Adrian Predoi
I have a background in engineering and business management, leading strategic capital investment portfolios for international companies across the infrastructure, natural resources and manufacturing industries within the UK, Europe, North America and Australia.  I thrive on working through challenging, ground-breaking projects with complex communication flows - overseeing remote teams, spread across continents.

I am a subject matter expert in leading and embedding change through end-to-end transformation programmes covering the development of an organisation's vision, strategy, operating model, functional set-ip and integration. Creating new ways of working through integration and collaboration with the supply chain.

Q. What attracted you to join Turner & Townsend?

A. One of the things that stood out for me was the company’s impressive client portfolio and their vision of becoming the best in the market. I wanted to join a company that had great ambitions and was committed to making a difference in the construction industry.

Q. How has your career at Turner & Townsend developed?

A. I joined the company in Sep 2017 as an Associate Director within the Infrastructure sector, Programme Management Office. In May 2018, I received the opportunity to join programme advisory, a newly formed business unit, focused on servicing four distinct market areas: industry, enterprise, setup and performance.

I’m currently delivering an advisory commission for Heathrow, heading up the performance and reporting management function, part of the Programme Management Office, dedicated to support the Expansion programme (third runway).

Q. Describe your typical day.

A. In the consultancy business no two days are the same and there are a lot of diverse activities that occur within a day. I can find myself briefing the client in an executive meeting, presenting last month’s performance insights for the iconic Heathrow Expansion programme and then going back to London to meet with one of my mentees for a one-to-one session to discuss what is our “bid to win” process and how we can position ourselves to successfully generate new business.

Q. What is the emerging trend in your industry specialism and how are you responding to this?

A. The mind shift change to a digitised construction industry is one of the key trends that I see forming. The construction industry is in dire need for innovation and us, as a business, want to be the front runners in this digital revolution. I think that this massive transformation requires a holistic approach driven by governmental digital strategy policies and implemented by public and private companies operating as client or as part of the construction’s industry supply chain.
