Paul Marsden, Technical Specification Manager at Baxi, has been appointed as the new chair of the Society of Public Health Engineers’ Industry Working Group (SoPHE IWG). The group aims to provide a higher profile and focus for public health engineers within the Chartered Institute of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE) as well as within the building services industry.
An affiliate member of CIBSE and SoPHE and a member of the Chartered Institute of Plumbing and Heating Engineering (CIPHE), Paul’s whole career has been centred around commercial hot water generation and public health engineering. He uses his wealth of experience and expertise of hot water systems and renewable / LZC technologies to help public health and mechanical engineers understand the relationship between the products, the applications and the systems they are designing.
Paul has an ONC in gas utilisation and City & Guilds in gas services. He also regularly represents both Baxi and the wider industry, delivering a variety of training, CPD presentations and seminars. More recently, he has developed training events and courses targeted at young and graduate engineers.
As Chair of the Industry Working Group, he will work with SoPHE members to offer the support and assistance required to help further the profile of this important building services sector.
Paul says, “I am delighted to be appointed as the SoPHE IWG Chair and look forward to building upon the work of my predecessors. The increasing focus upon decarbonisation will not only impact upon how buildings are designed, but also how products are designed and manufactured. This represents both challenges and opportunities, and makes for an exciting time in which to be involved as we transition to a low/zero carbon future.”
