Claire Thomas


MA (Oxf) CEng MIStructE

Claire is a director of the practice with responsibilities for our marketing and London projects. She is highly experienced and has contributed with enthusiasm to our new CDM 2015 procedures and the selection of a new project management system.

Joining Integral in 2015, Claire has over 22 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 £100m+ new builds. As well as leading the structural 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.

Since joining Integral, Claire has felt obliged to start running to fit in with the rest of the team but has found it, surprisingly, very enjoyable. And when family life permits, she enjoys painting, Pilates and learning to play the piano.
