Luke Winch

Low Carbon Manager, Galliford Try

Luke began his career as a Temporary Works Designer, working across many sectors including several bridge projects, such as the South-East Aylesbury Link Road, the Nuneham Viaduct Emergency Reconstruction and the A52 footbridge. 

His passion for sustainability and low carbon design in civil engineering led him to work on behalf of the Temporary Works forum to produce industry guidance on considering embodied carbon in temporary works and construction.

Luke is now a Low Carbon Manager at Galliford Try, where he leads the efforts in the infrastructure business to decarbonise their projects through the creation of governance and championing trials and innovations.

Despite his change in career, Luke is still actively working on decarbonising temporary works, working on the next phase of guidance production and industry engagement whilst drawing on his previous design experience to shift decarbonisation efforts further left to the preconstruction phase to have a greater carbon reduction impact.
