With a proven commercial track record of over 30 years and broad civil engineering experience with a specialism in the Rail Sector predominantly with Network Rail and London Underground, I offer superior knowledge of all contracting processes which enables opportunities to be quickly converted to profitable projects.

Using a full range of traditional competitive tendering processes, and single source negotiations coupled with my significant knowledge and experience of cost planning, procurement, cost management and project management systems I ensure our reports are always focused on business strategies and objectives.

Working under a variety of contracts I have built commercial teams to manage both projects and frameworks that successfully achieve targets in pressurised situations. With a good eye for detail, I set high standards and expect this to be reflected by our team.
