I am an Associate Director and lead the Building Engineering group in Arup's office in Newcastle.

My career has spanned for more than 40 years where I have combined my technical expertise with a drive to deliver holistic solutions for all types of buildings. In the early stages of my career, I was working on developments in London Docklands and have since taken a leading role on a range of projects worldwide. I have directed a number of local civil and structural projects, including the ground-breaking design of the National Renewable Energy Centre’s wind testing facility in Blyth and the recent striking addition to the Durham University campus, the Centre for Physics Research.
