Me in a minute

I enjoy working with clients to develop workable solutions in order to overcome challenges.

Since undertaking a training seat within the construction practice area, I have enjoyed the tangible and practical nature of this work. The interplay between the practical, commercial, environmental and legal considerations present on every construction project fascinates me, and I enjoy working with clients to develop workable solutions in order to overcome challenges.

The team ethos on a construction project is exciting and I am always particularly keen to visit the sites of projects that I am working on both during the construction phase and after completion.
