With over 10 years’ experience as a Specification Sales Manager Rob understands the needs of the Specifier and Architect
Rob began working within the construction sector at the age of 21. Working closely with Specifiers and Architects he ensures the perfect glazing solution is provided.
Frequently presenting CPD’s and aiding Architects is Rob’s passion. A recent project Scriptor Court – London needed to ensure a clear visual clarity whilst reducing the overall U-Value. Rob suggested the use of a low iron e glass which would maintain the visual clarity of the glazing project. The final U-Value result was 1.868 W/m2k which was within specification.
Rob mentions “The initial specification is vital to any project. Often the Architect is required to work within tight regulations, this is why understanding the specification is key as it allows me to offer a bespoke glazing package suitable for purpose.”
