Currently based in Abu Dhabi working as a Project Manager with iTech Management Consultancy since January 2014. The role involves management of large teams of Architects and Engineers in the production of BIM models for all disciplines on a number of large projects in the gulf region. I take a key role in the Architectural department in working with my associates to find probable design and construction issues and propose feasible solutions to the designers for approval.
Prior to relocating to Abu Dhabi I spent approximately three and a half years in Toronto employed as a Design Manager with WZMH Architects. In this challenging role I worked on a number of large projects at various different stages in their development and construction. With WZMH as Prime Consultants on a large number of high profile projects in Canada and abroad, I had to assume responsibility for the companies and clients’ interests while maintaining working relationships with contractors and construction managers to ensure a quality delivery of projects in time and on budget. I believe my WZMH experience greatly enhanced my abilities and attributes to deal with Sub-Consultants, General Contractors, Construction Managers and client groups demanding the highest standards and value for money.
Early in my career I worked in Dublin, Ireland with Fitzgerald Kavanagh and Partners for just under four years before moving to Atkins in order to work on larger higher profile projects. While with Atkins I was based between Ireland and Bahrain, working on high profile projects in both countries. With these companies I gained approximately seven years of valuable experience in managing, coordinating and delivering design & tender/construction packages which then led me to taking sole responsibility for a number of site based projects. This experience gave me the ability to become involved in projects from conception stage all the way to construction completion.
