Chris Lumsden
Associate
MEng CEng MIStructE

Chris graduated from Queen’s University, Belfast with a Masters Degree in Structural Engineering with Architecture in 2008. Chris initially worked with WDR & RT Taggart and Taylor & Boyd before joining Design ID in 2011. He has built on his early experience and developed a detailed understanding of construction techniques in a range of materials including steelwork, concrete and timber. He has adopted the role of project engineer on numerous projects across the commercial, community and residential sectors of varying size and construction material.

Chris’s involvement in the committee for the Northern Ireland Region Institution of Structural Engineers has allowed him to keep in touch with topical technical issues in the industry. Chris has a particular interest in the use of sustainable materials in construction and has completed the design of several timber frame and SIPS building structures.

Chris gained Chartership with the Institution of Structural Engineers in 2017.

Laura studied Structural Engineering with Architecture at Queen’s University, Belfast. Graduating in 2007 with a Masters degree. Laura has ten years post graduate experience in structural engineering design- the majority of the first ten years of her career was spent at WDR & RT Taggart in Belfast. Laura has been Project Engineer on a wide range of projects and is particularly interested in the Building Structures sector. Laura gained Chartership with the Institution of Structural Engineers in 2014.

Laura has a keen interest in BIM, and was a Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) Supervisor, working with Queen's University on a Building Information Modelling (BIM) in relation to Structural Engineering project. The partnership worked to achieve effective interoperability of structural engineering BIM software with structural analysis software and with other Integrated Design Team software, to produce a seamless and efficient interaction process. The project received the highest grade, the Certificate of Excellence. Laura has been putting the knowledge gained from this partnership into practice, creating BIM models for all her projects and collaborating with other disciplines involved.

Laura is an active member of the Northern Ireland Regional Group of the Institution of Structural Engineers, now in her 4th year on the committee- she is Assistant Secretary
