Description

Martin Burden BE CEng MIStructE MIEAust – Martin is responsible for a structural engineering team at Ramboll and concentrates on work that presents intricate engineering problems and aesthetically demanding design briefs. Martin’s project experience includes the Tate Modern extension, a building with a one-of-a-kind geometric structure and striking brick façade required every facet to be planned and engineered with staggering accuracy. He also works extensively on London City and West End office and retail fit-outs, where elements such as staircases, sculpture and display units are integral to the impact of the space. Working for international retailers, such as Armani and Burberry, he has recently worked on projects in New York, Barcelona and Paris. Martin also provides concept advice for development schemes, looking for ways to make projects technically and financially viable. This may involve removing or replacing floors, walls, facades and roofs and adding storeys or mezzanine structures. He works closely with developers, architects, building services engineers, cost consultants and specialist contractors to produce finely engineered structures.

Martin will be giving a brief history of the Tate Modern extension including a detailed description of the structural design concepts, strategies and challenges Ramboll faced in delivering this remarkable and unique project.
