Steve White



Steve White graduated from the University of Nottingham in 2000 with a first class honours degree in Civil Engineering. He was employed by Max Fordham LLP from 2000 to 2004 and was a partner at Max Fordham LLP from 2004 to 2007. He joined Skelly & Couch in 2008.

Steve worked on the new Yaa Asantewaa cultural centre for the Carnival Village Trust in Notting Hill and was Project Engineer on the new rehearsal space for the Donmar Warehouse in Covent Garden, central London; and for the refurbishment of a Grade II-listed townhouse in north London. Steve has been involved in the proposals for the refurbishment of the Polka Theatre for Children in Wimbledon.

Past projects include a Cold War museum near Wolverhampton for the RAF Museum, winner of Best Major Project at the 2007 British Construction Industry Awards. This was notable for the low energy levels required to provide good humidity control for exhibits, allowing construction of a large hangar at a low price. As job engineer for the Royal Festival Hall cooling and infrastructure packages, Steve worked with the Southbank Centre to reduce the environmental impact of their site, including the establishment of a grey water distribution network which was highly commended by Constructing Excellence for its level of innovation.

Steve's projects at Skelly & Couch include the Grade II* Chichester Festival Theatre and regular work for the Royal Academy of Arts. 

Steve regularly tutors architectural students at the University of Greenwich and the University of Bath.
