Senior Architectural Technician
& Project Lead

Sean Wilson

I started my career at 16, joining the RAF in 1979 as an Explosive & Weapons Engineer and served for 14.5 years. That took me worldwide with various Tornado Squadrons and seeing front line action during the Gulf war in 1991. I left service in 1994 with a Degree in Mechanical Engineering, but my love for architecture and design took me in a new direction, and I have now been in the technical and management side of the construction industry for over 25 years. Within that period, I have gained a wealth of experience in both domestic and commercial projects working for Architects and Developers alike in both Norfolk and London.
