Nigel Clifford profile photoIn his early years, Nigel enjoyed experience ranging from site labourer (during student summer holidays), Design Engineer, and Site Engineer.  He progressed to becoming the client’s Project Manager / Resident Engineer on multi-million pound schemes in both the UK and overseas (Hong Kong and UAE). Now he has become more involved with the commercial/contractual aspects of construction projects. Nigel is currently a construction claims delay analyst drawing on his experience in the assessment of construction programmes and project delays.

He has recently been involved with the Crossrail scheme as a delay analyst, as well as on a number of other smaller public and private infrastructure projects. Nigel contacted University of Brighton in 2014 with a view to ‘putting something back’ via speaking to students outlining how rewarding a career as a civil engineer can be. He has presented to the students for the past seven years on this subject, as well as more recently lecturing on health and safety.

From being involved with the university Nigel heard about the IAB and was keen to become involved. He and was invited to become a member in 2015, and elected as Chairman in 2019.
