To ensure all projects are fully checked technically. I ensure that the method of design has principles that are fast and effective for the installation on site and are valued engineered, without compromising design, before going to manufacture.
Bailey works across all sectors of construction, which offers me a broad variety of designs to view. I especially enjoy visiting sites, offering guidance to those that are unfamiliar with our systems. We provide drawings and scheduling to make sure installation is as straightforward as possible. It is extremely satisfying when I am contacted by fitters who say that the information, products and services that we offer help them to install more efficiently than other systems they’ve used.
It is the Bailey way to deliver on time to suit customers’ programmes. The most challenging aspect of this is not receiving construction drawings from subcontractors on time. These are crucial, as we develop our installation drawings with the objective of drawing once. Having to chase this information is demanding and time consuming, but is essential to us. Our aim is to provide working drawings that are accepted by all parties prior to manufacture, avoiding delays with remaking.
Knowing your product and systems inside out is so important, so you can offer the best advice to customers. It also helps to be open minded and consider other ways products can be used.

I’m a season ticket holder for my local team Brighton and Hove Albion. I’ve seen so many changes over the years, from squatting at the Withdean Stadium to the far posher surroundings of the newly built Amex Stadium (which boasts a Bailey bullnose profile!).
I also make an annual pilgrimage to Le Mans to watch the racing – and enjoy the food, wine and meeting old petrol head friends.
A new found love of mine is going on cruises. Sitting back, soaking up the sun, travelling the world.
I do enjoy playing a bit of golf and watching as much sport as possible, but all revolves around my greatest love, ‘The Seagulls’.
