Martin has worked in the construction industry for over 30 years, delivering projects within the residential, hotel/ leisure, commercial, rail/infrastructure, mixed-use/retail and government sectors. He started his career with Laing O’Rourke Civil Engineering in 1984 as a carpenter and soon progressed through the ranks to construction manager – a role he held for 16 years, working on many of the company’s most prestigious contracts throughout the UK.

In 2002, he was promoted to Operations and Labour Relations Director. During his career, Martin has gained a wealth of knowledge in smart build techniques, including slip form and jump form core construction, bulk earthworks, basement construction (including top-down), facade retention, high- rise structures, sub and superstructure works (post-tension and traditional reinforced) and precast concrete frames.

Strongly committed to staff training and development, he mentors up and coming staff and also leads the company’s Apprentice+ scheme.
