Allan joins CBH

Allan Corfield joins Custom Build Homes Management Team as Head of Architecture and Placemaking.

Custom Build Homes, the UK’s preeminent Enabler of custom and self-build housing, is pleased to announce that Allan Corfield has joined the company in the role of Head of Architecture and Placemaking on a part-time basis. Allan will perform his role in parallel with running his award-winning practice, ACA.

Having supported Founder, Tom Connor to develop Custom Build Homes since its inception, Allan brings a wealth of experience and a deep understanding of custom and self-build design, construction, and project management.

As Head of Architecture and Placemaking, Allan will be responsible for developing and overseeing the Architecture and Urban Design requirements, including the recruitment of staff to build capacity in the fast-growing company. His keen passion for self-build, technical knowledge, and keenness to implement design led, sustainable solutions enable him to play a pivotal role in the scaling of self-commissioned housing at Custom Build Homes.


“We are thrilled to welcome Allan to our Team. We have worked together across several custom and self-build development projects to date, and it just made sense to formalise our existing relationship which I am sure will accelerate Custom Build Homes’ growth and consolidate its position in the market. The appointment echoes when Mario Wolf joined the company to lead our planning function in 2020. Both are industry recognised experts for custom and self-build housing, and we’re excited to see how our design team will benefit from Allan’s involvement, as we all have from Mario’s”
