About

GlencoIS was founded by Ian Glendinning in 2010 as Glenco Information Services Ltd. [A member of the Travivas consulting network. See latest news here.]

Ian is a professionally qualified engineer and manager, with over 40 years systems engineering experience in plant facilities.

This covers the full life-cycle from functional schematic development through design, materials, welded fabrication, construction, testing & handover to operators & authorities. This includes containment system integrity, trouble-shooting, revamp & turnaround experience on operating facilities in oil & gas, LNG, refining, energy, chemical & pharma assets.

With that first-hand perspective of the real engineering life-cycle, Ian has been active in recent decades in leading the implementation of information-standards-based interoperability and handovers, for EPC & O&M customers and software solution providers, extending to an even wider range of industries and collaboration projects in infrastructure, nuclear, transport, aerospace, health and education.

In that period Ian has been instrumental in the evolution of reference data architectures with industrial information ontologies such as ISO15926 Templates, the adoption of W3C/RDF/OWL semantic-web representations and more recently with CFIHOS and BIM. Ian continues to conduct a personal research project in knowledge management generally and in developing applications connecting the most sophisticated business lifecycle integrations with ever changing social-media apps and technologies.

However, Ian remains first and foremost an engineer specialising in information management at plant facilities business interfaces that maintain system & information integrity across the full life-cycle, and is flexible about contract and/or employment terms that enable client engagement towards useful solutions.
