What will you bring to a project

I pride myself on being able to work with our clients to provide efficient structural solutions that consider not only cost, but also speed of construction and constructability. I am a positive and proactive person and this flows through into my approach to projects. I adopt a solutions based ‘can do’ attitude from concept stage through to construction.

Client testimonials

We have been extremely satisfied with the level of service provided by both structural team members, Eric Le Meur and Michael Ruescher, both of whom have consistently demonstrated their ability and willingness to resolve site issues quickly and efficiently.

We have always found structural documentation to be clear, accurate and easy to follow. The level of detailing is thorough and accounts for construction practicalities and site constraints.

Their pro-activeness in investigating alternative solutions when needed and their innovative approach to resolving design challenges has brought significant value to our projects from a cost and programme viewpoint. We also thoroughly enjoy the friendly and cooperative manner in which Eric and Michael conduct themselves and look forward to working together on many more projects to come.
