<h4>Gold Medal address 2016: The Adventure of the Itinerant Engineer</h4>

Gold Medal address 2016: The Adventure of the Itinerant Engineer

In this highly personal address, 2016 Institution Gold Medallist, Robert Halvorson, describes how his long relationship with structural engineering practice and with the UK began with Sherlock Holmes. Halvorson explains how, in many ways, his career has been guided, for better or for worse, by how Holmes conducted his consulting practice. His detective practice involved many of the same issues that engineers face: his work required technical knowledge; he had clients of all sorts to deal with; he worked with intransigent public officials; he had to use his skills to investigate unknowns and arrive at logical conclusions; and so on. Halvorson shares some of the little bits of wisdom that others – colleagues, friends and, of course, Holmes himself – have shared with him over the years.
