Russell joins Symmetrys with more than 25 years experience of structural design, at practices such as Dewhurst Macfarlane and Partners, Ramboll (then Whitby Bird) and AECOM. He has a broad range of experience of management and design including the commercial sector, but his principal emphasis has been on complex buildings, refurbishments or those with strong architectural influence. Many of Russell’s award winning projects have been published in the architectural press.
He has a detailed appreciation of all major building materials with particular expertise in architecturally exposed structures in steel, concrete and timber. Russell has given talks to architectural schools and other construction professionals on sustainable structural design and architectural structural design. Whilst possessing a ruthless commercial streak, he can still often be found hugging the local trees.
