With over 20 years of extensive experience in cost management across various sectors such as health, local government, education, and residential, I bring a wealth of expertise as a highly skilled Chartered Quantity Surveyor. Recently, I made the decision to transition from my role as the UK Cost Management Lead for Health at Arcadis to join the dynamic team at Hive Projects.

In the construction industry, there are several notable challenges that have emerged as a result of the unprecedented economic slowdown experienced in 2021 and 2022. This slowdown was primarily driven by the combined impacts of Brexit, the COVID-19 pandemic, and the Ukraine war. As a consequence, there has been a substantial increase in construction prices, leading to a hyperinflationary environment.

However, despite these difficulties, it is essential for us to adapt and find innovative solutions to address these ongoing issues. By actively addressing the impacts of the economic slowdown and exploring strategies to mitigate the adverse effects, we can strive to restore construction output levels and enhance the sector’s overall viability.

I am a passionate advocate for grassroots football, especially when it comes to children of all ages. Being a proud father of two sons who actively participate in football, I contribute to our local clubs by offering my assistance on match days and during training sessions. Additionally, I make sure to attend club fundraising events to show my support.
