The longest serving member of the crew. Alex is still motivated to come in each day to design, detail, produce specifications and negotiate with Planners and Building Inspectors. A keen runner, Alex can be found running at unreasonable hours of the morning disturbing the deer in Bradgate Park, guided only by his head torch. He can also be relied on to make coffee at dangerous strengths.

The people I work with. They are so passionate about their work, and creating the right environment for our clients.'
