Paul studied architecture and town planning at the University of Technology in Delft in the Netherlands and went on to join MacCormac, Jamieson and Prichard in London, to work on university projects in Oxford and Bristol. He now focusses on construction design and technology, an essential part of the practice's work and key to innovation. Now in London after being based in Asia for many years the projects he has undertaken cover a wide range and scope, from conceptual design and building physics studies, to providing sub-contractor's details.
In Marchafter eight years of tireless work, the largest hydroelectric project in Ontario in the past 50 years came to completion to the cheers of hundreds of onlookers. The tunnel delivers enough water to increase average annual energy output by 1.

Ontario is rapidly emerging as an international hub for developing innovative clean tech solutions and delivering them to markets worldwide. But it's not just about power generation.
Like Ontario's long-term energy strategy, the Niagara Tunnel project is ambitious in every way: Robbins, a manufacturer of underground construction machinery, was contracted to build the world's largest hard-rock tunnel boring machine for the project. Fully assembled, the 4,tonne Big Becky - nicknamed by local school children - measured an impressive m long and To bore its way from the tunnel's outlet to the intake at the other end, Big Becky was required to bore through more than 1.
Its 85 disk cutters could cut through about 2.
Construction at the outlet began in September Six months later, Strabag and its subcontractors started working at the intake, located near International Niagara Control Works, part of the system that controls the volume and flow of water over the Horseshoe and American Falls. Then Big Becky started drilling in September At its peak almost people were employed directly on the project.
But as might be expected with an undertaking of this magnitude and complexity, there have been a number of challenges along the way. Machine and crew faced difficult ground conditions, characterized by high in situ pressure, swelling rock, aggressive groundwater, and steep grades at either end of the tunnel.
To address overbreak problems with the Queenston Shale rock formation surrounding sections of the tunnel, OPG realigned part of the tunnel and reduced its length by about m.
After Big Becky pushed through to the intake end of the tunnel in Maythe crew moved on to Phase II of the project, which involved installation of a waterproof membrane and about ,m3 of cast-in-place concrete lining. Some people have wondered if the Niagara Tunnel might affect the water flow over the Horseshoe Falls.
The Niagara River Water Diversion Treaty stipulates the minimum flow over the falls for scenic purposes therefore the scenic flow commitment will not change. With the Niagara Tunnel complete, Ontario has moved one step closer to its goal of generating 9, megawatts of hydro power by and creating a diverse and reliable supply of clean, renewable energy for Ontarians.
This is a significant provincial achievement and one that will provide Ontario with a source of clean energy for the next years.UBS is a global firm providing financial services in over 50 countries.
