“I am very proud of the progression paths that we have in place, we have worked hard to ensure we have the correct blend of experience and youth, so that fresh ideas can be supported and developed against tried and tested methods. Matthew is someone who has benefitted from this approach. He is committed and passionate and I am pleased he accepted the position as design manager.

“Likewise, Ken has the vision and experience to strengthen the mechanical and electrical building services division and is ideally placed to drive his team forward.

“The lifeblood to any business is its people and as well as creating progression paths and developing a mentoring structure, we have also brought in external experts to deliver employee workshops to inspire, engage and optimise our teams.”
