Yorkshireman (not stereotypical I hope). Enjoy a pint of ale or two now and again, maybe I am stereotypical!
I’ve always enjoyed problem solving and understanding how things work. When I was younger and visited the Nou Camp I thought “I’d like to design that”. Maybe one day.
Bradford lad, finished school and went to University in Manchester to study Civil & Structural Engineering. Enjoyed 4 years studying and partying and somehow managed to get a Masters degree at the end of it all. Joined White Young Green as a graduate engineer for a couple of years before moving to a small practice called KMN Group in Leeds. I’ve been with BWB 10 years now and never looked back.
The most challenging projects are usually the best. The landmark in Bexhill was a challenging site..8 Storey concrete frame with 2 storey basement on a busy roundabout next to the sea. The site visits were fun too.
All in all it’s working with likeminded great people that make the job enjoyable.
Enjoy playing and watching sport. Mostly football, golf (badly) and skiing (even worse). I love to travel and experience new places. Most of all enjoying the company of family and friends.
Hopefully celebrating 15 years at BWB, watching Bradford City in the Premier League and still slicing golf balls.
