Andrew Horton first started in the construction industry more than 30 years ago. After completing an ONC in civil engineering at the CITB centre in Norfolk, he went on to complete an honours degree in civil engineering at Edinburgh’s Heriot-Watt University. Sponsored by a large contractor, Andrew also gained valuable experience at the ‘coal face’, including 18 months as a site engineer on multi-million-pound projects in London and Wales.
He has 25 years’ design office experience on various refurbishment and conversion work projects, as well as new-build domestic and commercial properties. Andrew has a passion for practical problem solving whether utilising the latest sophisticated analysis software or traditional design methods to deliver sympathetic and pragmatic solutions. Andrew is a member of Institution of Civil Engineers and is a certified member of the Association for Project Safety (CMaPS) overseeing the company’s CDM duties.
Away from the office, engineering and checked shirts, Andrew loves a digger and any old bits of machinery. He is currently extending and renovating an old barn into a family home for his wife and daughter. Andrew also likes to watch rugby, ride motorbikes, the very occasional (annual) round of golf and more checked shirts!
