“"We work hard at our relationships with contractors — high quality projects depend on them."”

Curriculum vitae

Simon Groves joined the practice in 1988, becoming an Associate in 1992 and a Director in 2000.

Simon is responsible for overseeing the work of Ramboll UK in the London region. His focus is on commercial, residential and arts projects, and airport buildings. He led our successful bid for a BAA 2nd Generation framework agreement for structural engineering and now heads the dedicated design team.

His design successes integrate technical innovation and a clear understanding of the financial implications of alternative solutions.

Through design reviews and the development of project-specific client and contractor feedback processes,
he ensures that buildability issues are addressed both at the strategic level of foundation and frame design and in relation to details. This generates added value on projects where successive buildings are developed.

Simon contributes to the continued development of Group Quality Management systems.

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.
