I believe that successful projects can only come from an integrated approach, with true collaboration between the built environment professions. This enables all relevant design decisions to be considered together and combined into a whole by a well-organised team.
Outside Arup I have taken an active role in developing the profession of landscape architecture. I’m currently a regional representative on the Landscape Institute's Advisory Council and a member of the Building Information Modelling Working Group.
