~Flow Engineering_Anna Bruni (Buro Happold): Water - A Risk and a Resource

1347468300 - 1347474600

Anna Bruni, an engineer from Buro Happold, took us on a journey along the water cycle from a young engineer’s point of view. In a dynamic talk at The Discovery Museum, she provided an overview of how as a society and as engineers we are interacting with, impacting upon it and exploiting water. 

The talk explored, with reference to London based projects and to ~Flow:

What we could do differently or more sustainably?
Why would we want to do it differently?
What challenges are stopping us from achieving our sustainable aspirations?

Key points were drawn from the following projects:  the Thames Estuary 2100 Project; the work being done by the Environment Agency and the Greater London Authority to create a sustainable environment in London; the work being done with Thames Water on the Thames Tideway Tunnel and the water strategy for the Olympic Park. 

About Anna Bruni

Anna joined Buro Happold in September 2010 as a Graduate Engineer within the Energy and Utilities Infrastructure team and has developed experience in water network design and water resources. She was also seconded to the Sustainable Alternative Technologies (SAT) Team to support the interface between master planning and infrastructure design.

Whilst completing her Civil Engineering degree at the University of Bristol she engaged with Engineers without Borders and identified a holistic replicable and appropriate water treatment and supply provision solution for a village in India. Anna travelled to India and was responsible for conducting on-site interviews and investigations in the village.

Since joining Buro Happold Anna has consolidated her ability to identify cost-efficient water supply network layouts and has been involved in developing appropriate sustainable water strategies for a wide variety of UK and overseas projects. As part of a multidisciplinary team at Buro Happold she has been applying her knowledge of Complex Systems Engineering to help facilitate a holistic integrated and resource efficient approach to infrastructure design. She has also expanded her multidisciplinary experience by contributing to the collation of high level strategies for other utility apparatus such as telecommunication, gas and electricity. Anna has also been involved in stakeholder consultation processes and in the development of water balances and demand reduction strategies.  


The talk will explore, with reference to London based projects and to FLOW:

  • What we could do differently or more sustainably?
