- About TNG
Building Services Engineering is often a unknown career option for students; unlike the more recognisable roles in Construction, such as an Architect, Structural Engineer, Quantity Surveyor or Civil Engineer. It is therefore, important that TNG helps to raise awareness, as this is vitally important to our success.
We need to help make more young people aware of this important role to encourage them to pursue a career in Building Services Engineering. Hopefully, these efforts will replenish the talent pool so that companies like us, can maintain a sustainable workforce and expand our businesses.
As some students wait for their exams results, others start thinking about their future career paths. Each year, TNG provides work experience placements to students over the summer months to help them make career decisions.
This year, Jevan Hales from Oasis Academy in Lord’s Hill, Southampton, started the ball rolling. Jevan was the first student through our front door; followed closely by Daniel Head from Hounsdown Secondary School in Totton. Tom Lush started his placement with us today and is from Barton Peveril College.
More information about a career in Building Services Engineering can be found on the CIBSE website.
TNG is delighted to announce that Senior Mechanical Engineer, Martin Shepherd, recently gained Low Carbon Consultant accreditation.
This accreditation means that Martin is certified by CIBSE as being competent to minimise energy use and carbon emissions from buildings both in design and operation.
We now have two certified Low Carbon Consultants at TNG, Martin and Katarzyna Kopacz; they are the only two currently registered Consultants in Southampton city centre.
Both Martin and Kat are able to:
> Confirm Building Regulation Part L Compliance;
> Advise on energy efficiency and conservation;
> Advise on, and design, low carbon and renewable technologies;
> Use passive design technologies to make the best use of shade and natural ventilation;
> Deliver the information needed to manage a building effectively and ensure that it continues to perform to its design intent after handover.
