"I can strongly recommend Gerry Bogue as an experienced and effective professional, able to supervise and deliver residential building projects – including at the larger and more complex end of the spectrum – on time and on budget. He was an outstanding site manager of successive months-long phases of a central London warehouse conversion for which I was the employer. One of his particular strengths was the depth of his network in the building trade enabling him to overcome problems as they arose, finding quicker and often cheaper alternatives to suppliers and sub-contractors who failed to deliver punctually. I have also been impressed with his ‘after-sales service’, always providing a prompt and conscientious response on maintenance and finishing issues. "
“TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN
is to confirm that the above person was the manager in charge of the
works at one of our projects and we found that he has earned our deepest
respect as a most competent, honest and helpful person.
competence was never questioned but he demonstrated in
the course of the
works a knowledge of building worth of the "old school". His
management of the work force under his supervision was refined and yet
firm and effective. His honesty was revealed always in the quality of
his advice, which he was always prepared
to give when asked.
"As architects, we have administered a number of building contracts over the last decade involving Gerry Bogue. On each occasion he has proved himself to be a very competent site manager, with a full knowledge of building technology, skilful at liaising with subcontractors and workmen on site, cool under pressure and able to foresee difficulties before they arise. His practical construction skills derive from many years of experience, and this backs up his management skills with concrete knowledge. He also has an excellent understanding of building costs and a pro-active approach to information technology.
