Sustainability & Innovation Experts Nick Milestone and Tim Doubell Join UK LGSF Market Leaders Sigmat
Leeds based offsite specialists Sigmat have announced the appointment of two new directors to further strengthen their innovative leadership team.
Internationally renowned offsite innovator and sustainability veteran Nick Milestone joins the team as Engineering Director, whilst structural engineering specialist Tim Doubell will take up the newly created post of R&D Director.
Both Nick and Tim join the team with a wealth of experience across a variety of offsite disciplines and have worked across a multitude of industry sectors, including landmark projects for Blue Chip clients across the globe.
With a strong focus on fast-tracking innovation within the industry, the duo will be heavily focussed on reducing carbon construction techniques as they continue to build on Sigmat’s already impressive green credentials.
Engineering Director Nick Milestone said: ‘I am absolutely thrilled to be joining such a passionate and progressive team. Sigmat has both the resource and expertise to really push the green agenda and I am delighted to be part of this exciting journey.’
With a major project surrounding the launch of a hybrid structural building system using low carbon materials already underway, both Nick and Tim are eager to channel their experience into creating a new wave of sustainable solutions for the industry.
New R&D Director, Tim Doubell, who will be responsible for driving new, industry leading solutions commented: ‘Launching a hybrid structural flooring solution is a really exciting starting point for us as a team. By integrating Cross Laminated Timber in conjunction with an LGSF structure, the concrete usage is eliminated. It’s this type of innovation that will make a real difference as the industry works towards achieving its net zero carbon targets.’
