Assistant Bridge Engineer Mott MacDonald

Philip Chalk is an assistant bridge engineer at Mott MacDonald experienced in many aspects of the construction industry. He has been involved in the structural design and assessment of a number of road bridges in the UK and abroad. Recently, he has taken a keen interest in quantifying carbon in bridge designs and has developed whole life cycle carbon toolkits for bridge structures within Mott MacDonald. He has also been involved with the recently formed UK Net Zero Bridge Group to agree consistent carbon factors used across the industry in quantifying carbon. His work on the project ranged from asset owner interviews and workshops to detailed carbon assessments for various bridge structures. His input on carbon emissions for bridge structures was invaluable to the project and helped shape the recommendations for future decarbonisation solutions.

17. Decarbonisation of bridges and viaducts
Philip Chalk

An innovative project is currently under way with the UK Department for Transport that is focused on identifying carbon reduction in bridges and viaduct assets with an emphasis on whole-of-asset-life carbon management. This uses a tool that was developed by Mott MacDonald and the University of Bristol called FUTURES - Future Uncertainty Toolkit for Understanding and Responding to an Evolving Society.
