I began my career working for a Contractor engaged on a wide variety of major Civil Engineering works before becoming a Consultant Engineer and have since been responsible for the management of design teams and consultants' offices and the design and supervision of a wide variety of Civil and Structural Engineering projects both in the UK and overseas. I have spent the last 3 years in an advisory capacity for Neilcott Construction as Civil and Structural Design Manager.
