My passion is learning about the development of innovative technologies in building services, and the benefits it can bring to our clients and their buildings.

My professional background

Since I joined DMA Engineers, I’ve been delivering electrical and communication infrastructure design for clients, helping them to achieve their overall project vision. During this time I’ve worked on a range of projects including commercial office spaces, hospitals, retail outlets and schools.

My passion is learning about the development of innovative technologies in building services, and the benefits it can bring to our clients and their buildings. This can be in the form of helping clients realise the benefits of Building Information Modelling (BIM) to new energy efficiency methods. As the electrical BIM leader for DMA, I help to ensure our electrical team has the latest resources and training to provide modelling that can benefit our client’s projects.
