George joined Marks Heeley & Brothwell in 2004 as an Associate, where he designed a new 5m office building for Stevenage Business and Technology Centre including alterations to the existing external works.

Prior to the above George worked in South Africa for a number of structural consultants including Arup in designing a wide range of commercial, retail, educational, health, residential and historic buildings.
