John Donaghy

NCE Graduate Awards 2014

I am a design manager at WSP currently working on leading the engineering delivery of infrastructure projects. I am passionate about collaborative multidisciplinary design working with the client group and engineering discipline. I specialize in inclusive costumer centric design that enhance the customer experience and delivers social value. I have a strong understanding of digital engineering processes and how advances in information management and modelling can help us better understand and creatively resolve design challenges.

I believe civil engineering can be part of the solution to major challenges and a step towards meeting the UN millennium goals. Over the last few year I have committed myself to the challenge of understanding how civil engineers can contribute to society! I want to understand the complex relations and connections between individuals and the urban space. Cities are at the heart of our nations, if they don’t work for everyone they don’t work at all. It is therefore important for the infrastructure to be designed with an understanding of these relationships in order to work effectively for each individual.

Please contact me on my personal email address ( or connect on LinkedIn if you want to collaborate on any of the themes discussed on the website. Particularly inclusive design, innovation, design thinking/Human Centred Design and leadership.
