New face at Dalrymples

Les Beardon has joined Ramsey-based construction consultants Dalrymple Associates.

Mr Beardon, a Fellow of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors, will develop the company's cost management services.

The process identifies the costs associated with investment in procurement of land, property and facilities, making informed choices about the options that will deliver best value for money, then managing those costs throughout the life of the project.

He joins the business from UK construction and property consultants Arcadis and brings a wealth of both contractor and consultancy experience in civil engineering, building and land development projects, having worked in the UK, Baghdad, Dubai, Australia, Singapore, Hong Kong and the USA.

Mr Beardon said: "After working in large organisations for many years, I am delighted to have joined what is very much a family business where everyone feels part of a dedicated team. I've also found the people of the Isle of Man to be extremely welcoming.

"I’m particularly pleased to be joining Dalrymples at a time when we are looking to work in partnership with government and the private sector on projects that will help revitalise the north of the Island."

Mr Beardon comes from Birmingham and lives with his wife, Joan and daughter, Grace, in Ramsey.
