As Associate Director of the Buildings Structures team, I assemble and manage the teams that undertake our projects out of the Cardiff office. It can at times be a challenging role but that’s also what makes it enjoyable; finding solutions that will ensure client satisfaction and efficient service delivery.

I’ve been responsible for the delivery of a number of landmark buildings, one of which was shortlisted for a World Architecture Festival award for Structural Engineering, where I presented the project at the ceremony in Barcelona. The opportunities that a career in engineering can bring really are endless.

I originally worked for a small consultancy before it was acquired by Opus. Training opportunities were limited there, however since my beginning with Opus I’ve had the ability to greatly increase my skill set, gaining a Project Management qualification through the Association for Project Management and even travelling to New Zealand for an in-house leadership course.

Because of this I’m able to manage my team with a certain level of autonomy, knowing that Opus encourages and supports me to act on my ideas and initiatives. I see a lot of potential in the building asset management sector in the UK, and am really looking forward to working on tying in Opus’ services to cover the whole life of assets.
