His detailed experience includes new build industrial, retail and residential, hotel, restaurant and hospital refurbishment, office fit-out, water defence systems and heavy civil engineering, working under all major forms of contract. Jim’s work has been located across the world resulting in exposure to all forms of contracts in most sectors.

In his spare time Jim’s hobbies involve being a keen road cyclist, runner and skier, as well as a regular visitor to the Emirates stadium in North London. Apart from the latter activity, Jim’s 2 grown up daughters share his hobbies and regularly join him when out on the road or mountain.
“From being in consultancy for over 30 years I have learned that to provide the best service to a client you have to demonstrate the most professional cohesive approach, from the management of a business through to the consultants delivering the service. ”
