Career Details

Jon obtained an Honours Degree in Aerospace Systems Engineering from Coventry University in 2000, and following this took a year out to travel the world. Due to unforeseen circumstances in the aerospace industry, Jon pursued a career in alternative engineering fields. He accepted a position at Archibald Shaw, and undertook further education at the University of Portsmouth to gain knowledge in civil and structural engineering.

Whilst at Archibald Shaw Jon has been responsible for a variety of projects on both commercial and residential schemes including housing developments, steel framed buildings, barn conversions, historic building refurbishments and highway bridge works. He has significant experience in the design and repair of reinforced concrete structures including foundations, complex slabs and retaining walls. Jon was Assistant to the Engineer on a bridge strengthening and refurbishment, and open cut tunnel project in Aberthaw, Wales, and was Principal Structural Engineer for a £4M SEN (special educational needs) school near Bristol. Recently, Jon has overseen the engineering design for many high end residential schemes along the south coast.

Since becoming Partner in the Chichester office, Jon has developed his managerial skills and broadened his engineering knowledge and expertise.
