The Capita Symonds director overlooks the M6 extension from Carlisle to Scotland

What floor are you on?

First floor of our main Carlisle office.

What do you see?

The recently opened new section of M6 motorway running from Carlisle to the Scottish Border.

What’s on your desk?

Paper, more paper and a photograph of my wife and I in the Alps.

What project are you working on?

Just putting the final pieces in place on the M6 motorway which Capita Symonds were designers on and I was the design project director. Not often you get the chance to build a £120m project on your own doorstep.

What’s your all-time favourite view?

The Drakensberg Mountains in South Africa. I worked there for three years in my twenties when I still had hair!
