Hi, I'm Nathan Coleman. I'm a senior field technician for Coleman Consulting Ltd.I've been in the industry for approximately five years. I share my father's passion towards the industry, the balance in service between clients and contractors, and a mind for practicality, environmental and health and safety. I've obtained an IP404 qualification and have my Asbestos assessors license as well as the other training qualifications needed as a field technician (Mewp, confined space, and heights).
