Female force

JANE WERNICK, one of Ove Arup's leading structural engineers, has left after 22 years and set up on her own, creating one of the very few female engineering practices in the UK.

Wernick is known for her rapport with leading architects of her generation. She worked with Marks & Barfield on the Millennium Wheel, Renzo Piano on the Beyler Art Gallery in Basle and Zaha Hadid on the Cardiff Opera House bid.

In the first week of her new role she is already working with Hadid and David Chipperfield on design competition submissions. She is also teaching a unit at the Architecture Foundation and an advanced structures course for architects at Michigan Ann Arbor in the US.
