Technical Director, Fire Safety
Adam leads the delivery of our fire safety services to our clients across the Midlands, as part of our fire engineering team which is one of the largest of its kind in the UK.
Adam is immersed in the local region, with experience of high-profile schemes across the commercial, education and residential sectors. These include a housing-led regeneration project at the former Birmingham City University Campus in Perry Barr, where he led the fire strategy works (RIBA Stages 2 to 5) on a site that will ultimately provide in excess of 1,400 homes and has a construction value of over £500m.
He has a keen interest in later living apartments for the elderly, and has previously developed a standardised fire strategy design for a large retirement village provider, later used as the baseline for all their future developments in England.
Adam’s experience in the commercial sector includes acting as the fire strategy lead for the 50m swimming pool during the construction of the £42m Moorways Sports Village in Derby.
During the pandemic, Adam was responsible for producing the fire strategy as the NEC Birmingham was converted into a temporary 4,000 bed Nightingale field hospital, which won the CIBSE Project of the Year Award.
Adam's strengths lie in the various design guidance and codes, which he uses to successfully negotiate and agree non-standard fire strategy designs where they do not meet prescriptive guidance.
Adam has a Master's Degree (MEng), with a focus on civil and structural engineering.
