Dr Greg Watts
Lecturer in Quantity Surveying
Before lecturing at the University of Salford I worked in the construction industry up to the level of Senior Quantity Surveyor, for various companies, on a range of multi-million pound projects.
Having always aimed to improve behaviours and practices at every company where I have worked, in the hope of playing a part (albeit small) in improving the construction industry, I decided to move into construction education in the hope of inspiring and improving future generations. So far so good….
