“I have always been interested in the wider project drivers and seek to explore ways engineers can add value to a project outside their own discipline. I like to create an environment where project teams work closely together to achieve a successful and enjoyable project.”

Alex joined Ramboll in 1997 as a graduate and is now a Divisional Director leading the Buildings team within the London office.

Alex has 20 years’ experience in the structural design and management of building structures. She has experience in all structural materials through involvement in diverse market sectors, from commercial and residential through to health and education, with a number of award winning projects to her name.  She counts both contractors and developers as key clients and her input on projects helps bridge the gap between design and construction.

She has developed and broadened her technical skills through post graduate study with an MBA. As a structural engineer, she is interested in a holistic approach to building design and likes to engage with the wider aspects of a project and design team.

Alex is great collaborator and uses her enthusiasm for the industry to engage and encourage the next generation of engineers to reach their full potential. She participates in external mentoring, panel events and leads the Gender diversity initiative within Ramboll.

Recent projects

Goldsmiths, Department of Media & Communications

The new Media & Communications building at Goldsmiths, which is part of the University of London, is a purpose-built facility on a prominent location overlooking the campus Green. The building unites two previously separate departments. Our structural, building services civil and geotechnical engineers all contributed to the project, designed by architect Stride Treglown.

The five-level steel frame structure includes a full-footprint basement. Its design had to meet a number of structural challenges, including the accommodation of a couble height theatre, TV studio and lecture spaces in the basement. Our solution for these is several transfer structures, which not only provide the open floor areas needed but also allow for full utilisation of the floor plates above.
