Here’s your Opus 4 team when they were younger. None of us can honestly say we wanted to do fit-outs and refurbishments when we grew up.

But when we realised we couldn’t be astronauts, princesses, pop stars and fighter pilots, we met each other and began to see we had a natural talent for creating great places for people to work.

We’re all very close, we know what makes each other tick and we love working together. We think that comes across in the work we produce and to the customers who become our friends.

Workplace Visionary

Daniel is the MD and driving force behind Opus 4. He’s passionate about all aspects of the business, but above all else, he’s focused on giving a great service to his clients.

He loves Formula One, has a penchant for nice watches and has recently become addicted to the Crime & Investigation Channel on TV! Daniel is something of a local hero, after making the papers when he dived into an ice cold lake to save a drowning dog!

The Man Who Shouts About Opus 4

Andrew is our Marketing Director  . He’s responsible for making sure Opus 4 gets noticed in both the real and online worlds. As well as new business, it’s also Andrew’s job to make sure all our regular customers feel loved and wanted.

Poet, philanthropist, rock star, striker, skateboarder, astronaut….Andrew is none of these things, but definitely a dreamer.

Loves It When A Plan Comes Together

Dave is our Operations Director – the man with the plan. He ensures each project we undertake is correctly priced and runs like clockwork. He directs each project with the same maxim, by only handing over a workspace that he himself would be proud to work in.

Outside work, Dave is an avid Manchester United fan.  At the wrong side of 40, and last kicking a ball in anger as a teenager, he still believes there’s a chance of making it as a United midfield playmaker.  He’s also a keen runner and competed in the Great Manchester Run.  He is yet to cross the finish line.

Keeping Everything In Its Place

Jonathan is our FD and one of the recent additions to our team.   He arrives with a strong track record working in the construction and property development sectors.

In a previous life, he worked in luxury retail, so it comes as no surprise that Jonathan has already established himself as Opus 4’s resident fashionista and is the trendiest man in the office.

Jonathan is passionate about Manchester and it’s rich cultural history and loves the music, architecture and general buzz of the city.  Outside work, he enjoys spending time with his son, playing tennis and keeping fit.

The Driving Force behind Our Driving Force

Mike is our Transport Manager and is also the custodian of ‘Sales Force One’.  Sales Force One is our mobile office, which gets our management team to meetings and enables them to work on the road.  He also picks up clients in SF1 and brings them to our office and has developed a cult following with many of them.

Before joining Opus 4, Mike had a long, distinguished career with the Metropolitan Police Force, working with the Protection Squad.  As you can imagine, he has many interesting stories, but if he told you, he’d have to kill you…

Makes It All Add Up

Denise is affectionately referred to as ‘the rottweiler’. This is on account of her tenacious ability to chase outstanding invoices and balance the Opus 4 books. Denise is the most animated member of the Opus 4 team and ensures there’s never a dull moment. She is often found breaking into a duet with Andrew or treating us to her acting skills. She recently fulfilled a burning ambition to ‘tread the boards’, making her debut in a local pantomime as you guessed it, a wicked witch.

Chris is just as caring at home too. He’s a devoted husband and father.  Although it’s wrong for dads to have a favourite child, Chris does.  His ‘baby’ is his 1984 MkII Golf GTI which he’s lovingly restored.

The Oracle

Paula is the lady who makes the office tick.   Although she doesn’t look old enough, Paula has been at Opus 4 from the start and it’s her brain that we pick with questions the rest of us have forgotten the answers to.

An avid pub quizzer, this is a girl who likes a pint too! As you can see Paula is a twin, but even she doesn’t know which one she is on this photo, which was taken on the film set of The Shining.

Service With A Smile

Tammy joined Opus 4 at the start of 2018 and in a few short months, has been promoted to our busy Contracts Team. She is bubbly, bright and does everything with a smile on her face and a positive attitude.

Back in the day, Tammy was something of a club chick, dancing on podiums with her hands in the air. As the years roll by, if Tammy tried to balance on a podium now, in her stiletto heels, with a prosecco in her hand, her night could end up in A&E.

A Design Obsessive

Alison has progressed with the business to become one of our key senior designers.   Alison’s flair, attention to detail and dedication to the customer are her key strengths.
Alison has some very peculiar eating habits where dry food and sauces can never be mixed. This has caused great amusement at the Opus 4 monthly takeaway nights!

I'll Be Ready - Never You Fear

Andy joins Opus 4 as our new Health & Safety Manager. No two people within the business can pronounce his surname the same way, so he’s affectionately been nicknamed ‘The Hoss’ in honour of his idol, David Hasselhoff. Andy served in the armed forces, stationed in Afhanistan, before forging a career in health and safety. He joins us from Warburtons Bakery.

When he isn’t watching Baywatch re-runs or joining his fellow compatriot, Emma, in singing old, Ukranian folk songs, Andy likes to take his young son to watch Man City.

Monika is our Furniture Administrator.   She is a dedicated and conscientious person who takes pride in her work and is gradually falling in love with poseur height tables, high back acoustic sofas, and trendy coffee tables.

Here She Comes To Save The Day

Emma is one of our creative sparks in the design team. She’s known to her close friends as ‘The Mouse’, but nobody seems to know why. Although she has been known to squeak if she has too much vodka.

By a strange coincidence, Emma was interviewed on and started on the same day as our H&S Manager, Andy, where it emerged both are part-Ukranian.
This prompted a Ukranian folk sing-song and a celebratory Ukranian brandy! Away from work, Emma loves the great outdoors and is a keen photographer.

Dean is a strength athlete and trainer, and competes at international level in powerlifting, strongman and stone lifting contests.  Dean is big on Opus 4's family-focused culture, but thus far, nobody has accepted his challenge to an arm-wrestling competition!

JESS MACRAE

The Queen Of All She Surveys

Jess recently joined the team to help us build on our continued growth.  In the short time she's been with us, Jess has proved to be the bubbliest Quantity Surveyors we've ever seen.

She's always smiling, but sadly for those in earshot, she's also often singing. Thankfully, she manages project costs better than her vocal chords!

Away from work, Jess loves to travel and is an ardent Sheffield Wednesday fan.  She can be found at Hillsborough leading the terrace chants.
