, has emerged as a sought-after and distinctive venue in the vibrant Rope Walks Conservation Area.
David's unwavering resilience and strategic leadership during the pandemic have earned him recognition and admiration from suppliers and partners. Notably, a senior manager within Liverpool City Council has recommended him as "One of our developers that delivers." With his sights set on further acquisitions, David is poised to continue expanding his operations and leaving a positive mark on the dynamic property development landscape.
