Keith qualified to become a Chartered Quantity Surveyor in 1978, having gained a Diploma in Quantity Surveying at the Polytechnic of the South Bank by way of a 6-year part-time course, whilst employed at British Railways. During his time at British Railways, Keith gained experience in major building and civil engineering infrastructure projects, which he took to the British Airports Authority during a period of major expansion at Heathrow, Gatwick and Stansted Airports.
Keith subsequently worked in private practice with his own business up until 1996 when he joined a consultancy that specialised in providing claim and dispute resolution services. He initially worked in the Far East, on major infrastructure in Hong Kong and Malaysia.
From 2005 to the present, Keith has worked in bespoke dispute resolution teams within companies that provide construction consultancy services, including quantity surveying. During this time, he has been commissioned to give an independent opinion on a wide range of quantity surveying issues that have arisen prior to and during the various processes of construction that are unique to each of the sectors.
In particular, Keith has worked on major infrastructure projects, including railways, airports, power facilities and prestigious projects, including high value residential and superyachts.
