Over his 23 years with Ramboll, Ben has delivered on some of the UK’s most iconic buildings, including the National Graphene Institute and Mary Rose Museum and internationally he’s worked in sensitive and harsh climates, including the Falklands and the Antarctic.
Ben brings both clarity and momentum to projects through his involvement. He uses excellent communication skills to ensure that broad strategic thinking sets a platform and route through the design process to meet the client’s needs.
His most recent project involved the Halley VI Research Station relocation. Monitoring by British Antarctic Survey revealed that Halley VI, located on the Brunt Ice Shelf was sitting downstream of a crack that could have eventually cut the station off from the rest of the ice shelf. The relocation of the station further upstream moved it away from the crack to help ensure Halley’s continued safe operation into the future. As the structural advisor, Ben assessed the structural elements of the research station prior, during and post relocation. While Ben’s primary role was structural advisor, he also contributed to the project's overall management, supporting the Station Leader and the project team on other work required during the project. This pooling of resources is critical to maximising efficiencies during Antarctic operations, where working in extreme conditions requires great teamwork and collaboration.

As a great collaborator and skilled in the design and coordination of solutions for complex projects, he is one of Ramboll’s highly experienced team leaders. His portfolio of work spans a broad range of sectors, including public and historic buildings, science and research laboratories, residential and commercial premises. His experience and practical common sense approach to solving problems enables him to make a valuable contribution to projects in which he is involved.
