I am a corporate member of the Association of Building Engineers and hold a BSc degree in Building Surveying from Birmingham University.  Since joining Building Control in 2007, I have obtaining my CIOB Level 4 Diploma in Building Control and currently studying to become a LABC Level 5 Building Control Surveyor (UKASS accreditation pending).

Prior to joining Local Authority in 1993, I worked within the private sector working within a small building firm and 4 years with Bovis Construction on commercial projects.  Since joining Local authority in 1993, I worked in Environmental Health as a Housing Officer dealing with a wide spectrum of tasks from renovation/DFG grants to Landlord and Tenant enforcement. 

I have over 15 years’ experience in Building control, since joining in 2007 specialising in sustainability and energy efficiency, I am accredited with Elmhurst Energy to carry out Energy Assessments (SAP/EPC) under Part L1 of the Building Regulations. I was also a BRE as a licensed Code for Sustainable Homes Assessor now known as the Home Quality Mark scheme.

Due to covid the service being provided has had to be adapted and has allowed new opportunities to open within Building Control and allow me to join the Plan Checking team.  I still provide the Energy Efficiency (On-construction SAP/EPC) service together with water usage calculations and excessive glazing calculations.
