Chris has nearly 30 years’ experience as a civil engineer and has worked on major infrastructure projects around the world. He joins Mott MacDonald from HS2, where he was engineering director for Phase 1. Prior to this he spent seven years as chief engineer on the Crossrail project. During this time he was the single point of engineering technical authority for the programme, providing technical leadership to deliver a world-class level of performance.
Mott MacDonald is involved in some of the world’s most recognised major infrastructure projects, such as Crossrail, HS2, London Power Tunnels and Thames Tideway in the United Kingdom, San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge, Alaskan Way Viaduct and East Side Access in the United States, Hong Kong International Airport third runway, Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau link and Singapore’s Jewel Changi Airport (Jewel) in Asia-Pacific, Africa’s giant 7000km Mwambani Rail Corridor and the Tarbela Dam hydropower expansion in Pakistan. The consultancy offers engineering services at every stage of a project including feasibility, technical advisory, detailed engineering design and construction monitoring. Chris will be engaged across all of the sectors and regions Mott MacDonald operates and will significantly strengthen the company’s service offering on major projects.
Mike Haigh, Mott MacDonald Group board director, said: “Chris is a fantastic appointment for us as he has great insight into the priorities for clients undertaking major infrastructure projects. He will be a hugely valuable resource for our staff due to his vast experience and our clients can only benefit from his knowledge to help realise their project ambitions.”
