Senior Partner

I help bridge the gap between engineering design and delivery, theory and practice. With each project my aim is to deliver the building services that the client wants, to bring to life the architect’s vision.

The most fantastic design can founder for the most mundane of reasons. My engineering focuses on the detail to make sure this doesn’t happen. I work within a project’s constraints to provide a low energy, sustainable solution to service the building.

As Head of Mechanical Engineering, I’ve worked on some of the practice’s biggest and most challenging projects, all with different complexities and needing a different approach. I lead a large team of engineers to deliver high quality mechanical design to deadline. The result is services integrated with the building’s architecture.

I also understand the commercial realties of construction. My design information and on-site delivery always aims to protect my client’s commercial interests, so that they get the building they want.
