Steve is a Chartered Quantity Surveyor who, over 20 years, has worked on major construction projects in the UK, Middle East and South East Asia.

His core expertise is in commercial management of large complex projects. With extensive experience in a career managing over 300 major and minor construction contracts, he specializes in quantum claims and dispute resolution.

Steve has played a key role in the settlement of large value construction disputes on many occasions. This experience includes claims involving delay and prolongation, acceleration, disruption, insurance and termination, as well as variation claims. He is able to apply a deep understanding of legal principles to the construction process, applying a skillful combination of event identification, cause and effect narrative, together with sound objective reasoning, to demonstrate entitlement and liability.

He is experienced in producing claim submittal and rebuttal documentation and has represented both contractors and employers. His unique perspectives are therefore highly valued by a range of clients providing them with the necessary support and insight to address uncertainties in the dispute resolution process.

Steve also has worked across multiple sectors, including hotels, commercial real estate, process plants and industrial units, infrastructure and civil works, in addition to utilities and airports.
