As a partner in the Commercial and Infrastructure department, I lead Bevan Brittan’s housing group. I concentrate on procurement strategy and the practicalities of scheme implementation together with advisory work and project management. My work encompasses construction contracts, consultant appointments, security documentation, framework and term contracts, development agreements and other forms of contractual joint venture documentation.
I specialise in arrangements for new build and refurbishment works for regeneration, mixed-use, housing and office developments, contractual joint venture and documentation. I also advise procuring authorities, funders and contractors who work alongside or within the housing sector.
Through working with clients at the interface of the public and private sectors, I have amassed a great deal of experience in advising authorities on how to get the best out of the competitive dialogue procurement process. I also have unique expertise in guiding bidders on how to maximise their chance of success through the adoption of the most appropriate bid strategy.
I have contributed articles to Inside Housing and The Municipal Journal.
