Summary of experience

Here is a list of the projects that form Will’s experience prior to starting Thorne Wyness with Jenny. Click the links to view more about these projects:

The Leadenhall Building

An innovative Skyscraper in the City of London. I worked on this project from the end of the outline design phase through until the job was on site. I was responsible for the fire escape strategy, building services, coordinating the landscape design and detailed design of various parts of the galleria area. My colleague Dirk and I were instrumental in introducing the use of BIM modelling to RSHP on this project which we used to generate working drawings and coordinate with consultants using 3D data. I was the primary representative for RSHP on site dealing with contractors, specialist engineers and the clients project managers until the project was put on hold by the financial crisis.

Heathrow Terminal 5 - Central Terminal Building

A major new terminal building for Heathrow Airport. I was responsible for coordinating the engineering design of the complicated network of below ground tunnels and pipes that serve an airport terminal. By collaborating with the large and diverse specialist engineering team and developing an understanding of the constraints affecting structures as large as railway tunnels down to a vacuum tube aircraft part delivery systems, I was able to reorganise the network of tunnels such that we saved the client £40,000,000 in excavation costs. I learnt a huge amount working on this project it gave me an amazing insight into every aspect of construction. I am very grateful to my colleagues at RSH-P for the way they gave me ownership of an important part of this job and allowed me to develop an understanding of the problems and solve them on my own terms.
