Philip co-manages our civil and structural engineering team in Manchester.
He has worked across many sectors, undertaking a wide range of projects that were successfully delivered with a collaborative approach at their core. Philip is a great advocate of teamwork and collaboration across design teams, as these building blocks allow us to capitalise on the talents within the team and create truly inspirational buildings that exceed client expectations. This is demonstrated through his involvement in numerous award winning projects, including the redevelopment of Aintree Racecourse, Enterprise South Liverpool Academy and the refurbishment and redevelopment of Merrion House in Leeds. He is currently leading our engineering disciplines to deliver a number of key schemes that are part of the University of Central Lancashire’s £200m masterplan.
Philip ensures his team is challenged to deliver cost effective engineering solutions that drive added value, innovation and sustainable solutions into projects. His aim is to limit the cost of the engineering solutions to allow a greater portion of project budgets to be allocated to finishes, and result in a greater and more tangible benefit to the client and user.
He is passionate about the nurturing and development of young people in his team to help them realise their potential and contribute to the profession. He was responsible for introducing our civil and structural engineering apprentice scheme, which is now successfully used across all engineering teams. He is also proud to have mentored and developed many graduate engineers through the professional review process with a 100% record of success.
“My peers. It is very important to work closely with more senior team members and absorb as much advice and experience as possible. I have been very lucky in that I have always worked with excellent engineers.”
