He has also participated in various expert peer review panels, project advisory committees, and special project design teams.

After the 2011 earthquake, much of downtown Christchurch was demolished and a new city has emerged in its place, with a variety of structural forms, an extensive amount of steel structures, and some more resilient structural systems. Data collected has made it possible to identify some of the drivers that have influenced decisions about the selection of structural material and systems used.
