"We all take living and working safely in our built environment for granted; making sure that happens is a real privilege."

Dave Dorrington joined Watts in 1996; he was promoted to associate in 2003 and became a director in 2010.  He is currently a member of the Business Development Team with a variety of responsibilities which help ensure Watts’ reputation is maintained and enhanced in these challenging times.  Dave brings energy, enthusiasm, passion and commitment to everything he does, consistently achieving challenging objectives.

After graduating as a civil engineer in 1986, Dave gained experience working in a variety of roles within property and project management on the public sector and MoD Estates. Before joining Watts, he was responsible for managing three Establishment Works Consultant contracts, covering seven sites with a total fee income of over £2m.  On joining Watts, he took over responsibility for organising and implementing routine compliance and specialist reviews of the MoD estate.

More recently he re-designed Watts’ quality management system so it introduced a more flexible operational framework and complied with ISO 9001.  This allows staff to deliver services that consistently meet clients’ diverse needs and expectations without constraining professional judgement, or introducing unnecessary paperwork.  In addition to maintaining the third-party certification for this QMS, he manages the Watts-wide public sector bidding procedure, improving standards and coordinating activities across all our UK offices.
