Currently the sole employee and Director of J C-B Engineering Consultants Limited.

A brief statement and introduction:

“Having graduated Sussex University in July 2013 I obtained a 1st class with honours as a Master of Engineering (MEng) on an Automotive Engineering degree program.

Shortly after graduating I established my company J C-B Engineering Consultants Limited. with the aim of furthering my own passion in Automotive Engineering, whilst developing a reputation and respect for my name primarily but not exclusively in Vehicle/Aero Dynamics and Powertrain Systems; achieving excellence in high performance road and Motorsport applications - in doing so, contributing to the development of the Automotive Engineering industry to the benefit of OEM, supplier and consumer alike.

Shortly after registering the company I obtained an ongoing contract to supply Product Development expertise to Ford Motor Company where i consulted in various areas for 4+ years. During this time i also had opportunity to further my experience in race engineering in the Britcar Endurance Series.

Following a recent contract working in mechanical design on an exciting project for Dearman Engine Company i am continuing to research, expand and develop in different disciplines to improve my companies depth of knowledge, whilst pushing various product concepts through into production.

Remaining true to my passion and drive. I am very much looking forward to the journey ahead of me.”

    Mechanical Design

    Design of Liquid Nitrogen (LiN) distribution systems ranging from LiN storage tank to intake system of the Dearman Engine.

    Using SolidWorks CAD suite & PDM, this involved the realisation, packaging and routing of pipework and thermal management systems, including the creation and release of 3D assemblies and 2D drawings with GD&T.

  • Britcar Endurance Series:
  • An endurance motor racing championship in the UK featuring sports and touring cars.

    Race Engineer; 2016 Season

    Assisting the chief race engineer at Hofmann's Motorsport with data logging and analysis, vehicle dynamic and aerodynamic parameter management and general issue solution on their Lotus Europa GT - Racing at various circuits around the UK this was a great opportunity to revisit motorsport and a valuable learning experience at a highly professional team.

  • Ford Motor Company:
  • The first contract obtained by J C-B Engineering Consultants was with Ford Motor Company. A second contract was immediately awarded and sustained a positive and productive relationship until its end.

    Powertrain Design & Release

    Working directly with international Tier 1 suppliers to deliver powertrain components for application in small, high power density turbocharged engines meeting cost, quality, weight and timing targets set by Program Office.

    A broad understanding of materials and manufacturing processes was required across the techniques of casting and machining Aluminium and Steel components, to injection moulding and additive manufactured polymers.

    Tools and software packages such as MS Project, WERS, AVBOM, TeamCenter, CATIA V5, Matlab/Simulink and the development of quality tools such as FMEA, eFeas aided in achieving robust component sign-off.
