As Director, what is your vision for TTW?
We want to provide an outstanding service and creative solutions. As we are employing some really clever people, we want to see them develop their design and communication skills to become leading engineerings.
What words of wisdom can you pass on to young engineers starting their career?
You need to do the hard yards as we all have done. Understand the basics and where possible think about what the answer should be before getting into detailed analysis.
In your perspective, how is the construction landscape changing?
Increase in prefabrication and off site construction, associated with a continuing development of BIM – providing a full package that integrates engineering design up front and facilitates management at the end of the project.
