Super Structure AssociatesRenowned for his energy and pro-activeness, Derek’s experience in structural engineering spans over 25 years. He has accumulated a portfolio of £multi-million projects across a range of sectors that include sports and leisure, hotels and residential.

Being a keen sportsman and regular marathon runner, a special highlight for Derek’s career was to undertake an engineering and technical review of the 2012 Olympic Stadium and specific aspects of the 2012 Olympic Aquatic Centre.

His innate inquisitiveness combined with his technical ability and financial awareness means that he is a natural problem solver. He is inspired by design. When a typical approach won’t deliver the desired result – or cost – he will look beyond the obvious and innovate.

You can find out more about his creative approach by viewing case studies.  Whilst a large scale construction project is a normal assignment, Derek also likes to work with niche architects on bespoke projects, renowned for their particular style of clean, minimalist creativity.

He will also lend his expertise to offer an independent opinion to property owners when it is required for a project. Derek is a Registered Professional Engineer in South Africa and is a Chartered Engineer with the Institute of Civil Engineers in London (ICE), and the Institution of Structural Engineers (IStructE). He is also an Affiliate Member of RIBA.
