This month, we’ll be visiting Discovery Park in Sandwich, where you’ll be able to network with others while enjoying a variety of Breakfast Baps and Pastries.

The Kent Construction Focus Group (KCFG) is a one-stop-shop for local businesses to discuss the future of Kent development, giving companies access to local knowledge, expertise and contracts. KCFG promotes the future role of Kent land development and construction businesses in the growth and development of Kent and its environment.

Hosted by members of the KCFG committee, Cheryl Causebrook and Ella Brocklebank.

Mark Houliston, Canterbury Archaeological Trust

With over 30 years of commercial experience, Mark has a proven record in setting up and delivering a wide range of archaeological and cultural-heritage projects. By looking at schemes in detail and predicting potential problems in advance, Mark has successfully helped many clients avoid excessive costs and unnecessary delays.

Mark started his career with Canterbury Archaeological Trust back in the mid-1980s. He returned four years ago as Director of Commercial Services having spent time working for and running a number of UK-based archaeological companies.

Canterbury Archaeological Trust was founded in the late 1970s and over the years has developed a strong reputation for quality. A particular strength has been the delivery of added-value through public engagement and outreach. During recent years increasing emphasis on technological innovation, the development of management systems and the adoption of policies in areas such as net-zero and sustainability, has pushed the Trust to new hights, emphasising its role as Kent’s premier, professionally-registered, archaeological company.
