Martin has over 25 years experience in the design and management of a wide range of mechanical and electrical projects in many diverse market sectors. His career has encompassed projects from low energy offices to hospitals; research facilities to specialist military installations and private residences to large apartment blocks. All of which have given Martin a well rounded understanding of a huge range of systems and design approaches which allows him to apply the right system on the right project.

Working closely with clients, architects and other members of the design and construction teams Martin is responsible for ensuring quality solutions are delivered on time and on budget.

Martin has embedded low carbon, sustainable design principles into projects for many years. More recently, the climate emergency has required him to extend his skills to deliver net-zero carbon designs, both in operation and construction terms.

Over the last few years Martin has predominantly focussed on industrial, residential, offices and education projects. He has worked on a number of high profile developments for both public and private clients; some speculative and some directly for end users, therefore he understands the drivers for each and recognises that there is no one approach which is best for all.

In the education sector Martin has led many of the major projects from the Manchester office. From small extensions at private schools to £75m DfES funded multi-Academy projects, he has led schemes under a variety of funding mechanisms including the LSC Framework, the Academies Framework, BSF as well as independent appointments.

Martin has also been responsible for introducing BIM and Revit MEP into the M&E section of Ramboll, which he undertook as part of his role in the Best Practice team. This team promotes consistency, high standards and knowledge sharing across the whole of Ramboll.

St Matthew Academy

Education from start to finish — primary school to A level — is provided at this single complex, created through the Government's City Academies scheme. It's built on the playing field of an existing school, which remained open during construction. When the works were complete, the old school was demolished to make room for a new sports field.

Most of the teaching spaces are housed in two reinforced concrete wings, respectively two and three storeys high. The wings are neatly linked by an enclosed steel bridge and a triple height assembly hall. This and the sports hall are steel framed and clad in zinc tile and timber.

The assembly hall is spanned by a second enclosed bridge, so broad that it resembles a mezzanine floor. By suspending this structure from massive steel ...
