United Kingdom / Highways / Landscape architect

Oliver May

Oliver was in training for riding for Great Ormond Street Hospital children's charity . He raised over £750 for the charity by taking part in the Prudential Ride London 100 bike ride in 2014.

At a graduate networking event I made contact with a fund raiser for Rose Road. I later contacted the charity with an idea to help them design a sensory garden for the Rose Road disabled childrens respite centre. Mott MacDonald CSR team and I have made Rose Road the flagship scheme for our office and have donated £10,000 and over 100 hours in employee time. "Mott MacDonald has a culture of constantly striving to be on the crest of the wave of innovation and creativity."

Why did you decide to join Mott MacDonald?

I chose to work for Mott MacDonald as it gave me an opportunity to work on a wide range of engineering infrastructure projects as a landscape architect.

What is the best thing about your role?

The best part of my role for Mott MacDonald is that I get to work face to face with a range of professionals at the top forefront of their disciplines to design, innovate and creative design solutions.

How would you describe the culture of Mott MacDonald?

Mott MacDonald has a culture of constantly striving to be on the crest of the wave of innovation and creativity.

How many years have you worked for Mott MacDonald, and what has been your proudest achievement to date?

In the two and a half years that I have worked for Mott MacDonald I have had the great privilege of working on a wide range of projects including a stadium, tramway, science and innovation park and smart motorway scheme. My greatest achievement, which I am extremely proud of, was leading a Corporate Social Responsibility flagship scheme to design and build a sensory landscape garden for the Rose Road Association, a disabled children’s respite centre.

When you’re not in the office where can you be found?

When not in the office I will most likely be found riding the country lanes of the New Forest or in the stands supporting Southampton FC.

If you were to live anywhere, where would it be?

If I could live anywhere I would live in New Zealand, preferably the North Island. In my year in practice between my Bachelors and Masters degrees I worked as a landscape architect in a small landscape practice. I completely fell in love with the country and the vast array of beautiful plants and trees which grow there in abundance.
