Simon was previously project manager for a district heating network specialist and before that contracts manager for a housing-based M&E services provider.
Simon has worked on major UK projects including a new energy centre and district heating pipework for the Ladderswood estate redevelopment in Enfield and 13 new-build schemes for leading developers.
The former soldier, who lives in Kettering, is currently managing a contract to manufacture, supply and install mechanical services for a new 300-home housing scheme at Lea Bridge Road in Leyton for housebuilder Hill.

Founded in Birmingham in 1890, J S Wright designs and builds mechanical and electrical services for the hotel, residential, social housing, student accommodation, leisure and commercial sectors.
