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 Director.

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.
Prior to joining JPP’s Geotechnical and Environmental department I have worked in the engineering/environmental consultancy industry for 17 years in a variety of roles.
My areas of expertise are fee proposals, ground investigation management and reporting, coal mining risk assessment, geotechnical assessments for slope stability, bearing capacity, settlement and retaining walls with subsequent design reports, geotechnical site assessments, earthworks specification, supervision and validation and general project management.
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.Download Mark Turbutt's CV
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 Smith Foster, 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.Download Clive Evans's CV

“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.
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.Download Lydia Crawford's CV
