Every project is different and is an opportunity to learn
“Inevitably all projects have their ups and downs but there is always a massive sense of achievement when a build is complete. You can look back and know you have overcome problems through good engineering to produce the completed building.
“A couple of examples that stand out for me were a bespoke timber frame house in Norway and my first reasonable sized framed structure.
“The timber frame house in Norway was irregular in form, which meant it required bespoke solutions while maintaining the timber framed construction and overall sustainability goals. Developing these unique solutions based on first principles and seeing them come to life was very satisfying.
“The framed structure involved vertically extending an existing steel framed structure. This led to many tricky issues to resolve through trying to limit strengthening to the existing structure, while modernising and vertically extending it. This was a great project to see from concept to completion – managing every aspect of the engineering role, every step of the way."
