What will you bring to a project

I bring an extensive knowledge of a broad range of projects from education to defence. Having a combined hydraulic/mechanical background gives me a unique perspective on the design issues that affect both services.

My experience as a NABERS assessor gives me an understanding of the aspirational targets of the sustainable initiatives being developed for a project.

In addition, a personal interest in building services due diligence brings a focus on buildability, ease of maintenance and durability.

Overall, I have the depth of experience to talk to clients about the high level issues that often need to be resolved in the early days of schematic design.
