The Human Face of FMG
FMG Engineering | Leigh Burns Interests

Leigh Burns | Grandfather

I enjoy boogie boarding in summer, following the mighty Cats in winter with my kids and grandchildren, and I try to get in a game of golf every week! Work is an important part of my life; meeting those challenges involved in structural engineering design. This makes planning holidays with Di that much more meaningful.
