Summary of Experience
Andy started work training as a utility surveyor at Technics Group. During his training he discovered a strong interest in the GPR aspect of these surveys, often volunteering to undertake various trial surveys using GPR.
Andy joined Sandberg in 2009 as a GPR Surveyor where he started using GPR to investigate the construction details of buildings. He developed these skills and began determining potential defects within concrete and other surveys such as rebar mapping, chimney flue surveys and void surveys.
Having furthered his skills, in not only GPR but structural engineering, Andy was promoted to Senior GPR surveyor in 2010. As Senior GPR Surveyor, Andy started taking responsibility for tendering for work and a greater role interacting with clients.
With the GPR team growing Andy’s role evolved, supporting the training of GPR surveyors and assistants. As a more office based team member Andy managed the quoting for and organising jobs on a daily basis and ensuring their timely completion to Sandberg’s high standard. Over the years he started helping in the day to day running of the department.
In early 2015 Andy was promoted to Associate. He continues to further his knowledge of GPR and is always interested in new way to utilise GPR in structural engineering.
