Henry Boot Construction has appointed Craig Finn to the newly created position of Director, to maintain the business’s sustainable projects and lead its evolution

Craig Finn has a degree in engineering from The University of Aberdeen and 27 years of construction experience across the private and public sectors.

His extensive portfolio spans highways infrastructure and maintenance, civil engineering, building and refurbishment.

He joined Henry Boot Construction in 2015 as Bid Manager, where he was responsible for creating new strategies across a diverse range of projects. During this, he became a leading voice and advocate for the government’s Construction Playbook and sustainability.

Modern and sustainable future

As Director, Finn will now be able to promote modern partnerships and collaborations with procuring authorities to drive forward the implementation of new sustainable technologies.

And with the sector experiencing huge amounts of change due to technology, net-zero-carbon ambitions, Brexit, and COVID-19, Finn is encouraging customers to take a more efficient and joined-up approach to working, by bringing development teams, architects, supply chain and construction contractors together at the very early stages of a project lifecycle.

Successful company for 136 years

Finn explains: “At Henry Boot Construction, we’ve always been able to adapt to market conditions. We take well-informed decisions and because we are not a behemoth, we can remain flexible and nimble. That’s one of the reasons we’ve been successful for 136 years.

“Over the last five years the delivery model has adapted. It’s happened naturally as new technologies evolve but it’s becoming more and more evident that our customers need us to be involved from very early in the project timeline.

“Significant social value and net-zero-carbon ambitions can’t simply be bolted on, or retro-fitted, to a development project.

‘Collaboration can be effective and transformational’

“So, a large part of my new role will be to demystify some of the key sector challenges and demonstrate that true collaboration can be both effective and transformational.”

Tony Shaw, managing director at Henry Boot Construction, said: “I am pleased to welcome Craig to the board of Directors. He has made a significant impact in his time with us so far and in this new position he will be able to help drive the business forward.

“Craig supports and truly understands the industry’s agenda to modernise and create a sustainable future, and we are extremely confident he will position us and our customers at the forefront of this new era.”
