As part of its continued growth in North America, Canada and the Caribbean, Mace has appointed Greg Parker as Managing Director of Cost Consultancy for the region.
Greg will be based at Mace's office in the New York City, and joins the company from his previous position of senior manager at Ernst & Young’s Construction and Real Estate Advisory Services.
Mace’s cost consultancy business is one of the UK’s industry leaders and Greg will deliver this expert service to North American clients, helping them to manage the risks surrounding construction projects.
Leading the cost advisory team, he will oversee project lifecycle cost management and control services, project risk assessment and monitoring, and traditional costs audits for cost recovery. He will also advise on better positioning so owners can avoid cost overruns and unwarranted costs by developing improvements in project governance and procedures.
Greg has more than 25 years’ experience in construction cost and procurement management serving blue chip corporate clients across the US and UK within financial, health and life sciences, technology, energy, public sector and infrastructure industries.
His relationship with Mace spans more than 15 years since his work with asset management company Currie and Brown at Heathrow Airport, where Mace has been providing construction related services since 1996.
As a leader in construction risk identification, Greg has helped numerous companies establish and implement risk management as a core project management activity. With a particular interest in construction anti-fraud awareness he is also the author of published articles including ‘Construction fraud is on the rise – here’s what you can do to mitigate it’ and has been a speaker on subjects of client based cost estimating, integrated project controls, and risk mitigation.
Greg commented: “Mace adopts a modern approach to cost consultancy and delivers tailored solutions for clients who rely on us to drive efficiency throughout each stage of a real estate project. Our clients realise the value of specialist advice and I look forward to expanding the company’s offer across the region and providing solutions to deliver the best possible value from construction costs.”
