JRL Civil Engineering
Yvonne started her engineering life in 1995 in Aachen, Germany where she qualified as a civil and structural engineer specialising in Geotechnics, Water and Wastewater Management, Highway Design and Tunnelling. She started work in 2001 in the UK as a consultant with Atkins and insisted on a site placement resulting in nine months working at Westfield Shopping Centre. However, she decided she belonged in the contractor’s world and remained working for Cementation which allowed her more time on site, and she progressed to Section Manager before taking up a role as Design Team Leader.
After a short career break travelling through India, Nepal, South East Asia and Australia, she joined the newly formed BAUER subsidiary in the UK where she progressed from Project Manager to Construction and Technical Director. During this time she was involved in extremely challenging projects and took part in the Fleming Award 2011 with the construction of the D-shaped pile.
In 2016, Yvonne set up her own business, ATD Engineering. Since then, she has worked on other interesting projects such as London City Airport, Thames Tideway and Gothenburg Central Station. She now works as General Manager for JRL Civil Engineering. Within the industry, she is known as a strong leader with a passion for the practical application of geotechnical engineering and her attention to detail.
