For six years she worked for Ramboll, first in the UK and in then Norway, where she embraced the challenges of engineering in a different language and context. Her university training combined engineering and architecture, leading to her interest in both the process of achieving efficient engineering solutions and the aesthetics of structures, especially exposed structures.
In London, she worked on the Tate Modern extension (Herzog & de Meuron), as package manager for its concrete superstructure, and led the engineering design of its complex curving main staircase. In Norway, she worked closely with architect Kleihues + Schuwerk on the new Oslo National Museum to deliver the facades and fitout.
An excellent public speaker, she is passionate about championing women in engineering and was junior chair of the networking group Women in Sustainable Construction and Property. Martha already spoke three languages, including Ancient Greek, before teaching herself Norwegian in Oslo. She enjoys sketching and year-round cold water swimming.
