Neil Anderson


Principal Engineer

Neil received a MEng in Mechanical Engineering with Sustainable Development from the University of Birmingham in 2009. After gaining valuable experience from numerous engineering roles, Neil was employed by engineering partnership Troup Bywaters + Anders for five years from 2013. Here he developed design solutions for the new £18m Royal College of Pathologists headquarters in Aldgate, among many other developments.

Neil joined Skelly & Couch in 2018 and is working on a variety of projects, including the delivery of the masterplan for the City of London Freemen’s School, which involves several phases and includes infrastructure upgrade works, the refurbishment of the Grade II*-listed house and an extension to the existing sports hall and changing rooms. Neil’s work on the main house included surveying the existing building and establishing service routes and penetrations though the listed fabric; and working with the architect to devise methods to improve the integration of the new MEP services within the building. The masterplan also delivers a clubhouse for the Old Freemen’s Association, as well as a new swimming pool, which won a RIBA South East Sustainability Award.

Neil is presently contributing to the transformation of Twickenham Riverside, which provides a contextual mixed-use scheme featuring at least 50 per cent affordable housing along with a major new public space and town square. He is also Principal Engineer on the graduate accommodation at Clare Hall, Cambridge, and on the Gradel Quad development and new student housing for New College, Oxford. This project features work and alterations to a listed building, as well as the development of two new student residential buildings and facilities for the neighbouring New College School.

Other residential and public realm work includes the Malmo Quay West housing scheme of 80 apartments around a courtyard in the Lower Ouseburn Valley, Newcastle, for joint venture Carillion-igloo; and the Gascoigne Estate East in Barking, east London, which is delivering a landmark development of Scandinavian-style housing of five blocks of over 500 flats each.
