Consulting Structural Engineers

I have been a practising structural engineer at Holt & Wotton Limited since 1966, a partner to July 2000 and Managing Director up until March 2013, handing over the reins in the latter years to Amanda Cox.

Throughout my career, I have seen many changes within the construction industry and have been appointed to many interesting, varied and occasionally amusing projects.  It has been stimulating, rewarding and for the most part very enjoyable.

However, time marches steadily on and as at 31st March 2017 I will be resigning as a Director at Holt & Wotton Limited, stepping down and taking some well-deserved time off.

Holt & Wotton Limited will continue to offer long established, existing, and new clients structural engineering services with many years of expertise.  Amanda remains as Managing Director supported by Alan Wotton, Director and Senior Engineer.  April Graham continues as Company Secretary.


My career as a structural engineer is not ending entirely and I will be with Holt & Wotton for a little longer in a reduced capacity.  Primarily this will involve consulting, advising and working on a limited number of projects.  

As a result of this I will only be available in the office on Wednesday and Thursday mornings and can be contacted by email at
