The directors


Lee Jordan

An experienced Consultant Surveyor, Lee has worked for an impressive list of major clients including Mace, Bovis Lend Lease, Connaught, Taylor Woodrow, Multiplex and BAA on projects as challenging as Heathrow Terminal 5, and the RBS Edinburgh HQ. During his career, Lee has undertaken the responsible role of Commercial Director for companies with turnover exceeding £20 million.

Lee's vision as one of CLoSE's founding directors is to provide clients with a first class service focused on achieving results and getting the job done.

When not working or with his family, Lee is a keen follower of most sports, including being a part owner of the 2009 English Greyhound Derby winner, Kinda Ready.


Colin Macgregor

Colin is a RICS-qualified and chartered Quantity Surveyor and has been a board director and one of the major shareholders in CLoSE since 2009. He began his career in South Africa and spent several years at leading international practice Davis Langdon before relocating to the UK in 2000.

While in the UK Colin has taken up further senior management roles within the industry, principally in the contracting side of quantity surveying, first as a Commercial Manager and then Area Commercial Director for a prominent PLC. Colin is well versed in both the professional and contract sides of quantity surveying and has an invaluable understanding of commercial management, contract law, cost planning, client relationship management, procurement, tendering and dispute resolution.

Focused, committed and with a notably strong eye for detail, Colin’s responsibilities at CLoSE include business development and financial management. Away from the office, Colin enjoys spending time with his wife and two children as well as fly fishing, reading and a round of golf when time permits.


Danny Welch

Danny began his career as a Quantity Surveyor working for a medium size new build organisation on projects including Cannon's Health Clubs, Bestway and CALA Homes.

In 2003 Danny joined a national main contracting organisation in the social housing market where he was responsible for an order book of £70million, including major clients across the Midlands and Home Counties. In 2009, he was given the additional responsibilities of area management covering client relationship, operations and commercial aspects of the area business units.

In 2010 Danny brought all of the experience and expertise developed in these roles to CLoSE, joining as a director. Danny is a member of RICS and was invited in 2014 to act as an assessor on its SPR review panel.

When not working Danny enjoys spending time with his wife and two children, and when time permits is also a keen sportsman playing football and the odd round of golf.
