Mat joined Ramboll in 2014 to lead the Building Structures team.
Mat has worked in both contracting and consulting for over 25 years in the construction industry. He has extensive experience of structural design, but also has a good understanding of civil, geotechnical and geo-environmental issues. Mat’s contracting experience has given him a wider understanding of the complete process of construction and development.
Most of his work has been in the Property Sector, including Commercial, Education, Public Buildings, Sport and Leisure, Residential, Industrial, Health Care, and Retail property schemes. Projects have varied in size from £1m to £500m, in PFI, Design and Build, and conventional procurement environments. Mat’s project related expertise is directing the delivery of quality multidisciplinary designs for complex property schemes.
Mat has led several award winning national teams. His good communication and interpersonal skills, sound commercial management and knowledge of risk have been invaluable in this regard. He has a keen interest and significant experience in knowledge management, and has used this to good effect in creating a coherent and efficient national building structures team, with a focus on knowledge sharing, technical excellence and innovation.
Mat is also an enthusiastic proponent of Design Management and has coached staff and run courses to promote these skills.
