Most memorable or unusual jobs to date: “While running a site for Barratt Homes, the job fell behind schedule due to unforeseen circumstances. I was able to mobilise a dedicated team and initiate a 16-week program consisting of 7-day work weeks and 15-hour days. This strategy brought the project back online and we were able to meet all deadlines, which proves that good planning and hard work can achieve anything. A philosophy I carry with me at all times.”
