Over the years I have been a Contracts manager for the countries largest swimming pool company whereby I designed the pools & filtration systems, project managed and worked alongside our build & plumbing teams to ensure the client’s needs & requirements were met. I looked after our key clients such as David Lloyd & Virgin.
After several years of working within the Swimming pool industry, I then moved to Willmott Dixon’s, one of the larger main contracting companies with a turnover in excess of £1billion. During this time, I became the project manager (eventually progressing to Snr PM) for the construction of several new school buildings in the Northwest of England. With these projects, I was nominated for and won 3 highly prestigious national awards.
Several years ago, an opportunity arose for me to work in the middle east, so as a family we moved to Dubai and spent 2 years in the sunshine! During our time in Dubai, I was employed to run a multi-million pound 6* Development Project for the construction of The Yas Marina Hotel on the F1 race track.
Upon our return to the UK, we decided to go it alone startup for ourselves and here we are today...
Our original concept was to purchase and renovate properties with a view to selling them on, hence the name Benthom Developments. However; halfway through the first development I was approached to price and consequently build an extension for some friends to their stone cottage.
I pride myself on my approach to clients needs, requirements and the quality product I produce and as such, all my work comes via clients recommendations.
