Adrian

Senior Design Engineer

I have worked within the design engineering discipline for many years and have experience in most working environments from heavy steel manufacture to the food industry.

My journey began with a 4-year apprenticeship Boilermaker at BSC LLanwern South Wales and I simultaneously studied for a HND course in Fabrication Welding and Material Science. This gave me enormous scope and enabled me to overcome many challenging design tasks.  My time at British Steel and willingness of my mentors to teach me additional skills, such as; hot riveting, black smithery, manual turning, milling and sheet metal, has meant I have become skilled in many other different disciplines.

After leaving the steel industry, I worked as an independent contractor throughout the UK for the petrol, chemical, food and mechanical industries principally as a fabricator welder and here I gained AMIE 9 6G Coding in MIG, TIG & MMA welding and AutoCAD City & Guilds 2D & 3D.

I started as a Design Engineer within the architectural and construction industries, working in glass, aluminium & Stainless-Steel. Working as part of a team, we designed many conceptual structures such as elegant glass staircases and innovative glass walkways. I always endeavoured to bring something new to each design in either appearance or technology and working as part of a think tank, we pioneered new ideas for connecting buildings and linking spaces.  I worked designing conventional curtain walls and bolted systems but also, I helped to develop unconventional solutions to overcome a client’s preferences on various contracts such as moving solar shading, sun tracking Brise Soleil, ventilation louvres, balcony & canopies which utilised hydraulics, pneumatics and electrical systems. During this time, I added structural, mechanical engineering software including Autodesk Inventor, Finite Element analysis, Revit Tekla Structures to my skills.

I am delighted to be joining the Twinscape team and believe I will play a valuable role in achieving their vision and ambitions in the future.   I believe in the integrity and the ethos of the company and think that my accumulated skills & enthusiasm will enhance the projects.

Case Studies

Beachfront Home Sets Trend

Private Home | Kiawah Island, Usa

Located on the magical Kiawah Island in South Carolina, this stunning outdoor swimming pool was the ‘brainchild’ of several minds – the family who owns the pool, the architects, contractor, pool designer, interior designer and Twinscape.

From Shimmering Pool to Cool Party Space

Private Home | London UK

Behind the design and build of every private pool featuring a Twinscape movable floor, there is the client’s desire to make the best and most creative use of the space in their home.

Ahead of the trend for a multifunctional basement

Private Home | London UK

Twinscape’s latest project was recently completed in London. The client had a young family who enjoyed swimming, but they also wanted a play area that was secure, safe & dry.

Creating a Flexible Entertainment Space

Private Home | Suffolk, UK

A client in Suffolk chose a movable floor for his swimming pool on the suggestion of the architect. This was not the first swimming pool the client had having previously installed one at another of his homes and this house did already have a pool but it needed renovating. The architect suggested they rebuild the whole pool to incorporate a movable floor and make the area into a flexible entertainment space.

Portfolio

"The space is flexible and we love using it for either a patio or pool. The major benefits are its outstanding safety, the ability to set the pool to any height, and how inexpensive it is to heat. The team is professional and great to work with and I would very highly recommend them."

Steve Lawrence

Palo Alto, California

"The level of aftersales support offered is paramount, the technical support team is the best we have ever dealt with, and the staff are knowledgeable and professional. In short, the service offer is second to none and we thoroughly recommend to anyone."

David Bland

Portrait Pools UK

"The whole experience was fantastic. A really nice team of people that we frequently met and who always had time to answer our questions - whether from me or one of my children. We love our Hydrofloors movable floor. It has outperformed our highest expectations!"

Pilar Seagrove

Switzerland

"I love it. Guests used to marvel at our views but now the pool really is the most admired thing in the house!"

G E Bloch

Switzerland

"We use the room for parties as well as swimming and recently we even had a small orchestra on it for a recital. Hydofloors is an amazing concept that has given us much needed extra space without having to move."

Adrian Spreadborough

London

"We have been working successfully together for some years. From the first enquiry, through to producing design drawings and then handling the installation, nothing is ever too much and they make the whole process incredibly simple."

Jamie Smith

Managing Director, London Swimming Pool Company

"Before we began working with Hydrofloors, I peppered the team with questions about feasibility and capability. I was reassured by their expertise, confidence and enthusiasm. The team delivered on all their promises and we were delighted to be the first to install a Hydrofloors system in the Western Hemisphere. Most importantly, we’ve heard only good things about the function of the movable floor since it was installed in 2012."

Tyler Smith

Architect, USA

"It’s truly the best build decision we’ve made – if someone were to ask our advice on installing a Hydrofloors movable floor, I’d tell them to go for it!"
