Dan joined TFT in 1996 and has been a partner for 12 years. He specialises in project management and employer’s agent services. He set up TFT’s specialist project consultancy service line in 2006 and now leads the development and project consultancy group of services within the business. Dan has more recently been responsible for starting up TFT’s development management consultancy, cost consultancy and rights of light services.
Alongside managing this group, Dan is a hands-on jobbing project manager, with particular expertise in delivering difficult value-add or technically-challenging commercial and residential projects.
I am an extremely passionate, hands-on project manager. Alongside my formal training, throughout my career, I have called on sayings from my mentor David Tuffin, such as “if it can go wrong it will go wrong”. I go to great lengths to see where the gaps are in a project and make sure there are measures in place to fill them. I am extremely proud to manage a number of project-management frameworks for top property investment clients such as Aviva Investors, Crown Estate (St James’s), Land Securities and Grosvenor.
Managing projects can be full on and I get my time to think at weekends, when I more or less live in Richmond Park. I am married with kids and a dog (an adorable Cavalier King Charles spaniel) and all of us are always in and out of the park on long walks, running (just me and the dog) or cycling (just me!).
After three years, we are finally finishing refurbishment of our money pit (AKA house). We love to have friends and family to stay or over for dinner. I do the cooking (my signature dish is Paella) and I like to slide the door across the lounge and kitchen, so I can listen to music while I cook.
