When Andrew Smith started Smith Consult in 2012, he wanted to create a practice which was straight-talking and down to earth, as well as technically advanced and able to tackle anything. Smith Consult are very lucky to have a fantastic team of like-minded people who bring many years of experience in all aspects of building services engineering.
Introducing The Team
Having worked within building services for over 25 years, Andrew has worked on a huge variety of project types. As one of our Directors, Andrew drives the company forward and encourages a progressive and dynamic team. Still manages to fit in some mountain biking and skiing from time to time.
Dave joined us at Smith Consult in 2016 following 20+ years in the industry. He made his mark and became a Director when we moved to our new offices in Clevedon in July 2018. Dave brings an impressive combination of practicality and innovation and a calm and ordered management approach. He also puts up with Andrew’s obsession with converting Dave to becoming a Neil Diamond fan.
Founder with Andrew in 2012, Melanie is our Finance Director. With a background in IT and a slight fixation with spreadsheets, Melanie is never happier than when the team ask her to automate project processes to make them more efficient. Loves food and loves skiing and preferably combining the two.
Our newest Director Rich, promoted in 2021, joined the team in 2018 and has impressed us all with his considerable knowledge and unflappable approach. Rich is our Mechanical and Sustainability Lead, a Chartered Engineer with Engineering Council UK and a Low Carbon Energy Assessor- EPC Level 5. Currently holds the office record for the fastest 10km loop round the Kenn Moors and is a founder member of Fitness Friday.
Our team are friendly and professional and will make sure they take the time to understand project and Client needs right from the start. Clients can be confident that our engineering solutions will be practical, appropriate and efficient.
Our practical approach means we like to understand how things will work and the technology which makes this happen. Current in-office design technologies include AutoDesk Building Design Suite, incorporating AutCAD Revit MEP and 3DS Max. Also IES software (Integrated Environmental Solutions). We believe these are the future for successful, holistic engineering. We are committed to sustainable engineering and alternative energy.
Project experience ranges across many business sectors including commercial, education, residential, healthcare, public sector and leisure. Equally happy with smaller scale and high value contracts, we provide high quality consultancy services and build long term relationships with our Clients.
Smith Consult have an honest and straightforward outlook. We turn projects around quickly whilst working to realistic deadlines and we don’t make promises we can’t keep.
