Making the Difference


Message from our founder…Hello and Welcome

I have worked in the construction industry for over 25 years both in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. I feel through this experience that I have developed an extensive knowledge of all aspects of the commercial, contracts and claims management of construction projects. In recent years having specialised in the management of complex construction claims and dispute resolution on behalf of the Contractor and Project Owner.

My aim when I set up Diafora was to create a consultancy where our clients could rely on us to make the difference to their projects no matter how big or small, offering value and cost-effective services to improve their performance.

Having had the opportunity in recent years to work along-side some of the most talented consultants in the industry I believe the team created behind Diafora is one that offers unparalleled experience in the commercial and contracts management and project control disciplines allowing us as a team to provide excellent support to our Client’s for both private and public projects.

I believe that our primary resource is our exceptional consultants and associates that provide collaborative, team-oriented services on an as needed basis. Our alliance with these and other key individuals and organizations allows us to support clients in matters involving all divisions of engineering and construction.

Having personally had the opportunity to further my own knowledge and understanding of our construction industry through further self-learning, tailored courses and conferences I am a firm believer in continuing our personal learning at Diafora and promoting continued professional development for all our consultants and associates. I am therefore committed to the personal growth of all Diafora employees and associates whilst offering a stable and rewarding working environment.

We strive for our team at Diafora to be the most respected and sought-after construction consulting team in the Industry and to be the team that our valued clients rely on time and again to make the difference to their projects.

I am very proud of our team and what we strive to achieve, this is embodied in our company name Diafora which is derived from the Greek Noun meaning “the difference” .

We are Diafora, we make the difference.
