Alan F. J. Crookes

On completing college, I joined Costains as a management trainee and later left for overseas for 10 years, mostly with Balfour Beatty on multi million pound contracts in West Africa.

I have successfully completed projects on time and within budget, working on a self employed contract arrangement and as a Building Contractor.

I have experience in most types of construction and design as a Building Manager and always ensure the client, progress and quality remain the foremost, when carrying out my duties. Including taking off materials and placing orders for both suppliers and sub-contractors, correspondence with the client, consultants etc and the Management of Health and Safety.
