Construction Cost & Project Management

James Carnes


After graduating with a business degree from Manchester Metropolitan University in 2014 James travelled across Australia in a camper van, gaining work experience on a Queensland banana farm and various construction sites around Sydney. Returning to the UK after 3 years, he recently enrolled on a Masters in Estate Management through the University of Reading and will combine these studies with his role. James found that opportunity by engaging in a LinkedIn conversation with one of our surveyors (we admire people who are proactive!).

We know from his career history that James is an adventurous type and not afraid to take that first step. Unfortunately, he once fell short whilst attempting to leap across a Staffordshire canal. He assures us he is now more accurate when taking measurements!

Dream dinner companions include Sir David Attenborough and Conor McGregor, with steak & ale pie on the menu and a dose of Pulp Fiction to round off the evening once the guests have departed.

If work ever gets too stressful, a skiing holiday would be the ideal antidote.
