Graham Thompson

The bespoke, high-value, complex construction project is no stranger to failure. But on the biggest school project in Europe to achieve the ultra-exacting Passivhaus low-energy standard, Graham Thompson delivered not just on time and on budget but also to the highest possible quality for a delighted customer. Pragmatic, disciplined and strategic, he engaged with the stakeholders to buy into the goal. Without shying away from difficult conversations, he ensured a no-blame collaborative culture.
