Qualifications and Skills

30+ years of experience in all aspects of the building process, covering domestic and commercial sectors; including key management roles, emphasising practical solutions to problem-solving. A dedicated results-driven team player who takes pride in a job well done.

Originally qualified as a Quantity Surveyor, I appreciate the dynamic nature of the building process. In an effort to help me understand the complexities and challenges in managing the built environment, I have acquired knowledge and expertise in:

  • Data acquisition
  • Data analysis
  • Change management
  • Health & Safety management
  • Building materials science
  • Technological innovation
  • Translating complex technical data for non-technical audiences
  • Implementing and managing training programmes

As advancements in technology have facilitated a safer and speedier workflow, I have adopted and promoted these technologies, where appropriate to be able to offer my clients the best-fit solution based on their individual needs.

With a focus on bespoke inspections and simplifying complex problems, my solutions provide safety, speed and cost savings; helping my clients adhere to regulations, be more profitable and turn projects around quickly.

Life outside of work is important too!

Motorcycles

Life in the fast lane

A life-long fan of all things mechanical and especially motorcycles. I have owned numerous motorcycles, from small mopeds to 2 litre Harley Davidsons. One of the highlights of my motorcycling life was a tour around the US on a Harley Davidson.

Fixing things as a hobby

Antique Gun restoration

This antique gun was broken into two pieces and had been treated poorly. I completed a full restoration of all wooden and metal parts while keeping as much of the original as possible. The finished article made a fine decorative piece which will continue to look good for decades to come.

My favourite form of horse power!

A life-long equestrian

Horses have always been a part of my life. Although I do not find as much opportunity to ride these days, I am still very passionate about horses, the sport and horsey life.
