Ben joined Hughes Architects in early 2021 following a successful career working in Australia and New Zealand since 2004.
Our specialist Senior Civil/Structural Engineer, Ben has worked with several large engineering consultancy companies in London, Canberra and Wellington.
His clients have included Transport for London, UK Highways Agency, City of London, and Wellington City Council.
Ben’s principal focus will be in the development of drainage solutions and strategies as part of the Welsh Government’s Sustainable Drainage Systems (SuDS) regulations and SAB approvals process within the local authorities and national parks.
Drainage proposals for any new development of more than one house in Wales, or where the construction area is more than 100sqm, have to be designed and built to SuDs regulations. Similar regulations exist within the English planning system.
