Having joined the company in 2010 as a site manager, Hugh progressed through the construction team, delivering several ‘bulge’ classroom frameworks. Having gained experience on site, Hugh moved into the commercial department, which led to him enrolling in university whilst working at Darwin Group and obtaining a first class honours degree in quantity surveying and commercial management. Hugh has progressed through the company to commercial director, obtaining experience in traditional and offsite construction, and has been involved in delivering many Darwin Group projects around the country.
“My proudest moment was when I handed over my first two buildings of a bulge classroom framework contract within an eight-week programme. I was honoured to have been given the opportunity and responsibility for completing the two classroom blocks, and I will always remember how happy and amazed the client was on walking into their new building.”
