I have many favourite projects, from large commercial schemes (Nobel House and Whitehall Place in London, Foss and Mallard House in York), various housing projects (88 St James’s Street, Nine Elms), living and working complexes in Saudi Arabia and Iraq, Abu Dhabi Airport and Rolls-Royce Aviation, plus marine and nuclear facilities including the Apprentice Academy.

I am a firm advocate of being personable, proactive and diligent. I pride myself in enabling my clients to make informed decisions on their projects, which brings a common understanding to the project and its key drivers. I have a real passion for the construction industry and even spend some of my free time reading journals and magazines or watching programmes on construction. I have an in-depth knowledge of buildings and their components, which I believe stems from my parents undertaking building works while I was growing up.

I am a BIG Peterborough United fan, as this is my home city. We have been through many ups and downs with them and where would we be without Barry Fry! I also enjoy playing and watching football, golf, car racing and fishing. I now have a young family and I am enjoying the thrills and lots of spills of fatherhood!
