who we are
about the partners

Mooney Kelly co-founder and senior partner David Mooney has over 25 years of construction experience. After completing his degree in Quantity Surveying in 1981, David joined a medium-sized practice, where he swiftly progressed to become an associate director. Since leaving that post in 1990 and founding Mooney Kelly, David has been involved in a number of very high-profile projects, including the commercial management of the £160m M&E component of the Channel Tunnel Rail Link, where he also headed up a dispute resolution team. In a further major rail project, David was the senior commercial manager, responsible for a team of 15-20 staff and £600m of packages, on the Jubilee Line extension.

David has a very hands-on approach to the projects he leads and rapidly conveys that ethos to commercial teams, both giving and expecting a high level of commitment. He has extensive experience of all standard terms of construction contracts, including the NEC.
