Trident team joins K2

15th April 2020


Darren Kemp Projects Director at K2 Consultancy

Darren Kemp has joined K2 Consultancy in the newly created role of Projects Director and will be responsible for leading the service delivery of the practice’s progressive, construction-led cost management philosophy and approach to projects.

Darren joins from Trident Building Consultancy where he led the cost management proposition and is joined by Grant Tewkesbury and Sean Derrick in the roles of Associate and Assistant Cost Consultant in accompanying moves that were made possible as part of Tridents strategic realignment of core services.

It is Darren’s approach to cost management that sparked the interest of K2 with his ideology closely aligned to the progressive approach and philosophy of Paul Allen, who joined the practice from Mace in 2019. The move promises a strong strategic fit and a rare opportunity to bring a group of people together that passionately believe in providing a fresh approach to cost management which blends the best of consultancy and construction expertise in order to provide tailored solutions to client’s needs

The move follows recent investment in the practice from Otak, a US-based multi-disciplinary firm, based in Portland, Oregon. Otak are keen to support K2’s plans to create and grow a UK based platform, with global reach

K2’s Managing Director John Setra said, “This is a fantastic boost to the firm at this difficult time. Darren and his team will be supporting our growing cost management engagements which have developed from a strong and loyal client base that we have been working with for many years. When we emerge from the Covid-19 crisis Darren and the team will be helping our clients to get their projects back on track”
