Ailsa Doherty - Project Manager
Ailsa has always felt the draw to construction. Even while carrying out a law degree, she had a part time role within a building company. After completing her degree she felt a legal career wasn’t for her and instead joined a main contractor as a quantity surveyor and returned to studying, gaining a HNC in construction at night school.
This led on to a role as an Estimator, carrying out competitive tenders for design and build, new build and refurbishment works within both the public and private sectors for clients such as Lancashire County Council, Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust, Abbeyfield Care Homes and the Retail Trust.
After 12 years working in main contracting, Ailsa decided to take her skills client side and HB Villages was the perfect fit as a project manager for the leading provider of bespoke property for supportive living. Her hard working, determined but fun approach to work makes her a core part of the HB Villages team.
