Andrew Morrison leads our specialised structures team and provides risk- and performance-based engineering for a wide variety of structures and equipment. Andrew has considerable experience in the design, assessment and retrofit of structures to withstand demands caused by natural or human-caused hazards, including earthquakes, explosions and impacts. Using techniques ranging from hand calculations to finite element modeling to physical testing, he seeks to understand a structure’s vulnerability and realistic performance requirements and uses this information to identify cost-effective approaches for reducing risk. Having served clients across such industries as defence, oil and gas, nuclear energy, transportation, manufacturing, banking, biopharmaceutical and professional services, Andrew has worked extensively in the defense sector ensuring the seismic safety of structures related to the U.K.’s nuclear submarine programme and civil nuclear power facilities. He has also undertaken various natural hazard risk assessments and facility condition surveys for manufacturing plants around the globe.
