As part of our What Makes KaydeeSayfa series we have been speaking to some of our team to give you an insight in to the people behind KaydeeSayfa.
Sean McConnell - Pre-Construction Manager
Sean has been with KaydeeSayfa (previously with Kaydee) for over 20 years. He started out in 2002 travelling to various project sites across the country to identify the project's needs and identify any potential problems that may arise in the future. Fast forward to 2023, Sean is now (usually) office based coordinating with our suppliers, site teams, and clients; to ensure the project runs as smoothly as possible.
The introduction of KaydeeSayfa gives space for Sean to really focus on streamlining and supporting the supply chain. The operations team now have a clearer view of projects in the pipeline across all packages. This allows the team to pre-empt any possible problems, and ensure the supply chain is capable of providing a solution, before it can effect the delivery of the project.
Adrian Stutterheim - Testing and Training Manager
Adrian has been with KaydeeSayfa (previously Sayfa Systems) for 16 years. For the majority of this time Adrian has been involved in the installation team and now manages the Training and Testing within the Retest Department. Adrian's role sees him regularly out on site performing system retests. When Adrian isn't on a roof testing, he can be found in the classroom providing training to those who will be using the installed systems.
Adrian sees the creation of KaydeeSayfa as a big plus for the client. During his time with Sayfa Systems and now KaydeeSayfa, Adrian has been involved in almost every aspect of the project process. A key component of Adrian's roles have been interacting with the client for installation and then testing and training. This puts Adrian's focus largely on the client. He believes that KaydeeSayfa improves the way the packages can be secured by the decision makers, without the need to shop around and place their trust in a number of sub-contractors. Now they are able to put their confidence in a trustworthy and experienced provider, with decades of experience, to deliver their package solution.
