Hawkins welcomes Sarah Hooton

Hawkins is pleased to welcome Sarah Hooton to our team of Fire Engineers.

Sarah graduated with a first class degree in Civil Engineering, specialising in Structural Engineering from the University of Adelaide in 2001. She has since developed a career in design and construction with over 15 years’ experience at Ove Arup & Partners in their London, Birmingham and Hong Kong offices.

Commencing as a Bridge Engineer in their Birmingham branch, Sarah worked on the design of a variety of civil engineering projects including the M42 widening scheme and the design of the East London Line Project (now known as part of the London Overground railway). On the East London Line Project, she was seconded as Site Engineer for Transport for London, managing Health and Safety, Quality and Programme.

Upon returning to design consultancy in London, Sarah joined the fire engineering team, following an interest in fire safety design, where she developed fire strategies for low and high-rise residential buildings, commercial, railway stations, bus garages, museums and sports stadia; including the development of the London 2012 Velodrome fire strategy. Additionally, Sarah’s Fire Consultancy included advice across design, construction and operation, and she gained extensive experience in assisting architects to obtain approval for Part B (Fire Safety) of the Building Regulations.

From 2010-2011, Sarah worked in Ove Arup & Partners’ Hong Kong office, gaining valuable experience in the Hong Kong regulations and approach to fire safety; including design and management of retail, office, residential, railway and racecourse buildings.

In 2015, Sarah’s skills and experience as a Fire Engineer were accredited with the award of Chartered Engineer through the Institution of Fire Engineers.

Upon joining Hawkins in 2018, Sarah looks forward to using her design and construction experience to assist clients in assessing engineering failures, understanding the spread of fire and potential remedial works following a fire.

Sarah is a Senior Associate at our London office.
