Commercial Heating Engineer
Hi there. My name is Bryan Laidlaw. I am a time served Heating Engineer (Pipe Fitter and Pipe Welder) who works in and around Edinburgh. I have 39 years pipe fitting and welding experience gained from working in construction
and building services. I fit and weld all types of heating and chilled water installations and works on mainly large to medium sized contracts. In my time I've fitted all pipe sizes using steel pipe up to 12 inch and copper pipe
up to 4 inch. I have extensive experience working with the following:
As a heating pipe fitter, a large part of my trade involves the fitting of screwed steel pipe. The things I would typically pipe are boilers, chillers, air handling units, pumps, 3 way valve sets, cold feeds, vents, gas lines,
radiators and fan coil units. These are just a few of the things I fit. If it needs piped I pipe it.
I fit pipes in a wide variety of environments, mostly on large to medium scale construction projects and occasionally on smaller projects. I've worked in schools, office blocks, hospitals, data centers, hotels, factories and much more.
I generally work in central Scotland but have worked all over the UK, even as far afield, as the island of Unst in Shetland.
When it comes to copper pipework I've fitted more than my fair share. I fit copper mains up to 4", hot water cylinders, booster sets and water storage tanks. I'm more than comfortable using pressfit, soldered or compression fittings
and I know how to use a bending machine. I don't do much domestic plumbing unless it's a homer, generally sticking to commercial scale pipework in larger premises.
As a heating engineer I've fitted a variety of piping materials. I've used ABS glued plastic up to 8 Inch, fused plastics up to 6 Inch, Uponor up to 4 Inch, Meplar up to 2 Inch, Victaulic grooved to 8 Inch and galvanised screwed up to

These are the 3 most recent projects I've worked on prior to the Engine Yard development. The clients are always more than happy with my work and I'm usually on each job until completion.
