Working with architects, urban designers, landscape architects & building engineers, for a mixture of public & private clients, your major focus will be on engaging with a new client list.

A large portion of your time will be non-billing, providing ample time to maintain focus on new project winning, with others ensuring a correct focus on current project delivery.
