Front Elevation has been set up by Paul Scott with the aim of offering cost effective support to companies who are supplying into the Construction Sector. Almost regardless of size or pedigree many suppliers and manufacturers need to maximise their exposure at a time of dwindling finances. Front Elevation are able to offer a range of procedures that capitalises on over 25 years experience in the industry.
Paul Scott offers an all-round experience pool to draw on gained from the whole supply chain working for a range of businesses covering most disciplines within the construction sector. Past employers have included Cakebread Robey (now owned by Jewsons) who are a major supplier and distributor of light-side building materials, where Paul was a buyer at their Enfield Head office responsible for sourcing all elements in the bathroom sector from Ideal Standard, Armitage Shanks, Twyford plus brassware from many parts of Europe. These were supplied to a range of house builders and all of the Cakebread Robey branch network.
The next step was with Ensor Sales assisting in managing their London depot supplying a range of heavy-side materials to builders merchants inc such diverse items as cotton scrim, clay drainage, cast iron access covers and angle bead. From there it was Duct & Access Covers Ltd a manufacturer of galvanised steel access covers based in South Wales. During his time at the company he was involved in some very high profile projects including drainage gratings for The All England Tennis Club in Wimbledon and access covers for Hong Kong Airport. During this time he set up trading agreements with specialist drainage merchants such as Cooper Clarke and Drainline Supplies (Hendricks Lovell). Duct & Access Covers was then sold on to Glynwed (now Saint Gobain)
Following on from there it was on to work for both of the merchants previously set up. Drainline Supplies in a Business development role selling their standard and bespoke drainage and access covers before joining Cooper Clarke in their ground engineering division. This involved promoting their Eco – Block recycled ground protection SUDS system as well as gas membranes and ground stabilisation. From there it was onwards and upwards (literally).
Lightning Protection into the M&E and FM market was an unlikely route but that was the next step. Working for Omega Furse (now Omege Red Group) it was selling Lightning Protection Systems and the ensuing service agreements all over the South East from their London and Brentwood office. Dealing with T.Clarke, MJN Colston, N G Bailey, Dudley Bower et cetera, as well as a string of main contractors and major industries such as Bass, Coca Cola, Tesco and M&S.
Still retaining a high level presence it was on to Harrison Thompson (Yeoman Rainguard) selling their brand of prestige aluminium rainwater systems along with the GRP and Cast Iron gutters and pipes. This involved breaking new sectors where he set up agreements with Potton (Now part of Kingspan) and lead their exhibition team at all of the UK Self Build & Renovation shows. Making an exhibition of himself.
Staying in Aluminium it was then on to Dales Fabrications the very well respected manufacturer of Prestige Aluminium Building Products. The role there involved the Sales & Marketing activity promoting their bespoke Aluminium, Fascia, Soffit, Coping and Brise Soliel systems to architects, specifiers, local authorities and education contractors. The position involved dealing on a cradle to grave basis with all of the major UK main contractors such as Kier, Laing O’Rourke, Willmott Dixon and BAM to name a few. Specialising later in the BSF sector (Building Schools for the Future) Dales fascia/soffit/brise soliel systems complimented many prestige schools, academies, colleges and universities. Paul also took over the role in Writing Copy, PR, Case Studies, Project Photography and Literature content and design. As such the seeds of Front Elevation were sown. A further stint at the Leicester based Aluminium Guttering Manufacturer, Aluminium Roofline Products, only acted as confirmation that a major requirement for cost effective marketing was required.
Having sold to many of the Major House Builders, Main Contractors, Roofing Contractors, M&E Contractors, FM Contractors, Groundwork Contractors, Landscape Contractors and Drainage Contractors it seemed a good time to move up to the next level as a consultant. The experience level is fairly unique having worked for Builders Merchants, Building Material Distributors, Manufacturers and a Specialist Electrical Contractor, he seems to have covered most bases.
