Simon studied Mechanical Engineering at Brunel University in west London, focusing his studies on disruptive technologies, in particular on passive energy harvesting and automation solutions for improving people’s lives on a daily basis. The alignment of his passion for wanting to create better places to live, work and travel and Amey’s core values; Putting People First, Delivering Great Service & Creating Better Solutions, led to Simon pursuing a career with the Infrastructure services business.

As part of Amey’s relentless efforts to ensure zero harm, Amey strives to deliver innovation to improve safety for its employees.  Amey’s aim is to identify innovative solutions to eliminate or minimise risks that employees and sub-contractors are exposed to when working on roads, railways, at height, underground or underwater.

Simon is focused on accelerating the development and adoption of game changing technologies to challenge the convention and push the boundaries in the ever resistant infrastructure sector. VR and AR are but one of the technologies that Simon believes to be critical in the future development of the industry, particularly with regards to training and safety.
