Howdy fellas, I work for a university as part of the mechanical engineering squad. I served an apprenticeship originally as a plumber and found that I loved gas work, so then went on to serve a second apprenticeship with British Gas as a technical engineer. Currently I am responsible, along with 4 other guys, for maintaining and repairing all the uni heating and ventilation stock ( No AC as it never gets hot enough in Scotland for that!) I'm interested in all aspects of the trade and find the experiences of people from different parts of the world to be fascinating, hence why I'm here. Hopefully I can learn from you fellas (or lassies!) and maybe I could be of help to some of you.
