José María Correa joined the team at Bryden Wood in October 2017, having previously worked for several years as a Structural Engineer, at both a London based architectural firm and in an engineering company in Madrid. He brings with him his experience of working on the structural design of a variety of different buildings, including several large scale residential buildings and additional concrete and steel building structures.
Due to his architectural background and his specialisation in the design and calculation of building structures, José has a broad perspective across both disciplines, which enables him to combine the key elements of structural engineering work and architectural design aims. This perspective, is helpful when facing the challenge of designing a building structure, while maintaining or strengthening the architectural essence.
His earlier career and his structural design vision, coupled with his numerical and analytical skills, help him to solve a wide range of complex structural problems. He is also an expert in stiffness matrix method and finite element method calculation software, which are useful when analysing the performance of different complex structures.
During his time at Bryden Wood, Joséhas been involved in the design and calculation of the structure for Circle Birmingham Hospital and its adjacent car park, and the refurbishment of several roof structures at Heathrow T3 airport.
