Curtins welcomes new Technical Director in our Bristol office
Curtins are delighted to announce that Mat McNab has joined our Bristol office as Technical Director to support the expanding team. With over 30 years in industry, Mat brings a wealth of knowledge and joins us from Ramboll, where he was responsible for Technical Excellence.
Mat has significant senior management experience and a wide-ranging project portfolio of landmark projects. From the visitors’ centre at Stonehenge to the biomass conversion of Drax Power Station, he has delivered offices, schools, hospitals, care homes and residential schemes that impressively range from £5m to £300m and complement Curtins’ own sector diversity.
Mat will assist office Director, Stephen Beggs in growing the Bristol team and delivering Curtins’ unrivalled service recognised by our clients in the southwest market and beyond.
As a leading consultancy, we can offer all of our seven specialisms from our Bristol office, which include civils, structures, transport planning, geo-environmental, infrastructure, principal designer and conservation engineering services.
Our current projects include the upward extension of a landmark building in Aztec West, the design of the largest student residential Passivhaus project in Europe at UWE, new facilities for Guide Dogs for the Blind and Dorset Police, and the development of the St Mary Le Port site in Bristol, which Mat will lead once it receives planning permission.
Mat McNab comments: “I’m excited to join the fantastic Curtins team at a time when the industry is undergoing huge transformation, and I’m looking forward to working with the team to deliver the great projects we have.
“Taking a sustainable approach to design has always been important to me and it will be very rewarding to continue taking Curtins’ industry leading approach to carbon reduction.
“This, and the potential promised by digitalisation, are the two biggest challenges we face as an industry. I look forward to helping Curtins continue to rise to the digitalisation challenge.
“I’m delighted to be joining a company that is owned by its staff and has an ethos of truly looking after them.”
In his previous role, Mat was responsible for leading Ramboll’s Digital and Innovation drive and Project and Design Management. He will be assisting Curtins to further mature our established approach to digital delivery over the coming years.
Stephen Beggs, office Director, added: “We’re so pleased that Mat has joined Curtins. He brings significant technical and commercial experience which will strengthen our team greatly. I’m excited at the prospect of moving forward together with Mat and our established team in Bristol.”
