Jonathan joined CK21 in October 2011 as a Senior Engineer within the Structural Engineering section, he was promoted to Associate in 2014. More recently, in July 2016, Jonathan has become a Director of CK21 and leads the structural section and CK21's BIM protocol and development.
After completing a degree in Structural Engineering and Architecture at the University of Sheffield, Jonathan worked for a large multi-disciplinary engineering consultant before taking a 12 month career break to fulfill a lifelong ambition of competing in a round the world yacht race. The race visited 6 continents and crossed 4 oceans, working as a watch leader on several of the legs helped to develop his leadership and management skills outside of the traditional work environments. The experience overall was very rewarding.
His broad experience covers a wide range of building types and methods of construction ranging from small structural surveys to large multi-million pound developments. Some of the building types that Jonathan has designed include; Sports Halls, Swimming Pools, High Spec Offices, Schools, Industrial Sheds, Machine Bases, Residential Properties.
In his spare time he still manages to get some sailing in and assists in the management of Tynemouth Sailing Club when not with his young family.
