Pontefract based Quantum CPM, which provides quantity surveying and project management services to the construction and industrial sectors, has strengthened its senior team with the appointment of a new director.

Lee Williamson takes up the post to expand the company’s specialist support for construction contractors and sub-contractors involved in all kinds of projects, ranging from new build, refurbishment and shopfitting to mining and those in the rail industry.

As a RICS chartered surveyor, Lee will provide professional quantity surveying services to clients ranging from estimating through to full commercial management of a contract. He has a particular expertise in claims advice and works with businesses of all sizes from sole traders to businesses up to a £10m turnover.

Lee brings over 20 years’ experience to Quantum CPM, during which has worked with contractors undertaking major projects for clients including Network Rail, Sirius Minerals, the NHS, West Yorkshire Police, the MOD and Land Securities. He has worked nationally and internationally, including five years in Australia working on railway schemes and in mining, for the country’s largest privately owned contractor BGC Contracting – now NRW.

His appointment supports the growth plans of the firm who have been operating from their Pontefract base for more than 20 years. The expansion of the company’s client base reflects its strategy to make its specialist cost and project management services accessible and affordable to all types of contractor and sub-contractor.

Stephen Pilling, co-founder and director said: “We’re really pleased to welcome Lee to the business and look forward to working with him as we take the business into its next era. His skills and experience will be extremely valuable to all our clients, large and small, as it will help them to deliver construction contracts in the most professional, efficient and smoothest way.”

Lee added: “Quantum CPM’s services have the potential to make a really important contribution to improving the way contracts are delivered in the construction sector for both contractors and sub-contractors. With the portfolio of services available, Quantum CPM has an excellent platform to grow and it is exciting to be part of the business at this stage.”
