Our Trainer is a Tunnel Ventilation Expert and a well qualified and chartered engineer with 20 years of experience in international infrastructure projects.

He has been involved with numerous international tunnel projects from early inception, planning, design, procurement until installation, testing, commissioning and operation. From a strong technical background in tunnel fire, life safety, aerodynamics, climate, mechanical equipment and tunnel ventilation, his role has expanded to include MEP approval processes such as Requirement Management and BIM implementation Strategy and Project Risk Management. Which ensures that the very complex systems vital to the infrastructure are delivered fully working, compliant and can be approved by the appropriate authorities.

In addition to his professional work he has been an active member of the international tunnel community and has been invited as guest and keynote speaker for several conferences and technical institutions giving presentations on a range of topics such as tunnel safety, design management and M&E in infrastructure projects. In addition, he has co-led the activity group “Regulations and best practice” in COSUF (Committee on Operational Safety of Underground Facilities) under ITA in over ten years.

Summary:

    • •Extensive experience in tunnel ventilation and mechanical aspects of Metro systems, Rail and Road tunnels
    • Specialized in Tunnel Ventilation and aero and thermodynamic analysis. Undertaken numerous numerical simulations and calculations on tunnel systems
    • Tunnel ventilation and Fire, Life Safety expert
    • Involved in +30 projects worldwide including Europe, Asia, Australia and the Middle East
    • Specialising in Mathematical Modelling and Numeric Simulations
    • Experienced in site surveys, FAT & SAT test.
