  • Ability to read, absorb and visualise information from drawings and text and convert this into a robust vision for construction.
  • A communicator who can motivate ancillary staff who produce 3D models and ‘cartoon’ sketches, so that our proposals are set before the client using visual aids as well as text. Constructive communication with Estimators is also important.
