Clare works within the education and laboratory sectors, leading environmental engineering teams with a portfolio of projects across London.
She is currently leading the engineering team on AstraZeneca’s new global R&D centre and corporate headquarters, a major project involving the relocation of the research centre from its former site at Alderley Park to the new Cambridge bio-medical campus site. Aiming for BREEAM Excellent, the research building will be supported by an energy centre incorporating a number of low energy solutions including an extensive ground source heat pump system.
Clare’s strong integrated approach to design and the use of innovative and passive engineering solutions is combined with a thorough understanding of the complex design interfaces required to achieve successful integrated engineering solutions in the many specialist areas within buildings. She has extensive experience in projects combining new build and retained/refurbishment elements, generally on constrained inner city sites with listed buildings including National Army Museum, UCL Terrace and Refectory and University of Cambridge North Range.
Digital engineers - we are leading the field in the adoption of BIM and this powerful tool is already revolutionising the way designers interact, analyse and communicate design principles to enable new ideas and innovation to be analysed/proven in a common environment.
BDP will again be exhibiting at the AUDE (Association of University Directors of Estates) annual conference, taking place this year at University of Exeter.
BDP has two of its employees shortlisted in this year’s Women in Construction Awards. The awards, now in their ninth year, provide a showcase for the brightest and the best female achievers in the construction industries.
BDP’s London studio is pleased to be hosting a breakfast event for Greeate Careers, an opportunity for young women professionals to hear presentations and join in discussion groups to share ideas and challenges faced in becoming a leader in their chosen field.
