PPN Ipswich June 2015

Our owner Jim Campbell recently gave a talk entitled “Refurb like a professional” to a mixed audience of new and experienced property investors at the popular PPN (Progressive Property Network) event in Ipswich hosted by Halstead Ottley. An event well worth a visit if you are at all interested in property!

“Refurb like a professional” – Jim Campbell 

Jim runs his own successful construction company based in Halesworth. The company was formed in 2008 and has a Commercial Services Division and a Residential Services Division. The company carries out their own developments and refurbishments and have contracts with a number of Councils.

A civil engineer by profession, Jim has worked in senior management roles on several large projects throughout the UK, Sizewell B power station and the Jubilee Line Extension to name a couple. He has been a Project Manager on numerous multi-million pound projects and latterly a Contract Manager for 12 years running multiple sites across the UK in specialist disciplines before concentrating full time on his own business. Jim has an extensive knowledge of commercial & residential refurbishments and specialises in areas such as building defects and fire protection. 

 Jim also completed Progressive Property’s VIP programme in 2013.

The talk highlighted our systemised approach to carrying out our refurbishment projects. We use the same tried and tested management process for all of our projects.

The talk was well received and updated the audience on the requirements of the recently introduced CDM (Construction, Design & Management) Regulations 2015. Since 6th April 2015, there are specific duties that the client and contractor must do in relation to Health & Safety on site. If you want any further information on this please contact our office for advice on your next project.

Jim is available for talks at events however these opportunities are limited due to his other commitments.
