Roles at ADEPT
I am the managing director of Adept and a Chartered Civil and Structural Engineer with over 20 years experience. I like to be involved hands on with projects I am responsible for. I am skilled in the design and project management of multi-storey buildings, large warehouses and major refurbishments. I specialise in BIM solutions, steel and reinforced concrete construction in addition to feasibility studies. I recently completed the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses programme and I'm also an Apprenticeship Ambassador. I ensure that clients are satisfied with our service and are provided the best solution on a project. I am instrumental in the strategic decisions Adept takes, which includes embracing BIM in 2008, targeting business development for growth, and deciding on our focus on new sectors, technologies and international markets.
When not working
I am married and have a teenage son with whom we enjoy going mountain biking, skiing and scuba diving whenever we get the chance. Recent times have been quite hectic with a grand designs type of self build project for our new house. I have been labouring over the weekends, carrying out various construction activities which has been very satisfying and given me a good insight in to non structural aspects of construction and project management. I enjoy learning new skills and researching in detail both technical and non technical subjects, studying French and reading. I am a keen traveller and try and link my hobbies wherever I can with my travels.
