David is a Chartered Surveyor currently working within the Scottish Building Standards system, and is presently involved in a number of interesting projects including Stirling’s new £26 million Health Care Facility.
Much of his free time has been devoted to researching the effect of fire on thermally efficient walls containing polymeric insulation, and he hopes to complete a
PhD on this subject in the coming months. Study has been undertaken at Glasgow Caledonian University on a part time basis, with a series of fire tests carried
out at Edinburgh University’s laboratories.
He is a guest lecturer on GCU’s BEng (Hons) Fire Risk Engineering programme, and enjoys the challenges presented by sustainable development and
performance-based design in a fire engineering context.
