He has in depth knowledge of the technical requirements for multiple sports including football, rugby union, tennis and athletics.
He is currently undertaking a Data Analytics masters module run by Arup’s own university with support from Southampton University and UCL. His interest is in how data can be applied across all aspects of stadia design from benchmarking designs, spatializing data in three dimensions as design options through to how data analysis can be used to measure a venue’s operational performance once it has opened.
Andrew is also undertaking a sports related research project at Arup investigating atmosphere in stadia studying the key components that contribute to atmosphere and how the geometry, form and materiality of stadia design can either impact or enhance the acoustic environment within the venue.
