James worked in industry on a wide variety of projects and has designed in a variety of materials including steel, concrete, timber, earth, straw and glass. In 2015 James moved full time into academia where he teaches structural design with a focus on low carbon solutions, and has been publishing in this area including Conceptual Design of Buildings (IStructE) and Designing Timber Structures (TRADA).
Wendel conducts applied research to drive innovation across a spectrum of low-carbon structural forms including timber concrete composites, steel composites based on cement-free concrete and prestressed natural stone. He was a UK member of COST Action FP1402, focused on translation of timber structures research into design guidance. His in-situ testing of a 5-storey timber-framed building in London demonstrated the reliable performance of its timber concrete composite floors.
Andrew Smith is a design engineer at Arup with a background in analysis and design of composite structures including timber. He has contributed to the development of a technical specification on timber concrete composites which will form part of the updated timber structures Eurocode (EC5). Design of connections to allow for slip is an important focus of his work.
