Dr. Matthew Glanville is a founding director of CPP’s Sydney office. In this role, he advances CPP’s goal of providing high-quality wind engineering services to the international market, specifically in Australia and the Southeast Asia Region. Matt’s approach is to maximize client value by first identifying key aspects of design that will benefit from wind engineering and then using CPP’s worldwide resources to bring these benefits to fruition. Matt’s priority for each project is the timely delivery of key results and working with design teams to ensure implementation.
Matt holds a PhD in wind engineering. He undertook his postgraduate studies at the University of Sydney and Monash University, which led to 10 international publications on the topics of wind tunnel testing, full-scale wind measurement, and computational fluid dynamics (CFD). Over the last 20 years, Matt has managed projects throughout Australia, Asia, and the Middle East in the fields of wind engineering and building technologies.
Some of Matt’s notable domestic building industry experience includes several Sydney 2000 Olympics projects, Frasers on Broadway, Fiona Stanley Hospital Perth, Regent Tower Brisbane, Etihad Stadium Melbourne, Sydney International Convention Centre Exhibition and Entertainment Precinct, and more recently Sydney Crown Tower. Some of Matt’s international projects include Matrade and Platinum Park in Kuala Lumpur, Singapore Sports Hub, Royal Ratchdamri Bangkok, Four Seasons Hotel Jakarta, and Badrah Towers Dubai. Matt has established a CPP office in Kuala Lumpur and placed CPP as a finalist in the Master Builders and NSW Premier’s Export Awards for the previous two years.
Matt regularly presents at industry workshops and conferences, and has provided expert testimony at the Land and Environment Court. He is a longtime member of the Australasian Wind Engineering Society, a member of the Australian Wind Energy Association, and an Expert Panel Member of the Association of Building Sustainable Assessors.
In 1992, Matt received the Prize for Greatest Proficiency in Civil Engineering Design from the Association of Consulting Structural Engineers of NSW, Australia. That same year, he also won the Australian Postgraduate Research Award and the Roderick Bequest Scholarship. In 1998, the Japan Science and Technology Corporation awarded Matt a STA Fellowship in Wind Engineering. Matt is also a Green Building Council Australia Accredited Professional.
