Bobby DarraghBuilding Project Manager South London
Bobby lives in the capital and is our building project manager for South London. He joined CLPM at the beginning of 2020, to help boost the size of our team supporting clients in South London and the surrounding areas.
Bobby has worked in the construction industry for over 20 years and is an experienced building project manager. As a fully qualified and experienced electrician, Bobby hails from Boston, Massachusetts and spent the first 12 years or so of his career in the United States, working in the commercial sector managing shop fitting projects as well as organising ongoing property maintenance work.
A move to London then led to him working for a property investment and development company project managing the refurbishment of high end residential and commercial properties in the W1 area. Many of these projects involved Grade 1 or Grade 2 listed buildings and included sympathetic renovation works, re-models and the conversion of commercial buildings into residential homes – all of which were subsequently sold or let to clients.
Bobby then went on to work in the Design & Build and Architectural Design sector as a project manager. Typically, these refurbishment, extension and new build projects were c£400K or larger, with the majority in some of London’s most prestigious areas – such as Knightsbridge, Chelsea, Fulham, Hampstead, Maida Vale and Richmond. Many came with a variety of technical challenges to oversee such as the installation of basements, bespoke features and high-tech equipment. One such project included a major £12m pound residential project in Twickenham with a floating marble staircase, a dynamic deck and an in/out swimming pool with a huge amount of structural glazing.
Bobby’s clients have found his friendly, un-flappable approach and diverse experience to be invaluable on their projects.
