Hugh Gallagher

Senior Structural Technician

Hugh began his career as a Trainee Draughtsman with Ove Arup & Partners working in a large drawing office surrounded by drawing boards and Rotring pens. The way drawings are now produced has of course totally changed with CAD systems such as AutoCAD and 3D modelling using Revit now the norm. However the fundamental way buildings are put together still requires good construction detailing.

He enjoys being able to pull together structures that incorporate the Architects vision but also include particle construction buildability to ensure the on-site phase of the works can run smoothly.

Hugh joined Axiom Structures in May 2016, having worked previously with Alan and Joana in a Structural Engineering Consultancy called Bolton Priestley.

Outside of work Hugh plays 5aside football, swimming, cycling, skiing and running.
Any other free time is taken up with DIY, cooking, eating and socialising with friends, family and work colleagues usually on a Friday night after a long week in front of the computer monitor.
