Kevin Gee


Kevin commenced his career in construction in 1983 as an apprentice carpenter for Coombs Construction in Canterbury. After several years, and having gained much experience, Kevin set up his own sole trader company, dealing with mostly small works and managing a group of sub-contractors with a focus on quality construction.

Having enjoyed 12 years in the profession, Kevin chose a new challenge and retrained as a Physiotherapist at Brunel University. He went on to have active senior roles within the NHS and his own practice.

Kevin then returned to the construction industry, and is now a co-director of S.E.A. His main roles are leading the post construction services of air and sound testing, quality assurance and client liaison. He is a fully qualified air tester through his ATTMA membership, and registered with the Institute of Acoustics as a qualified sound measurement tester.
