Meet the Design Team: part 3

Nu-Heat’s Design Team pick up projects after your quote has been agreed. Initially they will be in contact to confirm all of the specific details and to obtain a greater level of information in order to be able to complete an accurate system design.

The team deal with a wide range of project types and successfully design unique, bespoke systems to meet requirements. They’re a team with a varied working week, constantly solving unusual and challenging situations that require the Designers to come up with intelligent solutions to complex heating scenarios.

Following on from our last post, we find out a bit more about Tom, Terry, Julie and John.

How long have you been at Nu-Heat and what did you do before?

James M: I’ve been here for 4 years now. I studied Architectural Engineering at Cardiff University before joining Nu-Heat, initially as part of the Technical Support Team.

Clarke: Just over 2 years. I started out in the Technical Support Team having been at university before joining Nu-Heat, studying Sports Technology. I also spent four years working for the Civil Service in a customer service role.

Adam T: Around 7 years. I used to manage a factory which produced timber frame houses.

Adrian: 13 years. Previously I worked as a Production Engineer for a military radio manufacturer.

What’s the best thing about being a part of the Design Team?

Adrian: I really enjoy dealing with the customer, especially on the large and more complicated projects. I know we have ethically and professionally designed their system from start to finish, so the customer has complete confidence that their heating system is going to work as required.

James M: Being part of a dedicated team – there’s a great mentality in the Design Team.

Clarke: The atmosphere within the team. Everyone works together to combine knowledge and expertise to be able to design and supply a quality heating system.

Adam T: The Design Team has a great atmosphere and togetherness that’s difficult to find in most companies.

Do you have a favourite product or project?

Adam T: I really enjoyed designing the Spinney project for the DIY SOS Children in Need special.

Adrian: My favourite project I’ve worked on is a multi-million pound refurbishment in Ascot for a Russian millionaire!

James M: It’s difficult to pick a project, although we do design a fair few ‘celebrity’ houses!

Clarke: The DIY SOS Big Build for Children in Need. I helped to install the UFH that we donated.

How long have you been at Nu-Heat and what did you do before?

Adam N:  I’ve been part of Nu-Heat’s Design Team for nearly 5 years now, but was a chef for over 17 years beforehand.

Chris:  12 years for me having previously been a Senior Draughtsman at an electrical switchgear company.

Matthew:  I’m new to the team.  I worked as a freelance typesetter, and still enjoy this in my spare time.

James L:  It’s nearly 10 years now!  Before joining Nu-Heat I spent some time kitchen-fitting having finished studying for my Maths degree.

What’s the best thing about your job?

James L:  We’re a close-knit team and it’s great to be a part of.  We produce a large volume of high quality designs but still remain relaxed.

Adam N:  It’s a great place to work.  That’s why so many of us have been here for 5-10 years.

Chris:  It’s a friendly team and everyone helps each other.

Matthew: Learning new skills (CAD) and generally feeling part of a team – I worked on my own for a long time before joining Nu-Heat!

Do you have a favourite product or project?

Chris:  My favourite project would be East Broomlands for M&J Ballantyne.  It’s been an on-going project and I have built up a really good relationship with them.

James L: LoPro®Max is a great product.  It’s low profile with a high heat output, making it a really good UFH solution for refurbishments with lower levels of insulation.

Adam N:  I like the neoStat. You can control your heating in conjunction with the neoHub from your phone giving the control you would expect in this day and age when everything is done on the go.

Matthew:  It’s a little early to say!

In our next Meet the Team, we’ll be speaking with a few more of our Designers: James Morfey, Clarke, Adrian and Adam Thomas.
