Our team

Alan Haworth

Site Manager

E: ahaworth@weareease.com

M: 07484013835

Alan is one of our more experienced employees who has gained a wealth of knowledge and experience over the years he has worked in the construction industry. Starting out as a young apprentice working alongside many skilled tradesman to becoming one of our senior site managers that brings passion to every project he works on. Working for Ease, Alan has also furthered his knowledge by completing Site Management Training Schemes. Outside of work he enjoys walks on the beach and holidays in the sun. His football knowledge is equally as extensive as his construction knowledge, and never misses an opportunity for a pint and footy down the local pub.

Andrew Conibear

Site Manager

Andy has quite literally spent a lifetime in the construction industry, beginning at the age of 14 in a bench jointer’s, building gun carriages, sliding sash windows and stairs. An apprenticeship in carpentry and joinery followed, working on multi-million-pound one off builds to new build housing estates, refurbs, and everything in between, scaling the career ladder to Site Manager with his focus set high on becoming a senior project manager looking after multiple projects.

Downtime is spent walking his springers or competing with his 3 horses: wife and children. Albeit Andy’s preference is throwing himself down hills and over jumps, rocks, and tree roots on his mountain bike. When not being active his love is Formula 1 and anything sports related, especially if it’s got an engine but most importantly his biggest love is being a family man.

Andrew Doidge

Senior Quantity Surveyor

E: adoidge@weareease.com

M: 07484 035027

Andrew is fondly known to most of the team as ‘Anders’. Having been an employee at Ease for the last five years, he has commercially delivered some of our most complex builds and has demonstrated his ability to work closely with investors and clients alike. Anders is considered a key member of the Ease team, and has recently acquired further accolades by qualifying through the completion of his post graduate degree which has inspired him to become a chartered member of the RICS in the foreseeable future. When not wearing a hard hat, you’ll be sure he’ll be wearing a golf hat! As a current single figure golfer, he dedicates most of his spare time playing the most prestigious courses around Devon and Cornwall

Andy Cook

Director

E: acook@weareease.com

M: 07484 035032

Andy is a Director of Ease with years and years (he says 29, but here in the office we all know it’s more!) of construction and contracting experience on some very recognisable projects across the region. After his first project representing the client he recognised an opportunity to provide a much more client focused method of delivery, which is what Ease does. Ease now offer a building experience unique to the rest of the market, driven by open honest values. Andy really enjoys the early stages of projects establishing the Team and developing the designs, buildability and costs. The manic schedule requires a healthy antidote: three young children probably isn’t it and neither is coaching the local Under 9’s rugby team, but it doesn’t stop him doing it!

Craig Kelly

Site Manager

A new addition to the Ease family, Craig joins us with over 25 years of experience in the construction industry originating from a carpentry background. His portfolio is quite impressive and spans many hotel and commercial projects as well as one off bespoke residential projects.

Outside of work it’s all about family time enjoying and exploring all of Cornwall’s offerings coupled with a bit of sport to let off some steam, football and trail running being the sport of choice.

Dafydd Hollyman

Director

E: dhollyman@weareease.com

M: 07792 351393

Dafydd is a Director of Ease with over 20 years of construction experience which encompasses the delivery of multiple high end commercial, private and infrastructural projects all over the nation; which include stadia, multi storey office developments, the Eden Project and many other bespoke residential developments. It is hard to ignore his passion and enthusiasm for project management and delivery which is only one of the many skills and attributes his mantra possesses. With no shortage of qualifications, there’s very little that he hasn’t experienced and has all the answers at his disposal. Clients that have worked with him can’t help but praise his efficiency and consistent work ethic to ensure his team deliver projects under budget whilst conveying quality within sometimes difficult timescales. To balance his high octane energy drink that is Ease, he coaches his son’s U15’s Saltash RFC rugby team; and couldn’t be happier than when he’s playing 18-holes with friends on the golf course… unless of course he’s building on one!

