Partner, Building Services Engineering
Chartered Building Services Engineer – BEng (Hons) CEng MCIBSE MIET with over 25 years’ experience in the industry.
Phil is Managing Partner for our Bristol and Cardiff Offices and leads our Building Services Engineering discipline, which has over 100 engineers based across 8 locations.
Phil balances his managerial tasks while remaining resolutely client and project focused.
He is very active in our defence and security sector and leads projects with the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, the MOD and Boeing Defence. As well as supporting these major clients, he also leads regional projects with regional design teams.
Phil says, “at Ridge we have the best of all worlds. We are a big practice that allows us to work on major infrastructure and building projects with many of the UK’s best clients; however, we remain agile and grounded and can flex our approach to deliver the smallest of projects. Working and maintaining local relationships with our longstanding clients is so important to us, and throughout our period of growth our customer base has developed, but our customer-focused approach remains the same. We are proud of our repeat business and longstanding relationships.”
We deliver projects of varying scale and complexity under the prestigious overseas Principal Support Provider (PSP) framework for the Defence Infrastructure Organisation (DIO). We have been appointed on behalf of both the Ministry of Defence and the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO). Ridge is one of six top international consultancies delivering services for the next four years on key international projects. This has evolved from our long-term relationship with the FCO successfully delivering projects across the globe from major international cities to locations in the developing world and areas of conflict.
Working on these Government projects and frameworks, as well as the Crown Commercial Service – Project Management and Full Design Team Services framework (CCS PMFDTS RM3741), means Ridge has the procurement vehicles available to deliver a wide range of defence, and other projects, for public-sector clients across the UK.
