Colin is a Chartered Quantity Surveyor having graduated from Glasgow Caledonian University in 1994 and attained his professional accreditation prior to becoming a Partner in the Practice in 2007.

His varied experience at Armours extends some 32 years since joining in 1989 and working through the ranks to his current position as the Partner in charge of our Kilmarnock office from where he manages the delivery of our Quantity Surveying, Project Management and Practice wide CDM services throughout the UK.

Colin believes in retaining very close contact with his Clients and has a very hands-on approach at both Strategic and Project levels. He has become particularly experienced in the delivery of complex projects within the Healthcare, Education, Financial Retail, Sport & Leisure, Community, and Social Housing sectors and continues to manage multiple Framework commissions for both Private and Public Sector Clients.

Colin has also been successful in the delivery of large-scale roll-out programmes and continues to be flexible in his approach to procurement routes, contractual arrangements, risk management and funding mechanisms to best suit the sometimes challenging nature of the modern development. He is committed to maximising value and sustainability within all of his projects, whilst reducing revenue costs, and advocates a collaborative working environment for best results.

Having been a product of the system himself, Colin is enthusiastic about our Apprenticeship programme and thoroughly supports the mentoring and training infrastructure we have in place to develop our young professionals and maximise their potential.
