I love seeing a job go from a conceptual vision to an actual building, and I love playing a part in this process
Technical director, soon to become the Managing director
After leaving university in 1997 I wanted to combine my technical skills together with my shop floor apprenticeship experience in structural steelwork, Elland Steel gave me the opportunity to develop within the drawing office.
