Following the completion of a Construction Management degree joined Mace in September 2011 as part of their management training scheme. Combining the experience gained working as a site operative during studies with the knowledge from my degree course I have consistently thrived under pressure and developed throughout the scheme into a well-rounded manager with a good understanding of the whole construction process including financial, programming, logistical, health and safety, sustainability, environmental and build-ability implications. At Mace there have been opportunities to get involved and take responsibility for all aspects of construction management, first in the successful delivery of a £20million student accommodation project and from October 2012 on a £60million mixed use development due to complete in the summer of 2014. These projects have given experience in managing demolition, groundworks, concrete and steel frame construction, utilities, external landscaping, cladding, brickwork, scaffold and internal contractors on busy central London projects whilst dealing with testing logistical constraints, tight programmes, party wall issues and neighbours sensitive to construction activities. Following completion of the Mace management scheme at the beginning of 2014 I am looking forward to continuing my professional development whilst taking lead responsibility for areas as a construction manager and working as part of a driven team to successfully deliver challenging building projects.
Assistant Construction Manager @ Commenced work on the Mace City University design and build project in Barbican in October 2012. A mixed use development comprising of two reinforced concrete frame blocks encompassing 805 student units and a steel frame block containing a sports hall, gym, educational classrooms and office space. From October 2012 until December 2013 managed a variety of packages including demolition of existing structures, removal and termination of existing services, piling and sub-structure works, RC frame including basement works, steel frame and decking works plus interfaces between these and other trades. In January 2014 upon completion of the RC frame moved to the internals team to drive completion of 262 student units which were failing on the projects programme. Packages managed on site include dry-lining, under floor heating, carpentry, plastering, floor finishes, decorations, M&E works and FF&E deliveries. By identifying priorities and focusing heavily on producing short term programmes including milestones for all trades involved in the sequence of works, taking control of logistics within the block and forming strong working relationships with sub-contractor management a number of weeks have been pulled back on the programme. All units are now on target for successful handover to the client by PC at the end of August. Commenced works on the 400 unit student accommodation development Isledon Road in September 2011. Roles included supporting the projects senior construction manager in the erection of the RC frame until its successful conclusion, topping out a month ahead of programme. Upon completion of the RC frame was re-directed to the management of cladding/ curtain walling and the associated scaffold strike, driving the latter to successful completion ahead of PC. During this period experience was also gained in the management of brickwork, utilities and external landscaping. From September 2011 to Present Construction Site Operative @ Valuable experience to on site works from an operative’s perspective. As a manager this period working as a labourer enables me to consider site works and how they challenge those charged with undertaking the day to day operations that really drive progression of a build. From November 2010 to August 2011 General Site Operative @ From September 2010 to October 2010 Placement Student @ From April 2008 to April 2008
