Glen joined Projex in 2012 as an honours graduated from Northumbria University to strengthen the building surveying consultancy team. He has already gained invaluable experience in both public and private sector projects, providing contract administration advice for the refurbishment of Swallow House and Victoria Square in Birmingham, as well as working on various dilapidation projects across the UK. A twelve month placement with Darlington Borough Council saw him deliver key building surveying and project management solutions in the Council’s redevelopment programme of school buildings. His drive and determination enabled him to play an important role in the successful completion and reinstatement works to Alpha Hospitals, Forestwood, which achieved practical completion 3-4 months sooner than many, including the insurers, thought possible!
