What will you bring to a project

My broad ranging experience across all engineering disciplines along with my wealth of operational expertise allows me to bring a strategic focus to the project with a view to the practical operation of the completed asset. With an eye for detail and a strong focus on sustainability and energy efficiency, I am particularly good at pre-empting problems to ensure post construction issues are minimized.
