Consultant Arcadis UK has appointed Paul Taplin as director of contractual services
Taplin will be based in Arcadis’s London office with the remit to enhance the company’s contractual offering including claims preparation and review, dispute resolution, arbitration, adjudication, mediation and delay analysis. He joins from FTI Brewer Consulting where he was a Managing Director.
Taplin started his career as a quantity surveyor in contractual services where he spent 10 years with Berkeley Consulting, he subsequently moved on to James R Knowles and then to EC Harris where he became an Equity Partner responsible for Contract Advisory Services in the South West and Wales. Initially a Chartered Quantity Surveyor, he went on to qualify in arbitration and is an Accredited Expert Witness (Cardiff University), a CIArb Registered Adjudicator and a CEDR Accredited Mediator.
“Paul’s skills will be invaluable particularly on the major cost management projects we handle at ARCADIS,” said Arcadis director infrastructure Mark Stayt. “This appointment is deliberately timed to coincide with the emerging markets where clients want to ensure that any issues regarding delays and/or cost increases are resolved early, quickly and economically.”
