Independent consultants in their own right, Nicola Slater and Mark Johnston joined forces to create Cube Construction Consultants in 2019, after working on groundbreaking and innovative projects together at a former company, as well as enjoying varied separate careers within the property and construction industry.
Passionate about the built environment, the Cube team is motivated to develop working relationships where honesty and integrity encourage best practice to improve outcomes.
With complementary skills covering construction expertise, strategic business growth, project partnerships and training and development, Cube solves problems and creates opportunities for its construction clients.
A strategic planner and problem solver by instinct as well as expertise, Mark has spent over 25 years in the construction industry.
Motivated by a desire to emulate the good and remember the bad, he has a rare blend of practical knowledge, intuition and experience to create the conditions for success. Straight talking, empathetic and honest, Mark’s operational and delivery background enables him to develop strong working relationships based on integrity and trust to improve outcomes.
“Many construction professionals have the right formal qualifications but have had very little in terms of mentoring, training or monitoring. There is an expectation that they should be able to do their job even when they haven’t been given the right support to do so.
“Construction projects are complicated, have so many variables. What I do know is that with a small amount of process review, project audit feedback, mentoring on roles and responsibilities and clear bid input, most people and projects are better for it.”

Forging strong relationships, developing new and existing business and providing amazing customer experience is what has driven Nicola throughout her career.
A strategic thinker, equally happy to be “doing”, Nicola puts her energy and enthusiasm into focusing on solutions rather than problems, building partnerships, generating new and securing repeat business for Cube and its clients.
Nicola’s ability to see opportunities and create extraordinary connections with people has led to work on inspirational, innovative, ground-breaking construction and fit-out projects. She passionately believes that relationships based on trust, understanding and mutual respect are essential for success to follow.
“The greatest outcomes are achieved within environments where people can be both autonomous and collaborative. When experienced, professional people are given the opportunities, tools and support to be the best they can be, a great sense of personal responsibility and accountability results that reflects across everything.”

Complimented by Mark’s operational and delivery expertise, Nicola’s skill set of clear communication, strategic business development and client engagement provide solutions to motivate key partners, contractors and delivery team members, to focus in on project outcomes within a positive and optimistic environment.
