Peter has been involved in many high profile major bridge projects including the award winning: Gateshead Millennium Bridge; MediaCityUK Footbridge across the Manchester Ship Canal; the landmark Twin Sails Bridge, Poole, and the iconic Queensferry Crossing on the Forth estuary.
Peter was overall Design Joint Venture Project Director of the £1.35b Queensferry Crossing project in Scotland, one of the world’s largest cable-stayed bridges. He was responsible for leading the design and supervision of the works, reporting directly to the Joint Venture Board. With around 150 people working on the design at its peak, in four different design centres, in four different countries, establishing clear communication is vital. Peter takes an open, collaborative approach to ensure all the teams within the design joint venture work together effectively.
After almost 30 years working on high-profile bridge projects, Peter has a deep understanding of technical issues, materials and structural forms. He has built cable-stayed, arched, beam, and tension bridges, and worked in concrete, steel and timber. Peter’s portfolio of projects includes highway bridges, rail bridges, footbridges, opening bridges and major bridge crossings. While many of his projects have been new builds, he has also delivered bridge strengthenings and refurbishments.

Recommendations for refurbishment to achieve code F compliance.
Due to aging infrastructure and projected traffic growth, Brunei International Airport requires substantial refurbishment and upgrade of airside infrastructure.
Ramboll, in cooperation with Arcadis and Jurutera Tempatan, prepared an assessment of airside geometric requirements and review of available information on pavement and AGL infrastructure. The purpose was to provide recommendations for the scope of works necessary to most efficiently meet the future operational needs of the airport.
Ramboll produced an outline strategic brief to improve access between the city centre and airport, adjacent to the frontier with Spain. The objective, to provide for a free flow of traffic; currently interrupted by airfield operations where 600m of existing road crosses the runway.
