I am a structural engineer with over 20 years’ experience and currently leading the Industrial Projects Division for Arup in South Africa. I am a Director, office leader for the Johannesburg office and Southern Africa, as well as Science and Industry Business leader.

I have a wide range of experience in the development, management, estimating, conceptual and detailed design, and construction of civil and structural works for industrial projects. This experience is across various sectors including mining, oil, gas and petrochemical, energy, pulp and paper, food and beverages, manufacturing, warehousing and healthcare.  

My technical expertise includes design of specialist structures such as dynamic structures supporting vibrating equipment, bulk materials handling and storage structures (conveyors, silos and bunkers), and heavy civil structures. 

My key skills include extensive management in industrial and EPCM environments, and leading multidisciplinary engineering teams of various sizes to deliver quality projects on time and on budget.
