A time served military engineer, Mike Fairweather joined D2E from outside of the vertical transport industry 3 years ago.
His practical experience and technical knowledge afforded an easy transition into the industry. Mike’s hands on approach and willingness to learn enabled Mike to become a truly multi-disciplined engineer within the industry.
Initially training to become D2E’s escalator expert, Mike now concentrates on the management and portfolio of D2E's growing facade access client base. Having completed the SAEMA SAE inspector’s course, and having the previous plant engineering experience, it was an obvious choice for Mike to specialize within the facade access discipline. He has now been working within this side of the business for 18 months, and took to it like a “duck to water”.
Notable projects Mike has had key involvement in include project management for modernisation/refurbishment for Land Securities Retail, portfolio management and framework agreement contract for both RSMD and John Lewis Partnership, and health & safety audits in line with EN1808/BS6037 for Regent Street Management Direct, Land Securities and Brookfield.
Since joining D2E, Mike has completed an FdSc in Lift Engineering at Northampton University.
