About Berkeley Projects

Berkeley Projects was formed in 1972. Since then we have become one of the leading design and construction management companies. Our work ranges from major corporate and hotel fit-outs, through to the supply of individual items of equipment.
We plan and implement complete catering projects working with specialist teams to ensure compliance with budgets, regulations and timescales. We can combine the requirements of food service with contemporary or classic designs to provide practical solutions.

Comprehensive Experience

At Berkeley we provide a complete service for corporates, architects and building contractors. Our ability to develop effective designs together with the experience of our project team provides a unique service and over the last 30 years that team has perfected all the skills needed to ensure a first class result.

Meet the Team

Richard White

Managing Director

Richard joined Berkeley Projects in 1988 as an estimator and quickly moved into contract management handling projects in excess of £1 million. As a Project Manager Richard’s ability to deal with people and co-ordinate various aspects of a contract ensured him Directorship in 1993 and subsequent appointment as Managing Director in 1996. Richard is involved in all areas of the business ensuring every aspect is adequately resourced and maintaining client satisfaction.

Phillip Denne

Contracts Director

Phillip joined Berkeley Projects in 2001 with the experience of working for many years as a project manager undertaking full turn-key style refurbishments, all orientated around the catering sector, finally moving on to working with a leading kitchen ventilation company. With this knowledge and the experience gained over the years by managing numerous prestigious projects, Phillip was appointed as Contracts Director at the beginning of 2015. His attention to detail is second to none and he achieves a very high standard in all he does. Phillip is now a fundamental part of the business, managing new projects and client facing from the outset.

Mark Jeffrey


Mark joined Berkeley Projects in 1992 bringing with him a thorough knowledge, technical expertise, design, and project management skills from within the Catering Industry. Mark rapidly became a Senior Project Manager, a role where his management and organisational skills were used to great effect with the current team. Since becoming a Director in 2003, Mark has used his knowledge and specific technical skills to effectively oversee and direct all projects to a successful conclusion, for both the client and project team. Mark has remained a constant strength within Berkeley Projects with a proficient approach to all elements of the business. Mark’s ability to liaise with both client and contractor, along with his own staff and other trades, ensures the smooth running and a positive outcome to all his projects.

Gillian Edgar

Financial Controller

Gillian joined Berkeley Projects in 2014 as the new Financial Controller, a crucial part of any business. Gillian has since streamlined the accounts system and restructured the accounts team to create an efficient and proactive department. With Gillian’s vibrant personality and excellent responsive skill set, further subtle changes have vastly improved the day to day operations. Gillian conducts a firm but fair approach with all tasks, to deliver constant analysis and reporting structure across all areas of the business.
