Scott McMurray – General Manager, S1E Ltd
Q: What is your background and what brought you into the trenchless industry?
Having studied at Manchester Building College, I followed my father into civil engineering supply working for a business called J F Donelon in Bolton within their merchant division. With various roles under my belt within the distribution side of the construction industry, I took a role within Flexseal Couplings, the sister company of S1E Ltd where I now look forward to many years yet to come.
Q: How/why did you get involved in UKSTT?
With my inexperience and unfamiliarity of the CIPP Industry and having only joined S1E Ltd some 8 months ago, getting involved with the UKSTT will help to bring much-needed understanding of this specialist Market. This, I hope, will assist me to promote, advertise and bring value within the water industry.
Q: What goals do you want to achieve as a UKSTT Council Member?
I want to help with awareness and promotion of the learnings of the UKSTT to the market. I’d like to fully understand what the water authorities priorities are regarding compliance and how the UKSTT can be of help in promoting trenchless to them as a solution.
Q: What do you see as being your own greatest personal achievement in the trenchless industry?
Having only recently joined the industry, it is very difficult to quote any personal achievement as yet, however from the warm reception given by other members and the sheer engagement at such an early stage…. who knows what is around the corner.
Q: What do you currently see as the industry’s most urgent challenges?
With many challenges for everyone around the world today due to the pandemic, what is important now is to ensure we look after our environment for our children to enjoy tomorrow.
Q: Where would you like to see UKSTT in 5 years?
Bringing together focus on better practice with the involvement of all the various bodies within the industry.
