After graduating from the University of Queensland in 1993 with honors in Civil Engineering, Greg took a job with Aurecon (then Connell Wagner) as a consulting structural engineer. During this time he undertook a Master’s Degree in Structural Engineering at the University of Queensland, which he completed in 1997 before working for Price and Myers (London) as a structural engineer. In London, Greg developed his skills working in multi disciplinary design groups led by architects and upon his return to Australia was invited to join Arup, where he spent a decade working in and leading structural and multi-disciplinary engineering teams both in Australia and abroad. This time included leading teams on a number of high profile projects. Many of these share the common threads of expressed structure and sensitive architectural planning.
"Shaping better cities for people needs architects and engineers who are both inventive and outcome focussed.
Greg's engineering creativity and collaborative skill makes him the ideal team player for those who want to 'make a difference'."
