Phil Simpson
Technical Author at NBS

I'm part of the Architectural Interiors team at NBS, responsible for sections including doors, stairs, sanitary, paint and fire protection. These are, in my opinion, some of the most interesting parts of a building.

I love researching new technologies and developments in construction industry products and practices. I have an inquisitive nature and like to investigate and question everything. I like order, systems and procedures and improving the way we work, making me ideally suited for my role at NBS.

I came to NBS with a background in healthcare and education projects. I spent the past 15 years working on a number of projects from small ward refurbishments to new school buildings. I've also been involved with designing, technical detailing and project management and in the day-to-day life of an architectural practice - focussing on marketing and public relations, expansion, practice policies and procedures.

I am particularly proud of building my own home, defect free, and project managing the build and also of helping to roll out ISO 9001 within an architectural practice.

Working on health care schemes has provided me first-hand experience with interiors and how the specification can be the most powerful tool in a job - especially when there are problems. Doors and sanitary have been my life - at least, that’s what it feels like - as they are some of the most important elements in health care. Fire safety also plays a big part in health care buildings. I have been involved in many different aspects looking at improving details, surveying entire hospitals looking at the fire protection or lack of it and have even been stuck up in a few roofs in my time.
