Katie Clemence-Jackson from Max Fordham

todayJune 14, 2022


Peter Finn talks to Katie Clemence-Jackson, senior project engineer and sustainability consultant at Max Fordham.

Katie is a senior project engineer and sustainability consultant, experienced in delivering varied and unique projects at all construction stages. She is chartered with CIBSE and actively involved in the Institution, including chairing the CIBSE Technology Committee.

Katie Clemence_External Headshot-smKatie coordinates the activities of Max Fordham’s Net Zero Carbon (NZC) working group, and was key to establishing the Practice’s NZC design service. She is also co-chair of the Practice’s Equality, Diversity and Inclusion group. Plus she was an NLA Expert Panellist for Net Zero Alumni 2021.

In her day to day work, Katie likes to think of services engineering as bringing a building to life. She starts with an empty shell and turns it into a living, breathing place where people feel comfortable.

Katie create designs that go beyond their intrinsic functions, considering how each system will be installed, maintained, tested and understood by the end users.

One of the most rewarding aspects of her job is building relationships with the design team and clients so that she can help turn their abstract ideas into an elegant design. Once she has understood their vision, motivation and goals, Katie can design the engineering services to support and enhance this vision in a way that is implicitly understood by the end users.

And I think what we’ve learned from a lot of the talks happening today and happening yesterday and untold conferences, the the value of collaboration and communication.
