Why did you start FTS Engineering Answers?
It’s not new or revolutionary; I’ve been working and managing Engineering Analysis teams for bigger organisations for the last ten years. However, becoming independent will allow us to focus on our client’s questions and needs, therefore provides good value, high quality engineering advice.
What do you mean by Engineering Answers?
How do you work with your Clients to understand Engineering Question?
By focusing on the engineering question and learning what the limitations are in terms of budget and time-scales at the start of the project, we can use appropriate tools and introduce expertise as required to answer that question effectively and efficiently.
Can you answer all Engineering Questions?
What do you enjoy most about your job?
Which industries do you typically work in?
