Vince Ugarow, Group Director at Hilson Moran, is one of six founding committee members of the recently launched UK Chapter of the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat.
Vince is a Chartered Engineer with over 28 years’ experience in the industry having successfully led design teams on high profile UK and international projects. Vince worked on 20 Fenchurch Street in London where he managed the project from design stages through to post occupancy. He has been an active member of the Council for some time having been on the Steering Committee at the London Conference in 2013 and he will sit as Session Chair at the 2015 New York Conference later this month.
CTBUH has established a London-based UK arm to provide a place for debate and discussion about the role of tall buildings in the urban environment, with over 200 currently proposed to be built in London. The council also officially ranks the world’s tallest buildings.
Vince Ugarow said: “The chapter is not looking to champion tall buildings for the sake of them. It is concerned with how tall buildings fit into the urban landscape. Having been responsible for the engineering of many tall buildings in London, we’ll be able to add insight and advice on the best solutions.”
Vince joins a committee, chaired by Alinea Consulting partner Steve Watts and including Peter Rees of University College London, Temoor Ahmad from Grimshaw Architects, AECOM’s Ian Skelton and Cecily Davis from Field Fisher.
