Biography

James is the Delivery Director for one of the largest and most complex infrastructure projects in the
country, leading the redevelopment of London Bridge Station with the mantra of ‘Proudly working
together, improving lives and serving London’. The project delivers a total re-build of the aging
London Bridge station, with fifteen new platforms and a concourse the size of Wembley Stadium – it
will significantly ease the flow of train services on the Thameslink route through Central London.

James has over fifteen years experience working for Costain Ltd in some of the more challenging and
diverse major projects in recent years – Grade 1 refurbishment, science research facilities, hospitals,
train stations, all of which have required clear leadership and direction. His project management
techniques to control the many legged beasts that major projects are have developed over the years
and are being put to great use on the biggest challenge yet – the £1bn works at London Bridge.
