Igor Ruiz-Apilanez (+44) 07576 562574


I began my UK career working at Boxco2 Consultants as CAD Technician, developing design and construction drawing packages as one of the most junior members of the team and, within 2 years in the company, I became a senior member responsible for running projects almost independently while assisting more junior members of the team.

As Senior Project Manager, I lead the projects from the initial brief to handover in a smooth and efficient way, to achieve the highest possible quality within the desired timeframe and project budget.

Seeking further development and progression I joined Mailen Design in 2015. Once I became familiar with the company’s methodologies and procedures, I was capable of managing autonomously and simultaneously multiple projects and clients, from initial meeting through all project stages up to handover, reporting to the director as and when required.

Main responsibilites include, among others: - Liaison with clients, designers, landlords, external consultants and contractors - Production of preliminary cost estimates and programme of works for the client - Supervision and coordination of drawing packages, construction details and joinery drawings - Preparation of tender documentation, lead tender process and negotiate contract award - Identify potential risk and implement mitigation measures - Oversee and manage all project stages; pre-construction, on-site, post-completion - Obtain all relevant statutory approvals i.e. license to alter, planning and advertisement consents - Lead site meetings, prepare meeting agendas and meeting minutes - Progress and cost reports to the client throughout the project - Project administration i.e. contracts, certificates, instructions, EOTs - Liaison with BR & CDM Coordinators - Settlement of final accounts and compilation of O&M documentation - Post Completion snagging and defects

Responsible, motivated, very organised and efficient person, who learns and adapts quickly to new environments and is always up for the next challenge.
