I have been a professional engineer for forty years and a chartered engineer since 1985. I have experience working in several industries and I bring this unusually broad experience to the field of building services engineering. I continue to run a successful building services practice (Synergy Consulting Engineers) where I have built an experienced and dedicated team of engineers delivering projects of all sizes in most fields of construction.
I am particularly adept at seeing past the rules-of-thumb to the underlying physical processes in order to understand what can go wrong in complex systems on a fundamental level. Long practice enables me to communicate what is happening in terms legal professionals can understand, with an awareness of what aspects have particular significance for them. I tend to rely strongly on the use of graphical presentation to illustrate engineering concepts simply and effectively. Where possible I will always look for alternative practical and economic solutions to any systems which require remediation. I can be most effective if instructed before disproportionate remedial works have been carried out.
I have been undertaking instructions as an expert since 1995, and in 2005 I was accredited by Cardiff Law School. I have advised on approximately 40 matters relating to Building Services Disputes and have participated in mediations and arbitrations. I have given evidence and been cross-examined many times in the High Court.

"First, thank you for preparing such a helpful report. Often technical reports are difficult to follow by a lay person but your report identifies the key issues and explains them in a clear and logical way such that even a lawyer like me can follow it.
I am sure that it will help the tribunal understand the issues very well and enable the tribunal to see a clear way through all the fog created by the defendant's correspondence."
