Gio prefers tackling intricate, multifaceted or challenging assignments, and creating unique bespoke solutions tailored to the client’s brief. He transforms concept designs into practical proposals, optimising structural performance to inform the architectural character of each project within scheme and cost constraints.
His strong grounding in technically complex projects includes concrete, steel and composite large-scale structures in the commercial, residential, mixed-use and heritage sectors. He has extensive experience in analysing building dynamics, vibrations, tuned mass dampers, time-dependent effects on buildings and the overall construction process. Added to which is a thorough knowledge of Eurocodes, UK and US codes, as well as US work experience.
A great communicator, Gio is always ready to share knowledge, explain technical matters or undertake in-depth design reviews. He enjoys liaising with clients and stakeholders, and co-ordinating teamwork across different disciplines. He particularly values his role mentoring less experienced team members and is enthusiastic about shaping their progress. In April 2023, he became a chartered member of the Institution of Structural Engineers.
His notable projects include Canada Water Dock boardwalk — a 160m long steel bridge structure designed to accommodate difficult ground conditions and limit vibrations, while mitigating dynamic and thermal loading behaviour. Plus listed building refurbishment of Mountbatten House (originally designed by Arup), multi-use developments in Greenwich Design District and build-to-let units at The Wiltern.
Away from work, Gio loves quality time with his family. He is also a keen cyclist and takes to his bike at every opportunity.
