I have an excellent understanding of client/contractor/sub-contractor relationships and the potential pitfalls that can arise on an international project.

I have a strong personal safety ethic which I try to impart to my peers & those under my direct management by committing me to maintaining a safety process which actively involves all employees in identifying, preventing, and correcting any & all workplace safety issues in order to reduce any potential accidents and injuries.

My experience to date of working on mostly large scale construction projects has allowed me to excel in problem solving within the IFM and welfare sectors resulting in more streamlined and cost effective operations.
