Michael Stockdale

Head of Design

Having worked for a leading distribution network operator (DNO) for over 23 years , I took the opportunity to join Source Design Services (SDS) at the beginning of 2016 to create a design team to deliver electrical schemes for the newly formed UKPN alliance framework. My design team has successfully managed to deliver multiple schemes which involved complex trenchless installation techniques including horizontal directional drilling and micro-tunnelling. I have also successfully led the design team for a major infrastructure project for RAF from 2019 to 2022. I was promoted to Head of Design in early 2022 and have successfully managed our utility design teams including obtaining and retaining our NERS, WIRS and GIRS accreditations. I really enjoy working with our team here at SDS who are energetic and constantly finding innovative ways of finding design solutions to the challenges we face. Our leadership team are proactive and always support each other to reach our goals.
