Constructing Excellence

Alina joined the business in December 2021 in the Estimating and Cost Management team in Manchester. She has demonstrated leadership and technical skills by putting herself forward to lead a small young team within our Manchester office, whilst becoming the key contact point for technical development and guiding the team to successfully deliver estimating projects.

Her dedication and performance resulted in Alina leading the Cost Assurance on HS2’s and Europe’s largest civils programme, whilst also supporting our business on bids and leading on cost assurance works for South-East Water and Network Rail’s Trans-Pennine Route Upgrade programme.

Alina plays a key role on HS2 and is the youngest Estimating Manager within the team. She is leading on maturing the estimating and undertaking cost assurance works on the Phase 1 Bottom-Up Forecast Main Works Civil contracts (+£7bn).

Alina is passionate about developing our business, contributing to the growth of the team and innovation agenda by attracting exceptional talent into the business and supporting with the digital innovation, such as unit rates library and quality assurance process.

People’s feedback represents her business card. These illustrate ‘a foregoing leader who shared knowledge on how to deliver tasks in an efficient way.’
