"We enjoy working with the AWP team for a number of mutual clients. They are technically excellent and always seem to add value in resolving sometimes knotty problems quickly and pro-actively."

Simon Baker

Senior Engineer

I have been at AWP for over 8 years where I was fortunate to join the company as one of the first graduate engineers back in November 2013.

Following a graduate rotation programme where I have been given the opportunity to work in the Flood Risk and Drainage, Infrastructure Design and Transport Planning teams, I have been working in the Infrastructure design team for the past 6 years where I have been involved in a series of development schemes involving a wide range of highways and drainage design infrastructure works, which has allowed me to work towards becoming a Chartered Engineer on the company's ICE graduate training scheme.

I originate from the Exeter area and other my time in Cardiff completing my degree in Civil Engineering at Cardiff University, I have always been from the area which changed a lot over the years and having worked at AWP I now understand what it takes to make those changes!

I have always been a keen sportsman regularly playing and watching rugby, football, cricket and hockey. I have enjoyed playing in goal for my local and university hockey teams having captained my university team for a year. I am currently playing for my local Hockey 1st Team.
