Speaking about his appointment, Rizwan commented: “Since joining the team, I’ve already started to work on numerous projects over a variety of sectors throughout the region, engaging with key stakeholders over the new sections of the Building Safety Act, which came into force on October 1st. The need for high-risk buildings to be registered with the regulator, combined with the new gateway regime and dutyholder responsibilities, all pose a series of challenges for the industry.”

“With these changes, it is vital to ensure competent expert advice in order to ensure alignment with the new requirements. Wintech are already working with several clients nationally to meet the obligations of the BSA. Wintech’s dual expertise in fire and façade engineering provides excellent value to clients, compliance with regulations, and a positive impact on the built environment.”

Lijesh further commemted: “The opportunity to work with such a talented team and to grow both personally and professionally is a dream come true. I’m eager to embrace new challenges, learn from my colleagues, and make a positive impact on the company’s mission.­”
