Trained in Cardiff, where he combined a love for maths, physics and art in an engineering course that included architecture, he joined Ramboll UK as a graduate in 2011. His passion for sustainable built environment solutions was deepened by his work helping deliver a sustainable flood relief development project in Bangladesh. While in India on a seven month secondment, he worked on the Al Rayyan Stadium project which will feature in the FIFA 2022 World Cup in Qatar — designing long span steel trusses for the main stadium and enclosed training pitches.
For Whitby Wood, projects include two residential buildings: the six-storey cross-laminated timber Boiler House, and Chesterfield House, which links three concrete frame structures of 26, 21 and 8 levels.
It’s the combination of organisation, creative problem solving and collaborative interaction that glues him to structural engineering as a profession. And all of these will play no small part in his next challenge — taking a leading role in the delivery of the engineering for London’s Greenwich Peninsula Design District, with its 16 buildings by eight different architects.
