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.
Forward to now, i am enjoying an opportunity to offer my product development expertise to an exciting project for Dearman Engine Company.
I continue to research, expand and develop in different disciplines to improve my companies depth of knowledge, while remaining true to my passion and drive. I am very much looking forward to the journey ahead of me.”

A list of our previous and current consulting contracts.
A small yet growing company with an innovative new technology in using the expansion of Liquid Nitrogen to generate power in a tradition IC Engine architectureMechanical Design Engineer; April 2018 - Present
Primarily working to digitise design concepts for application of the “Dearman Engine” for refrigerated transport application: Designing Liquid Nitrogen (LiN) distribution systems within articulated trailer bodies from LiN storage tank up to intake system of the Dearman Engine.
This involves realisation, packaging and routing of pipework and thermal management systems, including the creation and release of 3D assemblies and 2D drawings.
Using SolidWorks CAD suite, this has been a great opportunity to further skills, exercise some creative thinking within an unusual application and has been a valued experience thus far.
The first contract obtained by J C-B Engineering Consultants was with Ford Motor Company. Beginning in July 2013 and ending February 2015. A second contract was immediately awarded and sustained a positive and productive relationship until its end date of December 2017.Powertrain Design & Release; February 2015 – December 2017
Responsible for design and release of Engine Lubrication System components such as oil control solenoids, oil sump baffles, aeration covers and oil pump inlet tubes for application in Ford engines worldwide.
Utilising the Ford GPDS structure, this involves working directly with several international Tier 1 suppliers with emphasis in this role to deliver components meeting cost, quality, weight and timing targets set by Program Office. A broad understanding of materials and manufacturing processes is required considering the wide variety and function of components we are delivering.
The D&R process necessitates a proactive approach and requires efficient management of multiple work streams with conflicting priorities and requests. Tools and software packages such as MS Project, WERS, AVBOM, Teamcenter, CATIA and quality tools such as FMEA, eFeas aid in achieving these goals.
A strong and communicative relationship is maintained with Tier 1 suppliers via regular face to face meetings at supplier sites. Alignment with interfacing PD teams is essential to maintain, as is working with cross functional departments i.e. Finance, Cost Estimating, Manufacturing Engineering, Vehicle Integration (Package) and so on to ensure an efficient and robust component release.Vehicle Design Verification; July 2013 – February 2015
This contract was to supply project management expertise to support robust vehicle sign-off according to the Ford utilised GPDS structure. Working with all functional engineering teams (Powertrain, Chassis etc) to drive and facilitate the efficient sign-off of GPDS gateways from UNVx & UPVx through FDJ to PEC & FEC; Supporting the development and maintenance of both analytical and physical design verification plans tracked in eFDVS, overseeing progress in engineering and testing vs GPDS deliverables and preparing engineering gateway sign-off papers and status reports to support reviews by engineering functional managers and chiefs.
This required co-operation cross functionally with both Product Development and Program Management disciplines to verify that Models, Prototypes and Facilities are able to support the DV plans of functional teams, analysing sign-off data through metrics from DPA, eFDVS, Integrator and attribute status reports.
Also required supporting of D&R and Verification Engineering teams with issue management and process leadership.
An endurance motor racing championship in the UK featuring sports and touring cars.Race Engineer; March 2016 – November 2016
Assisting the chief race engineer at Hofmann's Motorsport with on-track duties such as data logging, analysis of ECU monitored parameters, car setup and general issue diagnosis and solution on their Lotus Europa. Racing at various circuits around the UK this was a great opportunity to revisit to the world of motorsport and a valuable learning experience at a highly professional team.
J C-B Engineering Consultants kicked off a community outreach program with an exhibition at Brighton & Hove’s first annual Motor Show in June 2017.
3 educational games were developed in-house in order to teach young children some basic engineering fundamentals. The principles covered were:
- 1. Newtons 3rd Law of Motion, aerodynamics and gravity:
- Demonstrated using air powered rockets. 2. Kinetic Energy, Renewable sources of energy (wind power), aerodynamics:
- Demonstrated using miniature wind powered cars. 3. Structural Mechanics:
- Demonstrated using a selection of load bearing shapes.
Children were invited to participate in the games and certificates of participation were handed out as a form of recognition and encouragement.
The event was very well received and much positive feedback was given to the organisers. We are invited back in 2018.
