Rob Nield

Associate at Arup

Rob is a structural engineer with a passion for creating innovative, efficient and elegant structures.

Having worked with some of the best architectural practices throughout his career he has developed award winning structural designs on projects around the world ranging from solid stone staircases and timber pavilions to air traffic control towers and railway stations.

He is an Associate at Arup, an independent firm of designers, consultants and engineers, where he currently leads the structural design on the Paradise Circus redevelopment in central Birmingham and the new High Speed 2 station at Interchange.

He strongly believes that all buildings should be designed with sustainability in mind, making best use of finite resources and believes that the industry must challenge the status quo in order to innovate.

Rob recently co-founded ‘Make:It Brum’ alongside local architectural practice Intervention Architecture – a community engagement collaboration which aims to inspire the next generation of designers and promote diversity in the built environment professions.
