David Barratt


I joined the University of Edinburgh in 1999 and my role a Engineering Operation Manager provides for an interesting and varied workload across an extensive estate of over 200 buildings built from the 1850's to the current day. I am responsible for all mechanical and electrical engineering and manage a team of technical and trades staff. This team provides for the ongoing maintenance of the building services as well as guiding the designs of all new building projects.

I am married with two sons and enjoy getting outdoors and gardening. Current project is building a mini raced by my elder son.
