Elliott Wood are no ordinary engineers. They are activists for a new kind of engineering profession, driven to change the way we design, construct and inhabit the built environment. Their Transport offer centres on understanding the link between transport and land use, particularly the future shape of our towns and cities, and changing people’s attitudes towards travel to encourage use of sustainable modes to engineer a healthier, and happier society. Melanie de Wet recently joined Elliott Wood as Transport Lead, with 20 years’ experience in transport planning for major development schemes in the UK and her native South Africa.
