My professional background


As a senior engineer at DMA Engineers, I help clients to realise their goals by designing pragmatic and cost-effective mechanical services solutions. Whether it’s a Design and Construct project for a builder, or a public health project, I am always conscious of capital and operating costs and how it impacts my client’s needs.

As the Virtual Design and Construction Manager at DMA I help clients realise the benefits of Building Information Modelling (BIM). By utilising clash detection, model management and intelligent linking of design data, I am able to transform 3D models into vital assets in the design and construction process.

What creating inner beauty means to me

Inner beauty to me is taking a complex building services design solution and presenting it in a simple and eloquent way.
