With over 30 years in the construction industry, Paul started his career on the tools, consulting in the contaminated land sector, Estimating and Project Management.

Projects have ranged in size from $1m to $210m with multifaceted layers to a lot of the projects. Paul also has experience in the transitional cohabitation between ongoing construction and onboarding of operations particularly in the hotel sector, this requires an extraordinary amount of communication and coordination to allow construction to continue while allowing operations to continue. Paul is a big believer in two factors starting out, communication and transparency, without those aspects instilled in the project team from day one the project will inevitably hit many speed bumps along the way, most of which could be avoided when everyone on the team is open and honest, from this approach this also establishes a good relationship between the project team. Leading on from that is attention to detail, again from conception, during the course of construction to the deficiency program and ultimately handing over a building everyone is proud to be a part of.
