Martin Rogers has three decades practical engineering experience, working across the UK before relocating to Australia and joining TTW in 2003 as Associate Director. Martin is highly skilled in management and complex structural engineering design having worked on many renowned and diverse projects around the world.
Martin takes a unique approach to every project, often putting himself in the shoes of the architect, builder and client to ensure he meets their different expectations from design integrity to cost and sustainability. His experience lends itself to a spectrum of project sectors from multi-storey residential and commercial, aged care facilities, food production facilities and a specialisation in large industrial projects.
How do you maintain strong relationships with the design team?
Firstly – I acknowledge and respect that different clients have different expectations. I put myself in the client’s shoes and visualise the requirements from their perspective, that way I ensure it’s cost effective, sustainable and it’s driven by passion.
As a leader at TTW, what advice do you give your staff?
I’m in my fourth generation of mentorship, which is an element of my job I really love. It’s a privilege to pass on knowledge and experience, guiding young engineers and draftsmen to excel. One big piece of advice is: don’t innovate for the sake of being different, explore new materials and methodologies because it is beneficial to the project at hand.
