Daniel Redmond, Director of Project and Cost Management
My first 100 days at Aberley: Daniel Redmond
Monday 3 December, 2018
Following IDC joining Aberley in July 2018 we caught up with the Director of Project and Cost Management, Daniel Redmond, to find out about his first 100 days.
How have you settled in to Aberley?
The transition into the Aberley team has not been without its challenges, however overall it is proving to have been the right move. I have known Meirion Anderson, CEO at Aberley, for many years calling upon his expertise in workplace consultancy to support our clients where we were acting as Project and Cost Managers. Joining forces felt like the right move from the first conversation. Over the first 100 days at Aberley it has proven to be a great move and I’m feeling very at home in the Aberley team.
How have you found working with the Aberley team?
The transition has been helped by the whole team at Aberley they’ve supported the IDC team and helped with the change , it is nice that the workplace culture of Aberley is very similar to what we had previously.
I have found the opportunity to bring the workplace consultancy offering to our Project and Cost clients a huge advantage to how we support them. Along with the experience of Meirion and Paul Nash we have significantly bolstered how we support our clients.
A key element of the first 100 days has been the growth of Aberley’s team, we’ve had several new starters join Aberley since July. Rhys Bogle joined as a Workplace Consultant in September and has been a fantastic addition to the Workplace Change team. In November, Aberley created a new Sales & Marketing team with Emily Orbell joining as Marketing Assistant and Rob Little joining as Sales & Marketing Director, Rob also joined our board. In the Project and Cost Management team we have had the appointment of Rehana Raja as Projects Director who also joined in November. Rehana brings a wealth of knowledge and experience that further enhances our Project and Cost Management services, she has instantly made a positive impact on our service offering and support for our clients.
What’s the plan for the Project and Cost Management team?
The plan for our Project and Cost Management team is moving in the right direction with the support of the entire Aberley team. With the appointment of Rehana we are now perfectly placed to grow our service offering and continue to expand the great work we offer our clients. We’re in a significant growth phase at Aberley and it’s all focused around maintaining the quality of our service and therefore the quality of our people.
What projects are you working on at the moment?
The team have a wide range of experience in various sectors including office, retail and hospitality. Currently we are delivering projects in the office and hotel sectors for a number of existing long standing clients . We are currently working with YHA England and Wales and Malmaison Hotel du Vin delivering projects in Bath, Bristol and York. You may have seen our recent Avon Gorge project 3D tour on LinkedIn.
What’s in the future for Aberley and what are you looking forward to most?
I can see us growing considerably across all services of the business, we have a clear 5 and 10 year business plan, so no intention of sloping off to Greece anytime soon!
We have a team a team of highly experienced and motivated people who are all focused upon looking after our Clients and building the Aberley brand and business, which guided by Meirion Anderson, our CEO, who has been growing the business for 15 years. In the Project and Cost Management team I want to see driven continued growth therefore we are always on the lookout for quality people to join the team.
What I’m looking forward to the most is seeing the whole of Aberley grow whilst ensuring our clients remain the key focus of our efforts in both quality of delivery but also growing strong relationships that develop repeat business.
