Charles has spent over 50 years in the construction industry - his first twenty five years in contracting with Costain and Wimpey, then 18 years in a design environment with Fosters and Partners, where he was a partner and, since 2006, heading-up his own consultancy .

His 18 years experience in Practice management at Foster + Partners give him a close understanding of architects whom he recognises love design, and balancing that with the running of a successful international practice. Importantly his contracting background and delivering designs in other industries means he equally understands how engineers and contractors approach projects.

His input in to buildability and construction techniques can be crucial at the early stages of design. His experience and vision mean that he can quickly identify where his input can be most valuable.

He has been involved with many projects, large and small, at home and overseas. These include HSBC HQ in Hong Kong where his role for the management contractor was delivering the Foster led design for procurement and construction, projects for universities, defence, oil and gas industries, nuclear power stations, city office buildings, education and cultural buildings and the refurbishment and redevelopment of existing buildings.
