Work Status: Currently Employed
My name is Bryan Laidlaw. I am a time served Heating Engineer (Pipe Fitter and former Pipe Welder) who works in and around Edinburgh. I have over 40 years pipefitting experience in building services and construction. I am punctual, hard working and I consistently produce work of a high standard. I am well organized, efficient at what I do and have a very methodical way of working. With a good eye for detail, I'm the type of person who likes to get the job done. I like to see progress at the end of the day and I always try to leave a job that nobody has to go back too.
I fit pipework for all types of heating and chilled water installations on large to medium sized contracts. I work with screwed steel, welded steel, copper, stainless and plastic pipe.
Throughout my years in the trade, I've worked all over the UK. I've worked on many multi million pound projects and many smaller scale projects worth a couple of hundred thousand pounds. I've worked in a variety of situations in buildings such as schools, hospitals, hotels, office blocks, factories, banks and data centres to name a few.
I've worked with many different piping systems and materials in my time as a heating engineer. Manufacturers are always coming up with new systems and fittings which can often be beneficial for the job I'm doing. It pays to keep up to date with the latest fitting systems. Below are some of the things I've fitted.
Back At The Yard
Block E1 Complete
Semple Street wasn't for me so I handed in my notice and I'm now back at the Engine Yard. I'm currently fitting around 60 heat interface units (HIU's).
Block E2 Complete
Typical HIU Pipework
The above image shows one of the units I've fitted. The plumbers fit the primary pipework. I've got 17 fitted so far, only another 43 to go! After that it's on to the final block. The full project is scheduled for completion next year.
