MA (Oxf) CEng MIStructE

Claire is a director of the practice with responsibilities for our marketing, health and safety, and London projects.

Joining Integral in 2015, Claire has over 23 years’ experience as a structural engineer in Southampton, London, Bath and Bristol working on a wide range of building projects from small refurbishments up to large £80m+ new builds over a range of sectors. As well as leading the structural and civil design, Claire is also a very capable project manager due to her understanding of other building disciplines. Her paper on sustainable design was published in the Structural Engineer and she has served as a member of the judging panel on the Institution of Structural Engineers’ annual awards. She helps to lead Integral in tackling current issues facing the industry such as CDM and environmentally responsible design with surface water drainage and building reuse.

Since joining Integral, Claire has rediscovered her enthusiasm for running and after many in-house lunchtime yoga sessions can finally do a chaturanga.
