Police investigating the murder of Joanna Yeates today erected scaffolding around Flat 2 at 44 Canynge Road – where architectural engineer Vincent Tabak, 32, lives.
Workmen from D.R.A Maintenance Ltd put poles and green tarpaulin around Jo’s basement flat and Flat 2, which also overlooks the garden.
Mr Tabak is an office workspace expert and is currently employed as a ‘people flow analyst’ at Buro Happold in Bath, Somerset.
The Dutch national was born in the village of Veghel near Eindhoven, the Netherlands, in February 1978.
He started studying for his six-year long master of science degree in Architecture, Building and Planning at Einhoven University in 1996, and graduated in 2003.
His PhD project ”User Simulation of Space Utilisation” looked at developing spaces within offices to aid movement and make the most of a building’s capacity.
Mr Tabak moved to Britain in 2007 to work at engineering firm Buro Happold in Bath, Somerset.
Since 2007, he has been working in SMART, the advanced analysis and simulation team, developing people flow projects, including schools and airports.
He moved into Flat 2 at 44 Canynge Road in 2009 and previously lived in Walcot Parade, Bath, the year before.
Mr Tabak is believed to have shared the Canynge Road flat with his girlfriend Tanja Morson, a treasury analyst at Dyson in Malmesbury, Wilts.
