Paul Dobson


Paul has gained a wealth of knowledge within the M&E Building Services Sector, with over 27 years’ experience. He has the unusual mix of design and construction backgrounds. He started in the industry with a large M&E consultancy, developing into a Chartered Engineer. He joined the contracting arm of the sector and progressed through the Engineering and Project Manager’s roles to Operations Manager.

His key blue chip clients have included British Land, Land Securities, Vodafone and T-Mobile. All these clients demanded zero defects at Practical Completion and strict on programme and budget completion. He has become an influential leader with a structural approach to project control. Paul also has extensive experience of education projects leading a number of major and demanding projects involving design, construction (both traditional and off-site) of services and finishes. He has gained precise knowledge of the client’s requirements running multiple teams. He is now responsible for all aspects of major project delivery at H E Barnes Ltd.

“The passion and people-based nature of the construction industry are major factors which always maintain my drive, enthusiasm and enjoyment of our business. This helps in my goal of ensuring H E Barnes remains a key player in all main M&E sectors both locally and nationally. Building and nurturing enduring working relationships, with a totally honest, transparent and flexible approach, is another rewarding and enjoyable aspect of my role at H E Barnes”.
