As a Director, what is your vision for the company?
The success we see at TTW comes from a desire to deliver industry-leading service and smart solutions. I see the company building on these values by inspiring the next generation of engineers to be project focused. We have forged strong relationships across the construction industry, but the world is evolving, so my vision is to listen to our client’s needs, adapt, and innovate. We can do this by both challenging and nurturing the best minds we have into leading engineers, to encourage them to keep an open mind, and embrace change.
What has been your career highlight and why?
Delivering Wynyard Walk, a project that challenged and rewarded in equal quantities. The site was a highly constrained environment that demanded innovative heavy engineering solutions and an understanding of the speciality construction techniques employed to excavate under existing buildings. My role in leading the structural design required continuous navigation through the project complexities and guiding the team from the seemingly impossible to a successful outcome.
