Dean Averies joined Beard in 1988 as a trainee quantity surveyor and estimator and has been construction director for Beard in Oxford for the past two years. He takes up his new position from John Youle, who retired last year.
“I’m delighted that we have someone of Dean’s calibre and construction experience heading up our Oxford operations and taking the business forward,” said David Sershall, managing director of Beard. “With his proven expertise in successful project delivery, commitment to exceptional client service and in-depth knowledge of the regional construction market, I am confident he will achieve great things for Beard in the region.”
Beard is currently building a £6.5m basement library at Queen’s College Oxford and the £7.2m Nazrin Shah performing arts and lecture theatre at Worcester College.
“I’m delighted to have the opportunity of heading up our Oxford operations at the start of an exciting new phase of business growth,” said Dean Averies. “I have a dedicated and talented construction team working with me and together we are looking forward to growing the business through outstanding client service and a commitment to prompt and faultless project delivery.”
