Robin initially qualified as a civil engineer and after early work as a site engineer his career (spanning more than 45 years) was spent entirely in commercial management for main stream civil engineering contractors John Howard and Edmund Nuttall. He is a Past President of CICES and more recently he took the role of CICES Director of Training.
During his contracting career Robin was involved with the measurement and contractual and financial management of some 150 civil engineering projects. Latterly as Divisional Commercial Manager (wiith a staff of some 19 QSs) he was responsible for commercial and contractual support on projects with an annual turnover approaching £100m, including the control and management of all associated dispute resolution.
Robin's knowledge of construction site operations, their management from a commercial viewpoint, and their relationship to the prosecution and resolution of claims and disputes, is exemplary. The experience and expertise which he can bring to bear in researching and assessing the merits of a party's case are considerable and his advice can be invaluable. Based upon this advice decisions may be more confidently taken on how to proceed. He will also provide input into the preparation of the ensuing case and the conduct of any subsequent negotiations.
