Emmanuel is a lecturer in construction management at Solent University. He joined Solent University in 2017 from Nottingham Trent University (NTU) where he worked as a research fellow.

Emmanuel obtained his PhD from the School of Architecture, Design and the Built Environment, Nottingham Trent University. His research developed an approach to support construction stakeholders for rapid and successful implementation of the Last Planner System (a lean construction philosophy) for construction process improvement.

Before embarking on his PhD, he was awarded a distinction in his Master’s degree in Project Management (Construction) in 2013 at NTU. Prior to this, he obtained a Bachelor’s degree with 2.1 honours in Building from the University of Jos, and a Master’s degree in Construction Management from the University of Lagos, both in Nigeria.

Emmanuel is not only passionate about research, but also an active researcher and has worked on various funded projects. In 2014, Emmanuel worked on a funded research project valued at £15,000 for Highways England. The research examined the practice of Last Planner, collaborative planning and collaborative working practice across Highways England’s supply chains and produced a report with clear recommendation to improve current practice. In 2016 he worked on another funded project for Highways England, valued at circa £40,000. The research focused on understanding and defining what social value means for Highways England and its supply chain companies and finally developed a framework for evidencing social value within the design and delivery of infrastructure projects.

He has over six years’ practical experience in the construction industry, where he occupied various positions such as site engineer, construction manager and project engineer before venturing into academia and research.

Emmanuel is a member of the Chartered Institute of Building, UK; the Lean Construction Institute, UK; and the International Group for Lean Construction.
