We've appointed a new Contracts Director

New appointment

We’ve kicked off the year with a huge promotion which sees former Project Manager Jonathan Meats accepting a well-earned position on the board as Contracts Director (Designate).

Jonathan joins Tim Fisher and Andy Brown on the board of Directors, becoming an integral part of the management team overseeing the company’s future progression.

Over the course of his 15 years at Garners, Jonathan’s position has evolved, seeing him take on an ever-increasing senior role as Project Manager and head of the Contracts Department, organically leading him to accept a position on the board as the next natural progression.

“Having developed with Garners throughout my career, I’m honoured to accept the role and represent the company at board level. We have a fantastic, creative team at Garners and it’s a privilege to help guide our growth as we enter an exciting period, seeing new BIM developments and stunning visualisations through VR technology.”

Key elements of the role will include delivering strategic company goals and managing the entire organisation’s design and estimating activity in addition to on-site project delivery.

“I take great pride in contributing to the development of both the company and the talented staff within; helping realise the ideas of our team, which go on to benefit our workflow and clients alike, is a very rewarding part of the role – this will continue to evolve as I settle into the new position!”


Proud work

A recent highlight of Jonathan’s work includes the successful project management of the huge Vision Tameside – one of our largest schemes to date.

Following the 2016 public sector BIM mandate, Vision was one of the first large-scale college projects to buy into the integrated model approach; by implementing Revit throughout our Contracts Department, we met the surge of BIM-focused projects head-on and seized the opportunity to grow as a business in the new, specialist sector.

“With Vision on the verge of completion and Revit continuing to benefit our designs and customers, I’m looking forward to the continuing evolution and growth of the company in my new position!”

Having featured in Catering Insight’s Power List of 2015, Jonathan Meats has been a big contributor to our annual growth plans for many years. With over 20 years in the catering industry, his experience spans manufacturing and estimating bespoke items to the design and project management of entire catering facilities.

We are sure Jonathan will excel in this role and look forward to the future!
