Our Directors create the platform for the team to thrive, get to know them:

Jim Adams - Director

What strengths do you bring to the team?

There is nothing I have not been exposed to in terms of design, build or eventually demolition, which ultimately means I can deliver solutions or solicit the best solutions from internal or external project design teams. In such a diverse and gratifying 30 year plus career, where I have developed and sold engineering businesses, built successful teams and designed across the full range of civil and structural forms, including steel, concrete, timber and hybrid in all sectors… be it new builds, refurbishment or restoration projects… it may sound like a cliché, but it simply boils down to the experience I bring. 

What does the word Client mean to you?

Opportunity to service, lifelong partnership, benefits from mutual association 

What do you enjoy most about what you do?

Satisfaction of jobs going out the door properly designed and detailed, and just the sense of contribution we make through being able to see a finished development. I simply enjoy working with people, be they staff or clients. 

What is your favourite quote?

“The harder I work; The luckier I get”  - Unknown.

What is your biggest lesson in Business?

Focus your efforts on living up to your commitments, especially on time scales.

 

 

David Irvine - Director

What strengths do you bring to the team?

Working in main stream consulting Engineering since the late 70’s – the last 30 years at Senior level on a variety of prestigious projects in various locations throughout the UK – including 10 years based in London, and on projects overseas including UAE, Egypt and South East Africa… Having also built, managed and sold structural engineering businesses, worked at Director level to guide projects in all sectors, and develop people of all skill levels, I believe my strengths are apparent in my experience, but more than that it is about my ability to build positive progressive relationships.

What does the word Client mean to you?

Understanding their needs = Providing a quality service = Retention and life time value  

What do you enjoy most about what you do?

The truth is I still get a kick out of designing and being involved in creating buildings.

Seeing my colleagues develop, so they can similarly enjoy the challenges of structural design.

What is your biggest lesson in Business?

You assume communication is simple, in fact it needs a lot of awareness, resilience and skill
