Iain joined the company in the summer of 1987 as a Graduate Quantity Surveyor working his way up through the company and becoming a Director in April 2001. He has provided the company with technical leadership and direction, working on several of our most prestigious projects and supporting some of our largest clients within the Public and Private sectors.
