Jane Richards, the “Best Structural Engineer” of the year

Jane, Director in London’s building structures team, specialises in skyscrapers and stadia. She has recently been voted “Best Structural Engineer” at the Women in Construction and Engineering Awards.

Jane said: “The good thing about engineering is that it is very varied and therefore it is not always easy to describe a typical day. Attitude and application tend to be bigger differentiators for most people, whether male or female. Most people in construction just want to get on with the project and therefore, if you know your subject and contribute and collaborate to help solve problems, and come up with effective solutions, then you will tend to fit in to construction whether male or female.”
