We recently welcomed Andrew Buck to the growing team in the Manchester office. Andrew has an MSc in Fire Safety Engineering (with Distinction) along with over 2 years’ experience in the Fire Engineering industry. He also holds a BEng in Chemical Engineering (1st Class Honours).
Andrew further developed his interest in Fire Engineering working as a Graduate Fire Engineer in Manchester, primarily focusing on producing residential fire strategies. He has also gained site experience analysing the Nitrogen Distribution System on a top tier COMAH site.
During his MSc, Andrew undertook a dissertation researching how the toxicity of smoke produced from enflamed insulation materials varies with combustibility classifications and why these materials were used in the UK. Producing the dissertation helped Andrew gain a valuable insight into various fire testing methodologies.
“I am happy to join DFC at such a pivotal point in my career, I have thoroughly enjoyed meeting the team virtually, and I look forward to working with these friendly, enthusiastic and talented colleagues.”
Andrew has traded his daily commute for walking and running near his home, below you can see Andrew in Delamere Forest.
