David Gates

Construction Director

Bio

David is our construction expert. There’s not much he doesn’t know about building new homes or converting existing buildings. David has a wealth of experience in the Construction Sector having headed up the Property Department of Blockbuster Video for 16 years. David not only manages the projects where we were appointed as Designer and Project Manager but also advises the Design Team on project values and construction costs during that critical option design phase. When David is acting as Project Manager on a particular project he runs a tight ship ensuring that the builders are completing the construction phase to the highest standard possible. Even before it gets to that stage, David is extensively involved in the tender phase. That’s when it’s critical to get accurate pricing and to analyse the builders quotations in detail, ensuring nothing is missed or left to chance which means that his projects rarely go over budget. Due to David’s wealth of experience, he is also very involved with the business at a more senior level and will often advise on strategy for some of our larger projects.
