Edward recently completed a Master of Science in Infrastructure Planning, Appraisal and Development with distinction at University College London. The MSc provided a critical review of major infrastructure planning and appraisal methods, international practice and assessed how ‘fit for purpose’ these are for current sustainable development challenges.

Edward is central to the successful execution of North’s strategic advisory and assurance services. Edward’s acute understanding major infrastructure planning, appraisal and delivery, project and contract administration coupled with an innate aptitude for stakeholder management make him a valuable addition to any major infrastructure project.
