As such, he spent much of his time engaged with the issues surrounding the UK government’s 2016 zero-carbon housing agenda. Neil played a pivotal part in growing Inbuilt from a standing start to a substantial six-figure turnover organisation employing 35 people within a year, then doubling turnover during 2009 despite the company’s key markets being in the grip of worldwide recession.

Prior to that, Neil was UK Business Development Manager of the M&T company TEAM Energy, and a Director of National Energy Services where he had technical and financial responsibility for the company's software (NHER) and consultancy offerings.
Neil’s first job in energy efficiency was with Milton Keynes Development Corporation. He was responsible for the technical objectives and performance monitoring of the Milton Keynes Energy Park, a pioneering large-scale low-energy housing/commercial development. The role included extensive liaison with developers to help them implement the demanding energy standards.
