Harvey - Contract Manager - Ashford, Kent, UK

Mark Harvey

Ashford, Kent, UK


Contract Manager


My most recent position was of Contracts Manager, the value of contracts varied between £45,000 - £95,000. I found the role challenging but also very rewarding when the contract had finished to the clients approval.

I have had a lot of fabrication experience from the nuclear sector through to architectural/structural fabrication. This I feel, has given me the knowledge needed to think on my feet to overcome problems within design and manufacture.

I have a very good knowledge of installation, this covers simple railings through to structural steel works. I can identify installation issues at the survey point rather than at the last minute.

Through my positions of supervisory levels, I am very aware of correct paper trails, health and safety and the importance of communication.

Folkstone Station

Position: Welder / Fabricator

I made this handrail along with another welder. It had to be fabricated on site due to the complexity of the ramp, it would have been almost impossible to make this in the workshop. We had the handrails finished within a week and then cut it into sections so that it could be powder coated. Once coated, the handrail was put together with expandable spigots.

Homebase Mezzanine's

I was involved within 25 Homebase store mezzanine staircases and handrail. We started off with powder coated handrails but at after the 20th store they changed the design to stainless steel top rails. These were welded on site as there was no safe way of transportation. I worked along side the welders due to the 2 week turn around required for each store. We were installing 4 stores a month.
