I am Arup's building engineering leader for the North West and Yorkshire region, managing multi-disciplinary teams based in Leeds, Liverpool, Manchester and Sheffield.

With more than 30 years' experience, I focus on delivering large scale development projects and work in collaboration with our clients to provide advice on statutory approval, design, procurement, commercial and delivery aspects. Having worked within a wide range of sectors including commercial, higher education, arts and entertainment, I have delivered some of the largest higher education campus developments in the UK – including the University of Manchester Engineering Campus Development and Heslington East Campus for York University.

Throughout my career, I have helped integrate core building engineering disciplines with infrastructure. This has included ground engineering, utilities and drainage in both highways and rail projects, as well as additional specialist services such as acoustics, fire, vibration, venues, security and sustainability.
