Fordham makes Tweddell senior partner

Tamsin-TweddellUK: Building services firm Max Fordham has appointed sustainability expert Tamsin Tweddell as a senior partner.

Tamsin joined the London-based practice in 2000, having studied natural sciences at Cambridge University. Much of her work at the practice has been concerned with ensuring the buildings Max Fordham complete perform as designed. She has been instrumental in developing the practice’s soft landings approach to engineering.

Tamsin’s appointment as a senior partner comes at a time when there is growing awareness of the under-representation of women in the engineering industry.

“It makes me proud to work for a practice where nearly a quarter of the engineers are women,” Tamsin said. “Engineering has for too long been seen as an industry for men, but diversity is essential if we are to find new ways of thinking about the problems we will face in the years to come.”

This year marks the fiftieth anniversary of Max Fordham establishing his practice in Camden. The practice now has five offices across the UK and has a team of over 180 engineering professionals.
