David then moved back to London where he freelanced as project manager for MACE where he ran a large project for a refurbishment for Barclays and ran a team of technicians, site managers and design managers as well as meeting with Barclays to ensure the projects ran extremely well. He then moved to an architects in London where he ran a nationwide rollout of a highly respected retail company, who were redesigning and refurbishing the stores.

Following completion of the rollout, David freelanced in London and the south east for various architects, construction companies and engineers, before eventually deciding to set up a practice within Sevenoaks, a town and community he holds closely to his heart and knows extremely well.

David was so helpful from the first telephone consultation. He listened very carefully to my ideas. At our next meeting he presented these plans but more importantly also presented an alternative scheme of his own design. The team's ideas were so superior that we never looked at my scheme seriously again.
