Adam describes the thinking behind developing alternative engineering proposals on this challenging building for the University of Sheffield in an article recently published in the Structural Engineer.

Adam has recently joined our growing Exeter office and is working on City and Dockland’s re-development of Portal West Business Centre in London with CJ O’Shea.
