"The key skill which Michael brings to projects is that of successfully coordinating the contractors’ teams and numerous subcontractors. He handles extremely effectively the relationships between the key players – the client, the architects, the specialist advisors (engineers, services, etc). He brings to this an even-handedness, and a balanced and clear-sighted assessment of the needs of the project."

"I have known Michael since 2002 and I have found him to be engaging, very knowledgeable and with complete integrity. He has bid for three projects with my College and won two. With the failed bid, he immediately engaged with me in detailed analysis as to why the bid failed and how future bids could be improved. I view his move into consultancy for clients as a most welcome development as there are very few people able to offer advice to clients that will – undoubtedly - be soundly-based, realistic and understandable. I can commend him to any client in the strongest possible terms."

"Over the last 10 years Kingerlee Construction have played an important role in completing the award winning building for OXCIS Limited. Through Michael’s personable and professional approach he drew confidence from client to deliver the project to the highest standard. Michael has maintained a senior client contact throughout the construction of the new facility providing valuable advice and feedback to the directors of OXCIS.
The project was of a unique character benefiting from fit-out elements from international sources, such as the Iznik Tiles from Turkey and the carved wood panelling from Malaysia and Oman. Michael’s enthusiasm for the project was essential to achieving its success."
