Jane is Technical Director for Thomasons in Manchester, where she has worked since 2003. As a Conservation Accredited Engineer Jane particularly specialises, and enjoys, working on historic structures. She has over 30 years’ experience of working with old and existing buildings and has been convinced for many years that buildings should be repaired and reused rather than replaced.
Jane has worked for SMEs for the majority of her career. With this type of work she has also become proficient with controlling a multiplicity of relatively small projects concurrently. Over the years she has become familiar with many building types and details and still finds the discovery of details exciting.
Jane has been actively involved with the Institution since 2000, serving as Regional Group Chair for Lancashire and Cheshire in 2006/7 and on numerous committees and panels since then.
