Allan is a Director of Bouygues UK (formerly Warings) based in 1000 Lakeside and responsible for Business Development and all activities pre-contract. In his 40 years experience in the construction industry, over 30 of which has been spent at Warings, he has been involved in a significant number of familiar Portsmouth landmark projects such as the completion of Portsmouth Cathedral, the Mary Rose Museum, the News Print works at Hilsea and the University of Portsmouth Headquarters building.
Allan has lived, been educated in or worked in Portsmouth all his life and has seen the City change from one dominated by the Royal Navy through the period when IBM’s European Headquarters were based in the City, the construction of the motorways and the developments at Port Solent, North Harbour and Gunwharf Quays.
Outside the world of work Allan enjoys spending time on the water or in the gym but also has a large, mainly female family, with two grandchildren, who all live in the local area and take up most of his remaining available time. He also enjoys attending Formula 1 racing and music events around the world as the centrepiece of his holidays when time allows!
