What's the most interesting or challenging project you've worked on?
"Every project is different. I've worked on a barn conversion, which was interesting to design and detail, because this old barn was quite fragile and needed to be carefully designed without transferring dead loadings to the existing elements."
Inspirations/Aspirations for your career?
"My inspiration is my family. I would like to achieve my charter in IStructE and I hope to be able to achieve this with help from Modulus."
An achievement you're proud of:
"I am proud to have recently co-authored and published a research title called “Experimental testing of medium-scale GFRP reinforced concrete frames" - You can read Noel's research paper here.
Hobbies & Interests
"I enjoy travelling abroad and going bowling and swimming, as well as playing basketball in my spare time."
Any pets? Everyone loves animals!
None, but I'm currently considering looking for a dog……… maybe?
