Sam Slade
I’m responsible for building 3D models and producing detailed design drawings including General Arrangements, Sections and Details inline with industry wide drawing and project standards for Structural Engineering and Temporary Works design. Fully compliant with BIM Level 2 I work in a fully collaborative model, using in house cloud surveys, external 3D models, 2D drawings or archive drawings to produce a clash free model and a set of structural/temporary works drawings that can be built.   I also work producing and developing in house families, standards and BIM for structural/temporary works design to streamline cost and productivity. I’m working towards using expanding our technical capabilities further to provide a more enhanced client experience by developing the use of Virtual Reality into design so clients can get a more personal feel to our design.

Philip Morley
Since graduating from Sheffield University in 1984 Philip has always been involved with building control industry. He has been a Chartered Building Surveyor since 2000 and worked with OnSite building control since 2013, becoming a Director in 2015. He now enjoys working with both clients and construction teams to help bring projects to life. Philip believes that Building Regulations and the Approved Documents are not just a guide to show compliance of a project, but the foundations of creative and innovative design. His 30 plus years experience in Construction and Building Control means he has seen and overcome the majority of problems that can present themselves - his belief is that no project should be rejected and that there is near-enough always a solution. Ultimately, Philip and his team can provide the most value to the project by being involved from an early planning stage.
