Managing Director, FCABE MRICS MIFireE

My work background:
Following ten years’ service in local authority, I’d like to say that I’m a leading figure in the field of private sector building control. I’m a Fellow of the Chartered Association of Building Engineers, and a Member of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors and the Institution of Fire Engineers. Prior to founding the business in 1996, I operated as the Principal Consultant of the Building Regulation Consultancy Service – a position which I held for ten years. As a building regulation consultant and fire safety engineer, the work revolved around the application and interpretation of building regulations, fire precautions and other legislation. I also provided advice and guidance on a vast range of different and complex issues and projects, including Crown properties, large mixed-use and multi-storey buildings.
