This comes at the same time as the hire of Stewart Owen as Strategy and Business Development Director
Base Quantum, the chartered quantity surveying practice, which specialises in Expert Witness, Dispute Management and Project Consultancy for the construction sector in the UK and globally, has promoted Steven Jackson, former Mott MacDonald Projects Director, to Managing Director and hired Stewart Owen as Strategy and Business Development Director. Steven and Stewart will work closely with CEO Duncan Hughes-Phillips as Base Quantum continues to grow its global presence, and expand on the consultancy services it is able to provide through all stages of the property cycle.
This year marks Base Quantum’s fifth birthday and in that short time, the business has grown substantially in both size and expertise. Its reputation is also expanding, having secured significant repeat instructions with some of the largest global law firms, acting on behalf of major government bodies and employers across a multitude of sectors. As a result, Base Quantum is now working on jobs in locations across five continents, including two of the largest infrastructure projects in the Middle East.
In a career spanning over 40 years, Steven has worked as a quantity surveyor, commercial manager and projects director across all construction sectors. His extensive experience has seen him become a specialist in the commercial management of major infrastructure projects and all aspects of contract advisory work and sustainable procurement.
Stewart has a wealth of experience in strategy, marketing and business development, and with over 30 years’ experience in the construction industry, he is a specialist in supply chain leadership. Stewart has been integrally involved in the full spectrum of commercial construction, from initial concept, through to technical specification, tender management, sub-contractor selection, operational delivery and to the settlement of final account.
Duncan Hughes-Phillips, CEO at Base Quantum, commented:
Since joining the Base Quantum team in January, Steven has made a significant contribution to the development of the business on the international playing field. His promotion, along with Stewart’s hire, will take Base to the next level as we continue to expand both domestically and internationally.
We have been able to establish a major presence in the industry and hold our own against some of the biggest companies in the world thanks to the strength of our team, our high quality of work, and standard of serviced. Steven and Stewart will be fundamental as we continue to expand both geographically and in the services we are provide to clients at all stages of the property cycle.”
