Meet Gary Sneddon
Much of Gary Sneddon‘s early electrical engineering career was spent working for blue chip clients in Edinburgh, a low rise city where the tallest building is five stories. A move to London exposed him to larger projects. He also started to specialise in ELV systems — extra low voltage systems, used for data networks and for audio-visual and security engineering.
