Michael trained as a Quantity Surveyor joining the industry straight from school in 1985 and has over 25 years of broad experience of major commercial developments in the UK and Ireland including Great Ormond Street Hospital, Alban Gate, MOD Whitehall, Emirates Stadium, The Jack Lynch Tunnel to name a few.
In 1995 Michael established MWA Consultants Limited, a QS practice specialising in mechanical and electrical engineering services surveying. This practice still runs today and employs around 10 full time M&E QS’s who are seconded to major contractors throughout the UK.
In 2000 Michael formed a specialist builderswork in connection company which was the springboard for Hurstmore. Working mainly for M&E contractors and offering a BWIC service, the predecessor of Hurstmore quickly gained a reputation for accurate pricing and implementation of BWIC elements of an M&E contract that normally would be guessed by the estimators.
In more recent years, Hurstmore has increased its presence in the market place and diversified to offer project management resources as well as residential development opportunities.
Michael is still very much at the forefront of the business and is overall in charge of all operations on a day to day basis.
