JPP Management Team

Working with you

JPP Consulting

Group Directors

I joined JPP in 1997 as a Graduate Engineer and was invited to join the Board of Directors in 2011. I became Group Director in 2018 and now oversee all of our teams. I specialise in highway and drainage designs with a particular interest in the continued development and improvement of our BIM capabilities. I manage our ICE Approved training schemes for staff progressing to membership.

CV and Projects

I joined JPP Consulting in 1999 as a Trainee Technician, but with the ongoing support of my peers I continued through university obtaining a first-class degree in Civil and Structural Engineering, before becoming a Chartered Member of the Institution of Civil Engineers and the Institution of Structural Engineers. My expertise in Structural Engineering has enabled me to develop a varied client base, contributing to the growth of the company, which has allowed me to progress through the ranks to position of Group Director.

CV and Projects


In my current role as Director within JPP Geotechnical and Environmental Ltd, I help to deliver and oversee a wide range of geotechnical and geoenvironmental site investigations across the UK to assess feasibility of sites for a wide range of developments from residential to commercial and sports.

My role includes the production and review of detailed Phase I and Phase II Interpretative reports as well as a range of detailed groundwater risk assessment reports (T1, T2 and T3 reports) to support future developments.

I have been at JPP since the conception of the Geotechnical and Environmental department at the start of 2018.

I graduated from the University of Leeds studying Geography and Geology 2012 and then completed the Engineering Geology MSc at Leeds which finished in September 2013.

From my sporting background I have gained valuable knowledge in the areas of teamwork, intra-personal skills and leadership. All of which I believe are essential to business.

CV and Projects

I am a keen and practical engineer, who prides himself on being able to balance the sometimes very scientific side of my profession with other very important factors such as buildability, and not least economy. A strong background in different disciplines gained over my time in the industry means I am able to confidently deal with various aspects of a single scheme, and provide clients with the single point of contact which JPP as a company always aim for.

I am a motivated team leader, passionate about getting others involved in all aspects of engineering.  I have the ability to converse with the general public, contractors, clients and other professionals, and clearly explain what issues are being faced and how to resolve them, allowing all parties to draw together to achieve the common goal.

CV and Projects

Starting out in Structural Engineering, my career was founded on engineering design, detailing and investigation of buildings and infrastructure. This growing over time to encompass multi-discipline public and private sector consultancy across a range of property and infrastructure asset management and design services. This led to nine years as a Director leading property teams within a multinational property consultant.

In the three years prior to joining JPP, I took a break from consultancy to experience contracting, joining a regional civil engineering and building contractor as Pre-construction Manager. Valuable experience gained from the other side of the fence.

Early in my career I obtained Incorporated Engineer status with the Institution of Structural Engineers followed later by Chartership with the Institution of Civil Engineers, also gaining a NEBOSH Certificate in Occupational Health and Safety (with Distinction) along the way.

CV and Projects

I lead our Development Planning division and over the past 20 years I have been extensively involved in developing integrated land-use and transport planning strategies at numerous developments throughout the UK.  My client portfolio is diverse, and I have successfully guided a range of private sector clients, including commercial interests within the residential, retail and business sector through the planning system.

CV and Projects

I started my career with JPP as a Junior Technician in 2007.  After completing my HNC in Civil Engineering I went on to become a Technician Member of the Institution of Civil Engineers and a Member of The Chartered Institution of Highways & Transportation.

Now a Director,  I am now responsible for leading all of JPP’s infrastructure teams; specialising in the design of large residential schemes, affordable housing, industrial projects and commercial developments.

“Relationships control the flow of money more than core competencies or deliverables” – Dan Kennedy

With over 30 years of surveying experience I think that the personal touch is as important to client relationships as the final deliverable. The majority of our work is commissioned on a repeat basis from satisfied customers who recognise our professionalism; accuracy and commitment. We work with our clients to provide what they want, but also to seek out that little extra that may provide that small commercial advantage over their competitors.

CV and Projects

I am a highly motivated leader, experienced and conscientious engineer and appointed Director of JPP Geotechnical and Environmental at its inception in January 2018.  I bring a wealth of experience from various sectors including a wide range of project types from housing to schools, industrial and commercial redevelopments to multi-storey construction within central London and nationwide.

I consider it is key to liaise with clients, contractors and regulators at early stages and even at concept stage to review ground related potential abnormalities that could arise and determine the most cost effective and appropriate investigation strategy. I always like a challenge which the ground can often provide!

With the technical knowledge and experience of the geo team alongside the other JPP disciplines, we strive to provide a comprehensive consultancy service to attain cost effective and sustainable civil engineering solutions.

Outside of work, I have two young children who keep me busy. I enjoy hiking and skiing.

JPP Consulting’s involvement was to provide structural engineering design and detailing to facilitate the inclusion of a double storey height glass box extension to the rear of the adjacent museum. The glass box has structural glass fins both providing lateral support to the elevations and vertical support to the glass roof panels. The glass extension sits on a new basement structure with the glazed box tying back to a discrete three storey steel frame structure constructed up through the basement and around the perimeter of the previous double storey height glazing adorned the existing rear elevation of the museum.78 Derngate, set in the centre of Northampton, is the only house in England designed by Scottish architect Charles Rennie Mackintosh. #structuralengineering #designanddetailing #glassextension #CharlesRennieMackintosh #museum #NorthamptonImage credit – Richard Ellis ...
