Natalya Tonkins and Roger Lawson, business development managers at Jerram Falkus, will be attending Sitematch on 8 February. They spoke with the Sitematch team ahead of the event.
Can you say something about your roles and responsibilities at Jerram Falkus?
As business development managers, we are responsible for identifying suitable construction opportunities, developing new contacts and building our profile through marketing our business. In addition to new business, it is important for us to get feedback on our completed projects and maintain relationships with our existing clients and consultants.
What can Jerram Falkus offer local authorities as a development partner that others can't?
We are a family business that has been operating for over 130 years predominantly in the public sector building housing and education projects.
Our longevity as a business and our successful project history is reassuring to our clients and demonstrates our strength and ability. Our innovative approach; whether it be innovation in building process or innovation in terms of value engineering and cost efficiencies, is key to our long-term success. It is important for us to develop good working relationships with our clients and we employ dedicated and talented staff that are committed to delivering quality projects to maintain this reputation.||
What qualities do you look for in your public sector partners?
When working with public sector partners we aim for an open and collaborative approach. It is important for us to work as a team with the client and their partners in order to achieve the aspirations of the project and allow us as the contractor to contribute our expertise to our best ability.
What are your objectives for attending the next event in February?
We are looking forward to attending the Sitematch event in February which will give us an opportunity to network with local authorities and our development and construction colleagues.
We hope to learn more about future development and construction opportunities coming up across London and the surrounding areas, as well as make new connections and meet up with existing contacts.