Dominic De Wolf

Assistant Project Manager

Dom is a recent addition to the Ease team but brings with him over 20 years’ experience in the construction industry. He started out on civils projects as a site engineer, before moving into commercial and domestic carpentry work. Having gained a degree in building surveying and construction management, accredited by both the CIOB and RICS, he is continuing his professional development by working to be a full member of both bodies.

With an eye for technical detail, he brings his love of problem solving to his work and is happiest out on-site managing projects. In his spare time, Dom enjoys spending time with his family, preferably on a mountain bike or in the water. A good deal of time is also spent ferrying his children to sporting events and supporting from the touchline.

Gary Throne

Quantity Surveyor

Gary has recently joined the We are Ease team, coming in from a main contracting background where he built on his bachelor’s degree qualification and developed his knowledge and skills on large scale intricate projects in residential and commercial sectors in locations such as London, Surrey, and Devon to name a few.

After sampling life in a multitude of locations, (originally resided in Northern Ireland and studied in Scotland) he has decided to settle in sunny Devon where he enjoys spending time on the coast and moors equally, with the better half and the newly added puppy to the family.

With a keen interest in almost all sports, Gary’s main passion/pastime is spent tinkering on his project car(s) and getting them to the track to chase that adrenaline buzz, whilst at the end of the day also having that proud feeling of ‘hard work paying off’ which can equally be transferred to his professional career, he is not shy when it comes to rolling up the sleeves and getting stuck in to achieve the desired results.

Jude brings to the business a wealth of experience, most of her working life has been spent as an executive personal assistant, with her area of expertise being in finance and marketing across the construction, manufacturing and education sectors.

Liam has run some of our bigger projects and for someone so young has an impressive portfolio. He is currently going through the process to become a member of the chartered institute of building.

Tom Hollyman

Assistant Project Manager

Tom aspires to become an experienced construction project manager, his determination to expand his knowledge and his enthusiasm and desire to expedite high quality work is outstanding.
Working part-time as an Assistant Project Manager has allowed Tom’s knowledge within the industry to grow exponentially. This will help him and become the catalyst to his success as he enrols onto Bristol UWE’s Construction Project Management course this September.

When Tom’s not trying to develop his knowledge within the construction industry you are likely to find him on a rugby pitch or in a gig, his crew were recently ranked 13th at the World Pilot Gig championships in the Isles of Scilly and if rugby and gig rowing weren’t sporty enough, Tom can be found on a golf course, at a ski resort or riding the waves around the Cornish coast!

Will Wears

Quantity Surveyor

Will has recently joined the team at Ease, having made a career change from working in education and finance. Wills background has given him a keen eye for figures and the skills to manage complex budgets and financial reports; all of which are aiding his development as a Quantity Surveyor. Building on his bachelor’s degree in Sciences, Will has also completed his MSc in Building Surveying, covering a wide range of subjects and culminating in his dissertation on the conversion of disused chapels for residential use. He’s now keen to progress further, including looking to complete his CIOB chartership whilst learning the ropes at Ease.

Based in Cornwall, Will can be found either entertaining his two sons out and about in the countryside and beaches, or slowly attempting to complete the restoration of his old sailing boat. He also enjoys tennis, non-league football and cooking – especially if it involves Keith Floyd or spices. Either will do.

Zac Booth

Site Manager

Zac lived in London up until 9 years ago, until he was drawn to Cornwall. Starting on site at the tender and impressionable age of 16, he now has over 30 years of experience in his back pocket. Working his way through to Site Manager, most of his time has been spent on the tools in heavy civils: demolition of tower blocks with regeneration packages; flood control works for the Environmental Agency; cliff retention and netting; sea defence and other large civils packages, often in awkward locations (it is Cornwall!). He has also managed the build of luxury bespoke homes and commercial builds.

Zac is currently working towards his Level 6 NVQ in construction Site Management. When not studying, he can be found walking his dogs or growing rare Lilly’s and chillies in his garden.
