Our People

Forge prides itself on its staff’s performance and our existing client relationships, which result in continued repeat business.

Our team offers a diverse and unique skill base, which includes former Engineers, Quantity Surveyor’s, Architect’s and Construction Managers. In addition many of our team have previously been clients and contractors, giving us a unique understanding of individual drivers and an insight in the wider project team. This experience enables us to deliver successful projects across a wide range of sectors.

Our core purpose is making life easy for people. We make the project personal and create trust by working collaboratively and professionally and have fun along the way.


James Brooks and Mark Handley combined to start Forge Venture Management in a desire to create a more personalised project experience, for both clients and colleagues.

With a breadth of experience in local and International projects, and unique perspectives from undertaking both contractor and client side roles, they provide a well balanced and complimentary partnership, with over 25 years combined experience.
