Paul Ashmore, Pre Contracts Manager
My role within the company involves various aspects of support throughout every stage of the pre and post delivery process.
I am currently taking a MSC in Quantity Surveying and commercial management which helps me in providing vital cost, research and contract administration support. In addition I am responsible for furniture assessment and procurement in addition to business development and bid support. Previous to joining the company in 2010 I have gained considerable experience in the commercial market from concept through to pre start meetings working for both local and national companies.
I also have a degree in marketing which aids the company in communicating our values and gaining reassurance of our clients. I would describe myself as a personable, outgoing and hardworking individual who enjoys being involved with every aspect of the business in order to support the continued growth of the company.
