Steven has over 18 years of experience on a wide range of projects at senior level and is passionate about good design and in particular operationally led design solutions. Having worked extensively across Ireland & the UK, Steven has a considerable amount of knowledge regarding planning policy & protocol across many different sectors, particularly the Emergency Services sector, which he now leads for HLM. Steven has successfully delivered a wide range of retained, whole time, tri-service and mixed use stations with stand alone training centres and logistics support buildings.

Steven’s role as Design Team Leader on the Northern Ireland Fire & Rescue Service’s new Omagh Community Fire Station saw the project develop successfully through the focus on operationally led design and following a number of workshops and extensive engagement with the Fire Service to understand their specific needs and that of the local community. Steven has also recently delivered three new fire stations/head office facilities for Cornwall Fire & Rescue Service and further work is ongoing with the Royal Berkshire Fire and Rescue Service following the completion of Hungerford Fire Station last year to deliver a four year framework of replacement stations.
