  • Built with:
    • Attention to detail and delivery
    • Making work enjoyable
    • Developing strong relationships

My initial draw to services started back in secondary school days where I had a part time job fabricating and installing ductwork. This led me to college to complete HND Diploma in building services. I then spent 5 years in a building services practice designing and drawing services. The practical early education of hands on installation work with college learning and design gave me invaluable experience to progress my career. I left Ireland for 18 months to see the world and worked in Christchurch NZ on the famous art gallery as the mechanical PM for managing the HVAC installations. It was nearing project completion that I met my wife who persuaded me to come to London which was in 2003. I spent seven years as a TSM with a competitor before joining BW in 2010. I have worked as senior TSM until recently being promoted to head up the TSM department to bring consistency and high standards to the BW TSM’s delivering our BW projects.
