Lift Consultant within the Glasgow office of TÜD SÜD Dunbar Boardman
Studied Electrical and Electronic Engineering then Corporate management at Postgraduate Level. 30 years experience within Lift Industry
Began with an apprenticeship following School, I always enjoyed electronics, mechanics and computers and this seemed like a natural route.
Lift modernisation/replacement project management and technical codes and standards
Developing specifications, equipment surveys, working with clients to assist them in developing their ideas or providing advice to help resolve problems.
Working on projects from concept to completion but where every day brings something different and challenging
I’ve seen lots since I started in the industry. From relay controls to microprocessors, machine room less lifts, regenerative drive systems and destination control systems.
A rapid increase in connected technologies such as IOT (Internet of Things). There lots of scope for data collection and monitoring which will help us and our clients to understand how to develop predictive maintenance strategies and understand real world usage data for different lift systems.
Doing everything I used to do face to face using online meetings. It’s great for sharing documents and files but It’s just not as enjoyable.
