Professional Summary

As a leading cost consultant in the EMEA region,I help to shape design solutions by maximising value to clients and protecting their commercial interests. 

I have worked as a cost consultant in London since 2000, initially working for Gardiner & Theobald for three years on a number of new build commercial office developments.  Upon joining Turner & Townsend in 2004 I primarily worked on cultural sector projects such as Darwin Centre Phase 2 at Natural History Museum and the refurbishment of Tate Britain.  Since 2010 I have specialised in interior fit out.  I joined the Colliers team in August 2019 to help lead our Cost Management offer.


Led the development of the global interior fit out benchmarking platform for Turner & Townsend.

Led a task team to develop a cost management methodology mapped against RIBA work stages. This includes writing procedures and producing templates for use on the company’s global extranet.

Authored Turner & Townsend’s London fit out market update, presenting at a number of client forums.
