I first met Paul Hinam in a business environment some 25 years ago. At that time we worked together on a range of design and build projects across a number of sectors. Paul always performed his duties with professionalism and even at that stage had a comprehensive understanding of MEP design and installations. Subsequently, during my time at 2 further companies and Paul moving from large consultancies in to established his own business, we worked together on larger, more technically challenging schemes including:
Paul provided design and on site monitoring/audits on the above and worked positively as part of a design and build contractors team, assisting with coordination and management of the mechanical and electrical sub-contractors. His relationships with clients and supply chain were always strong given Paul?s collaborative approach to work.
Paul also took on a commissioning manager role on several projects. Here, from the early stages of the project, Paul took the M & E design and specification, challenged it and developed a comprehensive plan to ensure that the installation was correct in every way, leading to a smooth and efficient testing and commissioning programme and handover. He attended M & E coordination meeting throughout the objets to facilitate this and produced a very effective schedule for all stakeholders, which clearly set out responsibilities and deadlines for action. Projects where Paul undertook this role included:
I would recommend Paul Hinam as an experienced and capable services practitioner who can add value, find solutions and work well with teams in an overtly collaborative manner.

Paul Hinam has worked with Linc on several 'Extra Care' projects over the last 3 years as a Building Services Consultant.
The Care Homes consist of a high proportion of mechanical and electrical work. We required a consultant who would provide this specialist knowledge in both areas of mechanical and electrical works: such expertise is difficult to find.
Paul Hinam has provided a personal approach to this work, always attending meetings himself rather than delegating. His friendly approach makes him easy to work with, and he ensures the client obtains value for money in his areas of exoertise.

Gallese Design / Paul Hinam has supported Norgine's site development over the past 11 years as Building Services Consultant / Specialist both in direct design and indirect subcontractor support.
Our site at Hengoed has tripled over this period and the value of works Paul has supported has varied from the small (circa £10,000) to the large (circa £3,000,000) with all projects having a strong bias on accurate and innovative building services due to the nature of our site Paul has always supported the client needs and always goes "the extra yard" to ensure that we get what we need. Paul's personal interest in energy reduction means he is always very particular in value engineering projects to avoid "over specifications" and managing costs.
Paul has built strong relationships with both our own staff and with suppliers, contractors and specialists and forms a very importunate bridge in understanding what the client actually needs and transforming that into practical cost effective solutions. I do not hesitate in recommending Gallese Design to other businesses and would be happy to take personal calls to support this.
