Ian Bugg - Project Manager
Ian, a project manager who has a background in retail. Has previously worked in the store and logistics side of marks and Spencer retail operations. Ian has worked with TRS since 2018, residing either at the office and warehouse operation on the refrigeration refurbishment and delivery of retail and refrigeration equipment. Qualified with the SSTS retail project management certification, Ian is experienced in running sites all over the UK whether that is for a single installation or removal or for projects with a larger scope be that complete or partial clearance or installation to a planned or sometimes immediate / urgent requirement.
New product lines have required Ian to manage complicated handling of bulky and heavy equipment both into and out of a variety of different scale environments. Ian was the project manager for the clearance of all waste from an empty 8 floor store in Liverpool city center recently. This most challenging project in a central pedestrian area, needed 300T of waste & combustible fittings to be moved from this prime site that had fallen into a state of dilapidation. TRS took this project on for a regular client Hilco, as the building's receiver trusted TRS to complete significant and challenging clearance in a short time frame, reducing the site's fire risk to an acceptable level as demanded by the underwriter and insurer. Ian has also managed other projects for the firm including clearances for HMV and Jager.
