calfordseaden is pleased to welcome two new members to our Civil & Structural Engineering Team, Mazedur Rahman, Partner and Civil & Water Resources Engineer, and Ruben Sanmartin Varela, Principal Civil Engineer. Both Maz and Ruben boast a wealth of experience across many sectors, with a keen focus on industrial and commercial schemes. The continued expansion of our C&S team is part of the wider vision to deliver a full package of services through a more holistic one-stop-shop approach.
Maz and Ruben have worked closely together for the past five years at civil engineering consultancies AECOM and HDR (formerly Bradbrook Consulting.)
Ruben started his career in Spain as a contractor, then moved to London where he has spent the past seven years as a civil engineer, working across all sectors from commercial and industrial to residential.
Maz has over 18 years’ experience in civil engineering, with strong expertise in water resources and flood risk. He has worked on a wide range of schemes across multiple sectors and has experience working both internationally and locally.
Together, Maz & Ruben have delivered some exemplar schemes: Northern Arc, Burgess Hill, a 200-hectare strategic 3,500 home development for Homes England whereby Maz acted as Lead Engineer and Ruben prepared the highways design, and Horizon 120, a business park providing in excess of 750,000 sq ft of hi-tech, industrial, office and logistics space. One of the key challenges for Horizon 120 were to coordinate the whole work and provide the best service to the client through the contract and the principal designer, while supporting the contractor.
Maz is looking forward to playing a vital role in enhancing the C&S Engineering teams service offering, to support our clients in unlocking difficult sites for future development. His experience in working with sites with constraints and risks has enabled him to prove his ability to find and implement solutions efficiently, while working closely and collaboratively with key stakeholders, clients, and design teams.
We look forward to sharing more updates from our C&S team and we are pleased to have Maz and Ruben on board to support our growth.
