The value of these projects ranges from £5,000 to £5,000,000 and each one receives the same dedication and commitment to meeting quality, programme and budget targets.
My work covers commercial interior fit outs, shopfitting schemes, office reorganisations, workplace studies, measured building surveys and coordinating furniture installations.
In the last decade I have held two directorships for different companies, running my own teams with responsibility for procurement strategy, health and safety, profitability, quality (ISO 9001) and meeting programme.
I am accustomed to nationwide framework agreements and running multiple contracts and have managed large roll-outs for Boots, RBS, Adecco, Specialized and The Original Factory Shop.
My main drivers are to ensure complete customer satisfaction and achieve good profit for my clients.
Area Covered: UK wide
Summary: My background, spanning 24 years, is in the coordination of commercial interior fit outs, shopfitting schemes and furniture installations. I am a proven manager and have run my own teams whilst simultaneously managing my own projects. My responsibilities typically cover tendering, procurement strategy, appointing subcontractors, manpower selection, health and safety, profitability, quality(ISO 9001) and meeting programme.
I am accustomed to managing multiple contracts and am familiar with the complete project management process, from site survey to final account. I have managed large roll-outs for RBS, Boots, Adecco, Specialized and The Original Factory Shop and have been responsible for all commercial and operational aspects of business in my previous roles.
My previous employments as Commercial Contracts Manager and Director have given me an excellent foundation to fulfil the demands of most projects. I have worked for joinery manufacturers, shopfitters and 'design and build' office contractors and believe my experience of working in customer facing roles, which combine methodical thinking with a hunger for making money, gives me a significant advantage.

Summary: I always wanted to be an architect and so tailored my O Levels and then my A Levels to reach my goal. I made it to my favoured University of Liverpool in 1989 and graduated 3 years later amidst the recession of the early 90's. With the building industry heavily affected, jobs in architecture were hard to come by, so I missed my placement year and found work in facilities management. The 24 years that followed saw me progress to run some fantastic high-end projects all over the country, including No10 Downing Street. I have never looked back and my career continues to go from strength to strength.
