Meet Jonathan, Stancold’s CAD Technician

In 2022 we’ve put a lot of effort into rearranging our internal structures. There are new faces across all the departments, with more joining us soon. Today we’re introducing our CAD Technician, who joined Stancold in July.


Jonathan has been busy absorbing all the intricacies of composite panel-based construction and learning details about his new role, which includes producing the drawings and assisting the project team in preparing “shopping lists” for the jobs.

“I’ve used technical drawings for a few years. For the first time in construction, though, and the first time I can confidently say that I own my projects,” he says. His professional background was in CNC machining, where he worked on small metal components that formed hinges and latches for various industrial applications.

“It is an entirely different case scenario compared to my previous roles, but the principles are similar – and most importantly, you need the same extreme attention to detail. I’m still figuring out my workflow, so I tend to overproduce designs and strip them back to the essentials. It keeps it easy to digest on the client side and internally. So far, so good!”

Outside of work, he spends his time travelling around the UK. He’s on a quest to visit all the railway stations around the country and enjoys trekking. “I’ve done The Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge in under 10 hours and climbed The National Three Peaks within three days. Not quite the 24 hours to meet the official challenge requirements, but at least I’ve got something to work towards,” he says humbly.

Jonathan’s first fully-owned project was the contract we started for Albion Fine Foods in November. “I recently went to Kent with Sam Glover to visit our installation team and talk them through some details. It was fantastic to see my designs come to life!”

We are proud of Jonathan’s development in his role, and his swift integration into the Stancold family has been key to our plans for 2023. Stay tuned for more updates, and email info@stancold.co.uk to see how our team can help you and your projects.
