Meet The Team

Derek Orr

This is an image of Derek Orr from BMS.

Derek has over 29 years’ experience building controls and working in servicing, commissioning and designing energy systems.

Derek started his career with the Royal Air Force (RAF). While in the RAF he gained the fundamental building blocks in electrical and electronic systems, working primarily on Tornado F3 fighters. The training and experience paved the way for Derek’s successful career!

He was first introduced to BMS controls after leaving the RAF in 1990. The early 90s signalled the start of the growth in building energy management systems, and Derek began working with Satchwell, who were renowned at the time for giving the best training in the industry.

He went on to learn and specialise in a number of building management systems, computers, networking and programming. He believes learning is for life, and this has been fundamental to the knowledge and experience he has gained throughout his career.

In his spare time Derek enjoys running and regularly takes part in ParkRun, a weekly 5km jog held in local parks throughout the UK.
