Curriculum vitae

Martin Duke joined Ramboll in 2007 as an Associate, becoming an Associate Director in 2010.

Martin specialises in infrastructure engineering, supporting site development works by designing highways, drainage and flood management systems, across the UK. Also experienced in geotechnical and offshore, Martin leads the civil engineering team, setting the strategy and steering the team to the most appropriate technical solutions. Martin has worked on a wide range of projects, including academy schools and university buildings, waste to energy plants and healthcare centres.

In addition, Martin has led the recent development of Ramboll UK's ports capability, which for the most part focuses on renovating and updating ports so they can service offshore wind developments. Martin contributes his expertise to these projects, as well as liaising with colleagues from the wider Ramboll Group on international ports projects.

As well as his engineering qualifications, Martin has a post-graduate diploma in contract law, which has given him a strong understanding of liability issues. Combined with the breadth of his experience across the civil engineering sector, Martin is able to identify and manage risk well and to bring a considered approach to infrastructure projects.

Martin is currently working across many sectors including education, healthcare and waste as well as residential and commercial.
