His passion for the built environment and construction project management saw him achieve a BSc (Hons) in Construction Management in 2013. He went on to attain his MSc (Construction Management) Cum Laude and become registered as a Professional Construction Project Manager in South Africa.
Since then Mark has worked in a variety of roles, managing small to large scale residential developments from both a contractor’s and developer’s perspective. He has been involved in all aspects of the construction process for mid to high income residential developments and large scale retirement villages. He has also worked on the acquisition of new projects, conducting feasibility and viability studies to ensure they meet client objectives, and has provided project management services for multiple projects across South Africa.
Mark has significant experience in health and safety, legislative compliance and implementing risk management, quality management and change management strategies. Being involved in the daily site management of large scale projects has given him an understanding of technical construction methodologies and how to appropriately allocate resources and durations to project programmes.
Throughout his career, Mark has stayed abreast of current industry advancements – completing professional development programmes, mentoring graduates, publishing a number of research papers, and working as a part-time lecturer and post-graduate research supervisor.
Mark’s calm demeanour, interpersonal skills and organisational abilities have seen him successfully deliver projects on time, within the agreed budget and to a high standard.
