East of Scotland (M)

Ice News

Graham Donaldson (M) Contracts director, Chap Construction I recently took early retirement from my position as contracts director with CHAP Construction (Aberdeen). Since graduating from Sheffield University in 1962 I have worked exclusively with contractors on a variety of works including power stations, commercial and industrial projects as well as sea defence works.

I have been a member of the Aberdeen Association of Civil Engineers since 1990 and am currently president during its centenary year.

If elected, I will strive to make the Institution more representative of the membership, particularly the membership of the East of Scotland Association.

Douglas McBeth (F) Director, WSP Group I have served as chairman of the East of Scotland local association and was instrumental in setting up the office of the Scottish executive secretary, which is now making a significant impact on the profession in Scotland.

I serve on the health and safety board, taking a proactive role in raising the profile of health and safety culture in the industry.

I am a member of the central and eastern European committee, and during the past two years have been part of a team that has established links with the engineering institutions in the Czech Republic.

Within WSP Group, I act as supervising civil engineer helping with the professional development of graduate engineers.

Fraser Smith (M) Senior scientific officer, Dundee University I entered the construction industry as an engineer with Sir Robert McAlpine before leaving to take up a post as research fellow at the Department of Civil Engineering at the University of Dundee in 1985.

I have become involved in a range of experimental work in structures, soil mechanics and fluids, including the development of the Archie masonry arch computer analysis program.

I have served on both the East of Scotland Association and Dundee area branch committees and am currently immediate past chairman of both.

I was also a member of the Institution's devolution working party.
