Our Team

Our Team

Though Compass Fire is newly formed, we are a group who have been working as a team for up to the past 9 years. We are known within the sprinkler industry and all staff have experience in their roles. Combined, we have 60+ years experience in fire protection, and as a team, have handled some large building projects in the Western Cape.

 

Gary has 15 years experience in the sprinkler industry. He began his career performing the duties of a sprinkler draftsman, site supervisor as well as the listing and purchasing clerk. The focus moved to sprinkler drafting for a number of years until costing was added to his duties. In the last few years his main duties have been around the cost control of projects. He has achieved a ND: Mechanical Engineering and is a current student member of the institute of fire protection engineers. He is responsible for the design and costing aspect of the project, and ensures compliance with ASIB requirements.

 

Chris has 40+ years experience in the sprinkler industry and as a result has vast knowledge of all aspects of the sprinkler system. Chris’s skills lie on the practical side and he has great problem solving abilities. This is due mainly to the fact that he has solved just about all problems that could occur on a sprinkler system in his lifetime. .

 

Leon has 15 years experience in the construction industry, 8 years in sprinkler systems, with a background in electronics. He has achieved certification up to NTC 4. He spends his time on site, ensuring that the systems are installed as per the design intent, to the correct quality standards and within the time limits required by the client. His greatest advantage to the team is his ability to keep cool within the pressure cooker environment of a construction site. Added to this is his can-do attitude to difficult projects and his hands-on approach to site supervision. This has resulted in Leon successfully supervising major construction projects. .
