Introducing a series of masterclasses delivered by some of the world’s leading facade, acoustic and structural designers and engineers.
As leaders in engineering design, we are sought to advise on the world’s most challenging projects in the built environment. Our engineers are trusted advisors to clients, architects, contractors and developers, as well as technical experts. Masterclasses’ are highly focused deep dives that detail aspects of engineering design. A Q&A follows each Masterclass allowing for detailed discussion and surety of understanding.
