Ian Williamson

CAD Technician

Ian began his venture in the engineering world by studying structural drafting at the Professional Drafting Services College in South Africa, which afforded him the opportunity to work for several manufacturing firms, one that specialises in stainless-steel gas fireplaces and barbecues – whilst there, he designed a fireplace that emitted the lowest emission fumes across their entire range – and another which provided bespoke stainless-steel kitchens to a variety of catering businesses.

Currently at 3D Technical Design, Ian creates both 2D drawings and 3D models to support the design of district heat network installations around the country.

Ian is also responsible for developing the company’s microlearning system that creates a standardised and consistent education platform to streamline the training of the next generation of district heating designers.
