Senior engineer/Team leader/Manager
David Trujillo has been researching bamboo for over 23 years and has
authored or co-authored more than 30 publications on the subject, including technical papers on bamboo in The Structural Engineer. He is a member of the committee that drafted four ISO standards for bamboo (some of which are now British Standards).
Seb Kaminski is a Structural Engineer in Arup’s Specialist Structures Team and a specialist in the use of bamboo, especially for housing in seismic areas. He has co-authored technical papers on bamboo in The Structural Engineer and was also involved in the revision of ISO 22156 (Structural Design of Bamboo).

This one-day, online advanced practical workshop will teach complex timber engineering through worked examples. It encourages problem-solving through teaching tools and group discussion.
This one-day, online, practical course introduces timber connections in detail and several other advanced topics in timber design to Eurocode 5.
This one-day, online course offers an introduction to timber design to Eurocode 5.
This course provides an introduction to structural steelwork design to Eurocode 3 for building design.
This half-day in-person course provides guidance to early-career structural engineers to develop a better understanding of geotechnical engineering and use that knowledge to enhance and promote sustainable design.
This course takes place as a series of two-hour interactive sessions over three weeks. It introduces EN 1991-1-4 for determining wind actions on structures, outlines the basic principles behind the code and covers each step of the procedure for calculating the wind loads on structures. Attention is given to important features introduced by the UK NA.
This course demonstrates how significant blast resilience and resistance is possible with careful design, planning and detailing of a structure.
