Curriculum vitae

Paul Steen joined the practice as an engineer in 2000. He became an Associate in 2007.

Paul is highly experienced in the planning, design and supervision of a diverse range of construction project types in the energy, marine, infrastructure and built environment sectors. He is a geotechnical engineer and project manager, based in our Edinburgh office.

A natural leader and problem solver, Paul brings a sound understanding of the needs and requirements of a project's owners and stakeholders to working effectively in multi-discipline teams. Among his key strengths is the ability to identify technical and commercial risks, and he uses his problem-solving capabilities to derive appropriate solutions.

He also brings a strategic appreciation to engineering project management, whatever the scale of project — from feasibility studies to large projects on difficult sites with complex ground conditions. He works to continuously develop his technical understanding of issues affecting engineering design.

Paul often works in the energy sector, project managing renewable energy production and distribution projects, including biomass and biogas facilities. He has a deep understanding of how such projects are put together and that a successful energy production facility is the product of the combined effects of a number of inputs, processes and controls. He is well-versed in the regulation of waste, energy production and environmental impacts in the UK.

Recent projects

The Mersey Gateway - six lane toll bridge

Ramboll has played a significant role in the Mersey Gateway project, the central feature of the significant highway improvements between the M56 and Speke Road. It is a new six-lane cable-stayed tolled bridge across the Mersey Estuary between Runcorn and Widnes.

European Extremely Large Telescope

Located on top of Cerro Armazones in Chile, the Extremely Large Telescope (ELT) will be the largest optical/infrared telescope in the world and will take telescope engineering into new territory. With a main mirror 39m in diameter, this ultra-advanced telescope will be housed in an enormous rotating dome 85m in diameter. When complete it will be be used to search for life on planets around other stars in the Milky Way.
