What is the best thing about being an engineer?
The evolution of a project from the brief, through to the constructed product that will outlast you on earth, is an experience unique to the construction industry.
In your perspective, how do you think the industry is changing?
The industry is becoming commoditised with a growing divide between large multi-nationals and boutique consultancies. Thankfully the site-specific nature of Civil Engineering ensures there is always value to add through exceptional design.
What three projects have shaped your career and why?
Tottenham Hotspur Stadium
As an avid soccer fan to be involved in the design of a Premier League stadium was a memorable experience. To see it open and be described as the ‘best stadium in the world’ recognised the exceptional work of the design team, which isn’t always evident on less prestigious projects.
International Quarter London
A new $4 billion commercial district to rival Canary Wharf, located on the site of the 2012 Olympic Games. Project Leader for site-wide external works overseeing commercial and technical delivery of 14 disciplines, from master plan through to construction.
White Bay Cruise Passenger Terminal
This multi-award winning project was one of my first in Australia. There were extensive external works to transform the existing container terminal and deliver a passenger-centric experience.
