Tom Wycherley, Senior Structural Engineer

View Profile

Tom is a Senior Engineer in our Surrey office. Tom joined CampbellReith in June 2014 after graduating from the University of West London with a First Class Bachelor’s degree in Civil and Environmental Engineering with honours. Since joining the company he has worked on a variety of projects, including the Cape Sierra Hotel in Freetown, with which he has been shortlisted for the British Expertise International Young Consultant of the Year award in 2017.

The Cape Sierra Hotel is a large multi-storey concrete frame structure for a new Hilton hotel in Freetown. This has been the largest project Tom has worked on for which he has designed a variety of concrete elements from slabs, columns, beams, shear walls, retaining walls and a number of other structures. He has also been involved in the development and approval process attending meetings and helping to find solutions, and has been on site monitoring the progress of the construction.

What was your reaction after being short listed for the British expertise award?

Great! I did not have great expectations as I did not know who I was competing against… But I felt very excited, it is nice to be recognised.

Grant joined the Practice in 2013 after achieving a Masters of Science degree in Contaminant Hydrogeology from The University of Sheffield. He is an Associate in the land quality and contamination team.

After winning the Ground Engineering “Young Geoenvironmental Engineer of the Year Award” in 2015, he is now a candidate for the Ground Engineering Rising Star of the year Award.

Did you expect to be shortlisted after recently winning the GE Young Geo-environmental Engineer of the Year Award?

I was automatically shortlisted due to my recent award (GE Next Generation Young Geo-environmental Engineer of the Year 2015), along with the other candidates who won in the various categories.

How did you end up in engineering?

An interest in science and engineering I believe started at Primary School after a Victorian themed visit to one of Sheffield’s (former) steel works! Subsequently growing up I choose to study science and engineering subjects at school, College and ultimately University. Science and engineering is fundamental and underpins our society and how we are able to function and go about our day to day lives. It is something I think we all take for granted and society does not reward engineers proportionally as say bankers and footballers do, for example. Balancing this disproportion is something my generation should be working to rectify.

What have you enjoyed the most about your time in the Bristol office?

I have particularly enjoyed being involved in the Oxford Science Park project whilst in the structures team. I have learnt a vast amount of knowledge ranging from sizing beam members in MasterSeries to retaining wall calculations.
