Emma-Jane is a highly experienced infrastructure specialist with a strong executive advisor background in major infrastructure projects and a chartered quantity surveyor. Her expertise is based on both coal-face delivery and Big 4 advisory. Highlights include her roles at Terminal 5, East London Line Extension, Thameslink and London 2012. It is this mix of roles, and the very different delivery environments within which she operated, that sparked a deep interest in the link between commercial ‘ethos’ and the resulting performance of project teams and their extended supply chains. Her core expertise is in the creation and optimisation of collaborative structures including partnerships, alliances and joint ventures. She has used the learning from her delivery and consulting experience to design 21st century fit-for-purpose Commercial Functions that underpin UK mega-programmes.
Emma-Jane chairs the Crossrail 2 Expert Cost, Commercial and Risk Group (ERG) and the Institution of Civil Engineers' Civil Engineer of the Future Working Group. She is a Major in Engineering and Logistics Staff Corps commissioned to provide impartial and confidential advice to the British Armed Forces.
