Neil joined the business in 1994 upon graduating from university and after a successful industrial placement with the company. He progressed from Site Engineer through the Engineering structure, spending a year seconded to our in house temporary works department, into project management and then into functional technical lead within the Infrastructure business, a role he held for eight years before returning to Expanded as operations manager in 2014, where he is currently responsible for delivering a £120m portfolio of contracts.

Neil brings to the role a wealth of specialist technical knowledge on deep basements and high-rise concrete frames, as well as problem-solving ability developed over 20 years within the construction industry. He is committed to progressing our engineering background and developing the 200 engineers within his function to become members of the Institution of Civil Engineers and also to identify and develop suitable undergraduates through the Laing O’Rourke scholarship scheme.
