John is a Chartered Civil Engineer and member of the British Tunnel Society with over 35 years industry experience and joins C2V+ after six years working on Thames Water projects for CH2M. John has extensive experience in the project management and contract administration of large multi-disciplinary projects and framework contracts, giving him first-hand experience of collaborative working. In particular, he has a strong track record in the water, tunnelling and highways sectors.
