Colin McQueston

Background & Experience

Colin is a founding director of Coplan and was previously a Development Director at St Modwen Properties PLC, During his time at St Modwen, Colin was involved in a number of large mixed used projects including Edmonton Green Shopping Centre, Wembley Central and the Elephant and Castle Shopping Centre.

At Coplan, Colin is leading on a number of our major redevelopment projects, including two major schemes in Bedford, a further scheme in Herne Bay and a further scheme in Bromley-By-Bow. Colin’s approach to all his schemes is to be completely hands on, and is heavily involved in the planning, pre-let and the funding process, as well as close liaison with our respective local authority partners.

One of Colin’s key strengths is his ability to deal with people from all levels, and is well respected  by a number of key corporate occupiers  across a number of sectors. Potential demand for any of our schemes, can be established quickly through Colin’s black book!

He inspires everyone with his positive, Gallic charm and has a core belief that the correct conclusion is always achieved… That said his wife has not yet agreed for his young son to have an Irish passport!!
