Mike, from Billingham in Cleveland, worked for Faithful+Gould for ten years before moving to Turner & Townsend in Leeds in February. After only 3 months in Leeds, he rejoined Faithful+Gould recognising the benefits of the wide range of potential projects and varied work in the civil and engineering sectors handled by Faithful+Gould.
Mike’s new role at Faithful+Gould is primarily providing procurement support and contractual advice to clients within the utilities and oil and gas industries or cost management of major projects.
During his 30 year career, Mike, a fully qualified quantity surveyor, has gained significant practical experience of the implementation and administration of partnering projects, reimbursable cost target contracts, value engineering, risk evaluation and risk management.
Currently, Mike is working on a Kuwait Petroleum project, where he is reviewing the change control procedures and a claim on a contract worth circa €12,775,000. He is also involved on a £5 million project where the Faithful+Gould team will be developing a procurement strategy which provides value for the client, Yorwaste Ltd.
Mike said, "I have always enjoyed working for Faithful+Gould, and when I left I immediately realised I missed the variety of clients and projects which F&G deal with. The diversity of commissions which Faithful+Gould are awarded ensures that work remains stimulating and challenging while there is great scope for career development. The projects I am currently working on display the wide range of professional services we undertake at Faithful+Gould and I’m looking forward to working on an impressive range of local, national and international projects".
Commenting on this appointment, George Murray, director at the Teesside office, added: "We are delighted to welcome back Mike to our team. He is a dedicated person, a true asset to the firm bringing with him many years of experience in the field".
