Phil Coyle


Senior Project Manager

After finishing up my Building Surveying degree at the University of Central Lancashire, I dove into the practical side, focusing on stock condition surveys predominantly. Feeling the itch for some adventure at that point in my life, I seized the opportunity of a stint in the Royal Navy. It was an incredible journey, (pun intended!) providing not only travel opportunities but also a chance to fine-tune my leadership and management skills.

Upon returning to solid ground, I achieved my chartership. That was some years ago now, and I’ve successfully completed an array of projects within demanding and high-security settings. My experience spans across Higher Education, healthcare, commercial ventures, housing, heritage, and hotels. One standout project was the exhibition fit out works during the extension of the University of Manchester’s John Rylands Library – a truly memorable scheme for me, personally.

When away from work, I enjoy watersports when the weather is favourable, including paddleboarding and dingy sailing.  When not getting wet, family activities, DIY and travel fill up the other precious spare time.

What struck me about Hive, and what I find truly unique, is their team spirit. It’s no small feat to have such a tight-knit community when projects span large areas of the UK, and the team is wonderfully diverse. Yet, from day one, I could sense the genuine connection and engagement among the team members, and that’s what really drew me in.
