Grahaeme Henderson | Resident Engineer | Shell UK (now Shell’s Vice President for Shipping and Marine)
More than 35 years international experience on major projects for leading multi-nationals. From an early and wide ranging grounding in quantity surveying, in the UK, I gained a solid base from which my experience has evolved since.
Well rounded with particular emphasis in contract management (pre & post), pre-contract document drafting/tender management, post-contract set-up and execution, claimsmanagement including forming the ‘argument’, preparation of claim, or alternatively the defence/mitigation of claims, the development of project procedures with a specific focus on claims avoidance, all supply chain activities, schedule management/risk management, cost and budgetary controls, and all project services/project controls.
Resilient, focused and reliable with well honed negotiating skills and an ability to think outside of the box, as much as inside, whenever significant obstacles arise, yet with an equal respect for procedures and protocol.
Having well developed skills, across the entire project commercial management spectrum, and with excellent work references (see above), I come with a solid project management skill-set which relates well to powergen, infrastructure, LNG, hydro, renewables, utilities, nuclear, defence, pipelines/cables (land and sub-sea), plant expansions, O&G, marine, and rail, etc.
This ability to cross over sectors has been successfully proven with roles undertaken previously in such diverse sectors as powergen, defence, ship refits, major infrastructure, LNG and oil & gas.
Covering the complete project life cycle from concept through FEED/detail design to construct/install/commission/start-up within lump sum, remeasure, reimbursable and target cost contract mechanisms, within E, EP, EPC and EPCi contracting structures. I am flexible on location and welcome opportunities either in the UK, Europe, Middle East, South East Asia or anywhere else around the globe.
