Since completing his masters degree in 2005 Joseph has worked extensively in civil and structural engineering design and consultancy. Joseph has designed and overseen the construction of a broad range of new buildings and structures and he is experienced in the planning and practical execution of construction projects. Joseph has engineered large scale alterations to existing buildings and he is experienced in the appraisal of existing structures, the diagnosis of structural and building construction defects, and the design of appropriate remedial works.

Since joining Burgoynes in 2015 Joseph has investigated and advised on engineering issues including; failures and collapses of permanent buildings and structures; failures of temporary works and excavation supports; uncontrolled collapses during demolition works; building damage, movements, settlements, cracking, vibration and party wall issues; retaining wall failures; drainage failures and surface water flooding; rainwater ingress; groundwater ingress; detachments of roofs, claddings, hoardings and displays associated with storm damage and other issues; internal building fabric failures; piling, groundworks and foundation issues; structural engineering related CDM and health and safety issues; slips, trips and falls associated with building construction problems, and; mechanical failures including escapes of oil and water.
