In some capacity I have been working within the construction industry for around 12 years. Throughout my school, college and indeed university years I would work on site with my Father's business, including general labouring, but additionally administrative task such as compiling quotations and invoices and maintaining a website.
Throughout my academic years I studied design courses which were broad in their content. During a placement year I worked for a company that provide a full turn-key design and build solution in the commercial foodservice sector. My role developed within the company, but I gained experience of working and eventually running a drawing office and then subsequently working as a project manager for a variety of projects across the UK.
This led me to working for a main contractor, initially through a graduate scheme but later moving on to work as a Design Manager. I have been involved with a number of projects within central London and have gained experience in working on fast-paced challenging projects.
My Skills & Qualifications
Design can usually involve spending a lot of time indoors, or in front of a computer. It's hard to get away from that, so when I close my laptop lid for the day I usually like to go and do something active. Below are some of the things I enjoy when i'm not working;
- BA (Hons) Industrial Design
- HNC Construction
- Experienced AutoCAD user
- BRE Associate
