Harrogate engineering and management consultancy Tate Consulting has appointed a former Delap and Waller board member as a partner to help shape its strategic direction.
Experienced chartered engineer Jim Lee joins Tate from the consulting engineering firm and has more than thirty years’ experience in planning, designing and managing building services projects. Previous clients include Adobe, New York Stock Exchange, Apple, CITI, Marks & Spencer and Westfield
Recent projects for which he has been responsible include the £200 million Titanic Quarter development, the 28 storey Obel Tower; the tallest building in Ireland, the Liberty Shopping Mall in Bucharest and a new EMEA HQ office for Adobe. Award winning projects include a new Public Records Office building in Titanic Quarter, winner of RIBA ACE & SIB Sustainability Awards
Jim’s commitment to sustainable design corresponds with Tate Consulting’s mission to make new and existing buildings as simple and as energy efficient as possible. He has delivered BREEAM Excellent and LEED Platinum assessed offices including a Commercial Interiors v2009 LEED Platinum rating for Adobe, the first for Adobe outside the US. He is a licensed BREEAM (BRE Environmental Assessment Method) assessor
He arrives at a time when Tate Consulting is working with Asda to develop a five year strategy for reducing energy consumption and carbon emissions across their distribution network within the UK.

Jim joins us at a time of expansion. He brings a wealth of knowledge of working with blue chip names on public and private sector buildings throughout the world and will help shape our business development and future strategic direction.
