Meet the Team
Alastair Morris and Justin Pitman formed Quantum in 2014 with a view to developing land throughout the South East of England. Alastair and Justin have worked together for over 4 years recognising the joint skills they can bring to the housing development market. At the heart of Quantum is the understanding of what planners need for their communities and the environment in which to deliver not only the appropriate high quality housing, but ensuring there is a cohesive integration of any development within the community. Already there are over 400 proposed dwellings that have entered the planning process and Quantum are also pleased to be building numerous schemes across South East England.
Alastair has over 20 years’ experience in the property industry. He specialises in development planning and finance, with a full understanding of the planning process and what is required to achieve a successful result. This ranges from the most basic of applications right through to the more complex issues that have led to Public Inquiries and even the High Court. He also has a thorough understanding of the legal issues that can be associated with development i.e. Restrictive Covenants, Defective Titles and Rights of Light.
Alastair started his career in New Homes Development with a local property developer in Surrey before moving to head up the South East Division of Gladedale which at the time was Britain’s largest private housebuilder. In 2009 he co-founded a new start-up company called Vantage Corporation and having achieved his goals, sold the company in April 2014.
Quantum was established in June 2014, with the vision of providing high specification residential property in sought after locations.
Justin has over 28 years’ experience of running his own businesses. With a deep understanding of business financials and a long standing passion for property and the associated design challenges, Justin decided to translate his business knowledge into the property world. With currently over 16 years property development expertise, Justin has woven himself in to the fabric of the development and planning community with a focus of delivering bespoke housing solutions to new site developments.
Working with award winning architects and eco-friendly manufacturers, Justin has delivered not only bespoke low carbon ‘A’ rated properties, but also strives to make all new property developments go beyond the political rhetoric, thus building homes fit for 21st century living that address the concerns around the impact of carbon on the environment.
James forms part of the senior management team and has over 10 years of experience in the property industry specialising in land acquisitions and the sales & marketing of finished developments. Before joining Quantum James was a partner for one of the largest land & new homes agencies in the UK. James joined Quantum in 2015 to help drive the growth of the company and to successfully manage the developments currently under construction.
James’ extensive knowledge of the housing market allows him to quickly assess the right developments for Quantum, matching location and specification with the needs of the local market. When it comes to appraising land opportunities, James’ experience, contacts and the short management structure allow him to make a decision quickly.
