Managing Director
B.Sc. (Hons)., FRICS., MCIOB., MCIArb 

David joined Underpin & Makegood in 1983. He worked his way up from working on site to his current role.  David has managed a variety of projects, including underpinning the House of Lords, part of London Zoo, a significant section of London’s Guildhall and an 18th century farmhouse in rural France. As Chairman (currently in his second term in this role) of ASUC , the industries leading Trade Association and past Chairman of the Occupational Working Group that devised the NVQ qualification in underpinning, David’s site experience and qualifications as a Chartered Surveyor stand him in good stead to run and manage our Company, aided by his valued board and team of hugely experienced managers.

David has a particular affinity with period buildings and bygone construction techniques and is always keen to see damaged buildings restored in a sympathetic way to their former glory.

David is married, has 2 children, lives in North London and cites his interests as reading, football, cycling, golf, keeping fit and eating!
