Mark is a Chartered Structural Engineer with almost 10 years' experience in the construction industry. He graduated from Edinburgh Napier University with a First Class MEng degree in Civil Engineering. During his studies, he began working for the Institute of Sustainable Construction as a research consultant, a role which he took on full time upon graduation. During his time at Edinburgh Napier, Mark specialised in the development of timber as a construction material and worked on a variety of projects to assist in the categorisation of the UK timber such as the design of bespoke timber structures, production of automated calculations and data tables for timber products, as well as the dissemination of technical information through presentations and structured learning. A further part of his role was to deliver lectures on the use of timber in construction, the use of design and analysis software and timber engineering in accordance with Eurocode 5.

Mark left his role at the university in 2014 to work in private consultancy. Since then he has worked on a variety of projects in residential, retail, healthcare, commercial and hospitality fields as well as earthworks and bespoke structures. These projects have included new build structures as well as listed historical structures. Through this experience, he has designed structures using all of the primary structural materials, including aluminium and glass. In 2018 Mark passed the IStructE Chartership exam to become a Chartered Member of the institution. He joined Christie Gillespie in April 2019 and is looking forward to the continued development of his knowledge and skills with the company.
