"At John Perkins Construction, I’m more than just a cog in a machine. The company is not too big, not too small, and my voice is listened to."
Sam Bendall-Weeks looks after the commercial aspects of construction projects at John Perkins Construction. He works closely with Commercial Manager Alex Jenkins, liaising with subcontractors and clients, placing orders, and carrying out cost reporting.
He graduated from UWE Bristol with a BSc (Hons) in Quantity Surveying and Commercial Management, and started his career at Cubit SES and Rateavon.
Sam joined the company in 2018 as an Assistant Quantity Surveyor and quickly moved up, thanks to his eagerness to learn and his ability to forge strong relationships with subcontractors and clients alike.
He relishes negotiating the best deal, and working positively as part of the John Perkins team.
John Perkins quickly formed good working relationships and had a professional understanding of how to work in school environments – the team were very accommodating to our needs. We felt respected at all times and it was a very positive experience.
