Hannah Smith, Structural Associate at CampbellReith, has been recently shortlisted for the European Women in Construction & Engineering (WICE) Awards for her work as a Structural Engineer.
Hannah has been with CampbellReith since 2006 and became an Associate in 2012. She is part of the Structural team in the London office, where she works mostly on projects related to Healthcare. One of the major projects she is involved in at the moment is the Proton Beam Therapy Centre for UCLH, in which she has been working from the feasibility stage starting in 2010.
She achieved chartered status at the Institution of Structural Engineers (IStructE) in 2011 and since then has been dedicating some of her time to mentor junior engineers preparing for their chartership. As she stated on her nomination presentation: “I am passionate about encouraging and supporting the young engineers of the future and encouraging more great minds into the industry.”
About her shortlist in the Best Woman Structural Engineer category, Hannah said: “I believe in supporting and encouraging women into the industry in particular, and it makes me very happy to say that throughout my years in engineering there seems to be a definite rise in women in Structural Engineering from when I started”.
