Career Highlights

I’m always proud to complete a project on time and handing over a high quality building to delighted clients and end-users. I always take extra pride in the school projects I’ve built as their adding a huge benefit to the community. I’m particularly proud of the Jaguar Land Rover project I managed at Staples Corner. The project was extremely complicated and was specified to a high level of quality. I’ll never forget Prime Minister, at the time, David Cameron opening Science College block in Chipping Norton.
