Peter has over 35 years experience in geotechnical and civil engineering and has been directly responsible for the geotechnical design of many major building, infrastructure, highway and rail projects.
The range of projects he has undertaken has enabled him to gain extensive knowledge of ground conditions in many areas of the world. His skills include: scoping and evaluating extensive and complex ground investigations; slope assessment, design and remediation; modifying construction methods through field observations; investigation of geotechnical failures; identifying and rectifying project problems during design and construction and, numerical analysis of cut and cover tunnels, deep basements and complex structures.
Peter promotes a holistic approach to engineering, integrating economic and effective design with ease of construction. He has co-authored standard industry texts on European standards, as well as writing a number of papers related to geotechnical case studies. Peter also undertakes external and internal training in a diverse range of geotechnical topics including the implementation of standards, soil-structure interaction analysis and general design methodologies. He is currently Chairman of the NAFEMS geotechnical committee and lectures on Plaxis numerical modelling courses.
