Brian Brett

Regional Director

Brian began his career in South Africa in 1994 where he worked for his family electrical contracting firm, Port Shepstone Electrical prior to moving into consulting engineering with a multi-disciplined company by the name of EG Africa. A lot of Brian’s early experience was related to HV reticulation both in design and installation and gained valuable experience in process / industrial engineering sectors.

In 2000 Brian immigrated to the UK and joined a Canadian company HH Angus working on various projects at Canary Wharf. During his time at HH Angus Brian helped deliver over 3 million sq. / ft. of shell and core / CAT A and CAT B commercial office facilities.

In 2004 Brian joined Hurley Palmer Flatt where he was recruited into the mission critical group and has gained extensive experience in critical engineering. He always has a key focus on project client requirements and the delivery of these, often with very challenging time constraints where he has been selected as the lead consultant gaining a vast experience with financial services clients.

In his time at Hurley Palmer Flatt, Brian has been involved in the successful design and delivery of over $1billion worth of data centres with many varying levels of load density and resilience. His client list is varied from various technology companies and many corporate clients including the likes of Bank of America Merrill Lynch, Equinix, Santander, Lloyds Banking Group, Nationwide, Interxion, Microsoft, Lloyds of London, JP Morgan and K2 to name but a few.

Although Brian has focused on mission critical projects for many global clients, he also has experience in the commercial office, hotels & leisure and process engineering sectors of the industry.

Brian is currently the Regional Director of the Croydon office which has a number of engineering teams delivering a wide range of projects in various sectors ranging from £0.5m to £150m.
