Sir Robert McAlpine

Lee Wayper MCIOB

Lee skilfully managed a tangle of agendas, needs and priorities on this stakeholder-rich project to build four storeys of teaching space. His essential but thoughtful value engineering including switching from a concrete attenuation tank to a prefabricated steel tube alternative. He deflected site challenges through flexible and powerful programming. And his bespoke acoustic solution for dividing a giant lecture theatre into two smaller halls when needed outperformed the design specification.
