    Summary
    I can draw on 26 years post degree experience in mechanical building services engineering; many of which were spent on the design & supervision of highly serviced projects in the private sector, such as Bupa & Capio hospitals. I also have experience within the NHS, commercial, education, retail, leisure and residential sectors. I am experienced in working within ‘live’ buildings and minimizing the effect of services amendments to the incumbent occupants, whether in sensitive healthcare premises or high rise offices, and also undertaken several supervisory roles on a number of refurbishment projects either direct for the Client or for the Main Contractor.
