Chartered Structural Engineer at AECOM

Summary

I have little career experience with regard to climate change but I am interested, and wish to engage further in the subject.

Peter is currently undertaking a MSt in Construction Engineering at the University of Cambridge. Resilience of infrastructure to climate change is a key topic of the course. With this in mind I focussed a research assignment on the needs of existing building structures to become more resilient to climate change – with particular emphasis on extreme wind events. My thesis will be focusing on material efficiencies of building structures. It aims to research the potential to increase utilisation of structural elements and therefore reduce the volume of material required and the energy (and associated carbon output) to produce them.
