A pragmatic and logical Director with 15 yrs of experience in Project Management. Focusing on Controls, Planning, Delivery and NEC Contracts
Honestly, I am inspired by Dad for when he founded his own consultancy business, growing it to be a global leader in it service offering, reaching many successes and business accolades. Coupled with my enthusiasm in leadership and management. Therefore, a career in Project Management was an ideal avenue for me.
Finished high school on a Wednesday and started an apprenticeship on the following Monday.
My initial years of the career was undertaken in IT support, where I completed my apprenticeship.
I then took the opportunity use my skills into a new direction as a Radio Technician, developing coverage maps for operators when planning infrastructure roll-outs of services such as 3G or local operators and blue light emergency services.
After a spell in the field, I took the opportunity place to be office based and design telecommunication sites for the UK operators infrastructure programmes. This later opened up an opportunity for me to move to a construction contractor who built telecommunications sites for UK operators and I managed several construction crews.
My next step was the career move which crafted my skills, it was my first position as a Project Manager at a consultancy in 2008, providing services to the Infrastructure sector (Rail, Rail Property, Highways, Civils Infrastructure, Gas, Telecommunications, Fire Engineering, Data Centres and Blue Light Emergency Services). Within this time, I developed Project and Programme Manager experiences capable of delivering projects of different scales, from medium sized up to major/complex projects.
In 2018, after leading and providing Project Management services within the consultancy, I took the role further, to develop other resources in Project Management within a service team and turning my career into management of a project management business, while maintaining Framework and Project Director roles on various contracts.
I recently undertook the role of Project Manager for one our clients to deliver the development of a new site on the Manchester Ship Canal in Salford for use as an intermodal container port facility served directly by a new rail link and connected to road access.
Procured via an NEC3 ECC contract, I was the NEC ECC Project Manager for the works. The scope of the individual phases is generally as follows:
Phase 1 – Enabling Works
- Rail link design to Governance for Railway Investment Projects (GRIP) 3
- Port access road & drainage
- Salteye Brook diversion
- Utilities diversions
Family time is vital, my lifeline, I look forward to plenty of family holidays with the sun shining down, lots of adventures and plenty of refreshments on hand!!
I always factor in time to shout at the TV while watching sports, mainly following Manchester United, Minnesota Vikings and the England Cricket teams.
I love getting outdoors as much as possible also, whether that’s walking, cycling or my main hobby fishing.
Who doesn’t like to party!!
After winning the lottery.., and being based on Mars in a crater engineered villa with pool, I’ll be providing leadership to BWB to further enhance their excellence in the management of projects internationally.., intergalactic!??
