BEng, MSc, PhD, MICE, CEng
A highly experienced Structural Engineer. For many years, a specialist in steel design, first at Mouchel and then at the SCI, where I also managed the Software Engineering department.
Further design office experience at Rowecord Engineering Ltd (Newport, S. Wales).
When Rowecord seized trading, I worked for a number of years as DES Ltd and carried out several interesting assignments with the London offices of Buro Happold, Waterman Structures and Aspire Defence.
Expertise is in structural steel, composite construction, advanced engineering analysis, product development and project management. I can also add expertise in reinforced concrete, having completed a 9-month contract on an RC development composed of 6Nos. 6-10 storey RC buildings for Fairhurst.
Experience now covers all common structural materials – steel, concrete, masonry.
