Colin leads Cundall's fire engineering specialism.

Colin joined Cundall in 2006 and leads the Fire Engineering Team. He is based in the Manchester office, but supports all Cundall offices, both in the UK and abroad.

Colin is a Chartered Engineer with the Institution of Fire Engineers and has been involved in a wide range of projects in a number of different countries, including UAE, Qatar, England and Wales, Scotland, Ireland and China. He is proficient in a number of different fire safety codes, and is able to identify where alternative approaches based on fire engineering principles may provide and more innovative design without compromising of the safety objectives of the fire strategy, both in terms of life safety and property protection.
