With projects including The London 2012 Olympic Stadium and its Legacy Transformation, The Emirates Airline and the prestigious Emirates Stadium for Arsenal Football Club, Michael Keverne has proven himself a leading Engineer in the design and construction of high profile, award winning projects.
Michael started working in Buro Happold’s Special Structures group in 1999, having been selected by the company’s partners for his dissertation work on long span and lightweight structures at Bath University.
