Fire Engineer

Bing started his career in Christchurch following his graduation from Auckland University in 2013 as a structural engineer.  He is now a Fire Engineer. 

Working with Caliber Consulting on the reconstruction of Christchurch following the 2011 earthquake, Bing gained experience working for the  New Zealand Earthquake Commission on the Canterbury Home Repair Programme (CHRP).  His team provided engineering advice including identifying earthquake damage to properties and writing repair and remediation strategies prior to applying for building consent.

Bing worked on over 25 projects during his three years in Christchurch including schools, shops, commercial buildings and private residences.

In his last year of undergraduate study, he developed an interest in the structural behaviour of steel structures in fires, which led him to pursue further studies in the field of fire engineering. He has a Masters degree in Engineering studies with a major in Fire Engineering from the University of Canterbury when working in Christchurch through part time study.  

Leaving Christchurch in November 2016 Bing joined Crossfire as Fire Engineer.  

In his spare time, Bing enjoys tramping and is also a pool swimmer for fitness.
