His career with Pochin’s was interspersed with overseas experience in construction engineering in South Africa working on the SASOL 2 multi-billion pound oil-from-coal project.

In the nineties he was contracted to HBOS Commercial Developments Division as UK Special Projects Manager procuring and co-ordinating contractors and managing the interface between client and developer.

Since 2001 he has been Sole Principal of Pye Associates often representing contractors as claims consultant in both arbitration and adjudication proceedings.
