In Previous Lives

Guy qualified as a Civil Engineer in New Zealand practicing in Wellington for a large consultancy before heading to the UK. Once in London he made the switch to Project Management and spent 7 years working predominantly in Transport Infrastructure and Urban Revitalisation for Transport for London, a subsidiary of the Greater London Council responsible for the transport network in the region.  As all good Kiwi's do, he married a Canterbury girl and returned back home in 2012.

Client Projects

London Inner Orbital - Bounds Green

The Bounds Green carriage way project was an initiative to support improved access into London from the North East.  The 5km dual carriageway through urban areas got off to a troubled start and when the project management team was replaced Guy was one of four who took over the project.  At that stage the project was 12 months behind schedule. Extensive value management and work with contractors and stakeholders resulted in the carriageway being delivered on time as part of the improved network of transport to facilitate Olympic transportation with minimal disruption to traffic flows during the construction.

Gants Hill Town Centre

The Gants Hill Town Centre project was an urban revitalisation and transport project.  Intended to create a more attractive hub to this area of London and upgrade access to the local tube station, the project was a Mayoral Fund initiative.

Deliverables achieved included increased green space, a "European-style" café environment combined with improved traffic flows and greater safety and ease of access for users of the underground station.  The enhanced amenity value has resulted in increased patronage by the local community and increased economic activity from local retail and entertainment enterprise.

Why I Love What I Do

Guy enjoys maximising the value from a project whether that is through cost management, stakeholder management or delivering increased amenity.  He's interested in the unique aspects of projects and seeing the change it can deliver.

"Taking a difficult situation, assessing all the information and making the right decision to keep the project moving, on track and delivering against the clients expectations is especially satisfying."
