Leadership Team

As a young engineer I had a very good mentor who passed on a great deal of experience. I now provide the same guidance to our young and talented engineers.

Summary of profile:

FLATT was a fairly young company when I joined in 2006 as an Associate Public Health Engineer. It was an exciting opportunity to build on the experience I had gained in the UK and Middle East including the iconic Kingdom Tower in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

The most attractive aspect of FLATT was its can-do and collaborative approach – all working together to produce excellence and not settling for less. We are now seen at the forefront of renewable energy and sustainable design for MEP solutions.

I lead teams on a range of schemes that are predominately in the residential and hotel sectors, whilst also overseeing all public health projects across the practice. My most significant projects include high rise and high end residential schemes like Regatta Quay and Royal Wharf – both very different cities, but with the same public health and environmental goals.

Outside of engineering

Outside of my day job, I enjoy cycling, playing the guitar (badly) and reading!

Key projects

  • Regatta Quay: Provision of solar array for hot water to meet sustainability targets.
  • Royal Wharf Phase 2: One of London’s largest Energy Centres to serve 3,500 units.
  • Vicarage Court: Replacement of heating, hot and cold water services to entire block of 106 dwellings.
