Emergency services were called to the 700 acre Alconbury Weald site on Wednesday afternoon.
A spokesman for Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue Service told The Hunts Post: “At 1.34pm on Wednesday two crews from Huntingdon and one crew from St Neots were called to a building site on Bedell Road, Alconbury Weald.
“Crews arrived to find a casualty trapped on the second floor of a building under construction.
“The casualty was released by firefighters and handed over to ambulance crews. Sadly the casualty was pronounced dead at the scene.”
A Crest Nicholson spokesman said:”We can confirm that an incident took place on 30th October onsite at our Alconbury Weald development in Huntingdon which has unfortunately resulted in a fatality of a subcontractor.
“We are fully cooperating with the local authorities and Health & Safety Executive to assist their investigation.
“We are doing everything we can to help at this difficult time and our immediate concern is the welfare of those involved and impacted by this incident.
“It would be inappropriate to comment further at this time.”
